Anxiety nausea is one of the most common symptoms of an anxiety disorder. Other symptoms include panic attacks, trouble concentrating, loss of appetite or increase in appetite, sleep problems, chest pain or feeling numb inside, and many more.

Anxiety disorder occurs in teenagers and adults. It’s one of the biggest mental disorders and it affects life quality negatively.

Anxiety patients usually feel depressed. That causes serious problems.

Most patients accept the disease and try to live with it, but this only makes things worse. These patients must get psychiatric help; otherwise, nausea will go even further.

This disorder is more likely to emerge after serious events such as traumas and genetic, brain chemistry, personality.

In addition to nausea, anxiety also causes sweating, shivering, dry mouth, hot flush, tinnitus(ringing in the ears), headache, insomnia.

If the patient faces their fear, they can take control. But the patient gets scared and they often avoid the problem instead of facing it. If the patient avoids the problem, things can worsen and the disease may develop in different ways.

Panic Disorder

OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
