I've been waking up in the middle of the night with chills and having the feeling of throwing up, including the feeling of a dry throat and non-stop shaking when I do. This happens during the night and has gone on for 4 days straight and everyday I seem to get less and less sleep with nausea. I don't know if I have any anxiety type of problems because I have rapid heart beat all of the time as of recently and my chest feels like somebody is pressing on it. I told my mom about this but she doesn't seem to believe me. Along with these I've had bad abdominal cramps. help?

Hi There...Im new to this site. I read your post...sounds unbearable. Anything stressful happen to trigger anything? If I had to suggest something start by going to a doctor to get some bloodwork to rule out anything like hormone fluctuations, thyroid issues, or diabetes, things of that nature. Also, maybe get him or her to prescribe you a low dose of Ativan and see if that helps and just use it as needed until you have more of an answer?
