i have had vomiting on and off for the past week usually after dinner and dryreaching during the day and have a reduced appitite i have put this down to the fact that i am about to fly to australia is this a panic attack
Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question.

This is unlikely to be due to a panic attack.

Vomiting after taking food can be due to Gastritis - inflammaiton of the inner lining of the stomach. This inflammation can cause collection of gas, bloating, loss of appetite, acid reflux, dry heaves etc.

Gastritis can be due to stress of any kind - so it is very possible that in your case, stress over flying to Australia is causing these symptoms.

Please take Prevacid tablets, available without a prescription. You can also take any antacid medicine like Tums. Taking bland food - small meals at frequent intervals will help.

I hope this helps.
