I have that, too. If I get stuck in traffic I panic and get nauseous sometimes to the point where I throw up. I am just now doing something about it, going to see a doc soon. My mom gave me a low dose xanax to take on road trips (this runs in the family) and it is the only thing to have helped. I don't want to medicate, but I want to be able to have fun again.
