I have had acid reflux that has burned and affected my esophagus since I was about fourteen or fifteen. As it is frequent and become worse over time, I eventually went to the doctors (at 19) and he diagnosed me with GERD's disease, which my father and brother also have. The medicine I have been taking has almost completely stopped the symptoms. On the other hand, starting from about 16 years old until now at age 20, I have had problems with vomiting. It started when I went on dates and got very nervous. I wouldn't just get nauseous but I would throw up and it would come on fast. As the years have past, the nervous vomiting has gotten worse. Eventually I decided to see a psychiatrist and they believe I have an anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, the medicine they have been giving me does not help, and neither does breathing exercises. Now, recently, I have started to throw up when I'm exited or stressed as well. The strange thing is, is while I get nervous when I try something new or date, I don't feel THAT nervous. It's normal nerves that everyone gets. I seem to get sick more often after eating and the vomiting is getting worse. I researched Celiac disease and it seems to have some of the symptoms I have been feeling.

Is it possible that nervous/excited vomiting could be aggravated or brought on by Celiac Disease? I have not yet gone to the doctor and told him this particular problem. All that I know is that it seems similar and makes my life extremely difficult, not to mention embarassing!
