Hey, i just thought i'd post on here and see if I can get some answers before i visit my doctor next week.

For the past few months, I have been having on and off issues withmy stomach. It feels asthough after I eat, or when I don't eat for ages, I feel slightly nauseous but also hungry.
I have days where i am fine and then out of nowhere it comes back. Its not proper nausea and i haven't ever thrown up from it but its seriously annoying.
It sometimes eases a lot after I burp and then gradually turns into hunger.
I don't have any lower digestion issues or heartburn or any other symptoms.
I do have Emetophobia (an irrational fear of vomiting) which seems to have gotten worse after I was going through a lot of stress earlier in the year. Which is about the same time that these symptoms started.
Its so annoying and is really beginning to get me down. I can't bring myelf to believe its just anxiety, I am convinced its something gastrointestinal.

Oh, and I also get a feeling in my throat, like tightness or as if i want to gag, even when my stomach feels fine :s xxx
