yes this may have been posted already but oh well :D
so i have a flight in 2 months.:) i love flying but,
lately ive made a simple phobia that is slowly going away, its the chocking phobia. but thats not the problem, you see... when i drive a car i start to yawn and feel like burping. no nausea or vomiting feeling, just what i described. now not to long ago (5 months) ive had a stomach upset that when i went into the car (while having the upset) about a 5mile drive before i just needed to vomit, but didnt, whenever i wanted to ride the car again (still with the upset) i felt nausea. took some meds and felt better. but am afraid that itl happen again....because just recently ive had a stomach problem due to low fiber.
sorry for the long story, but could i have made motion sickness or is it anxiety taking me over on riding a car. yes i am afraid if that problem will happen again but it doesnt. and i just need proof that its not motion sickness...never had it....

  • Whether the situation is anxiety caused or not.. unless you have anxiety now (sounds like you do over this), I dont know why you'd be worrying like this over it as you said the meds worked last time. So why dont you just take meds with you and not worry.

  • well, i dont have the meds. i dont remember what it was called so i cant really get it again.whenever i ride a car i dont feel bad anymore, when im not having the anxiety for feeling bad. so i dont know if i wont feel bad in a plane, leaving in a month... just need some reassurance. :)i do have problems on worrying to much, thinking to much, or just plain anxiety. . . i tend to be calm mostly now and improving, but after not flying for 2 years ive got a little worried on flying with the new anxiety thats all. ;)

Sounds like generalised anxiety issue.
