I started taking Zantac today so I'll give it 2 days to see if I'm OK. If it gets worse, I'll go before then. If it gets better, I won't go.

You are absolutely right about the 2 types of people. I used to go all the time, then I got a great dr. and I stopped going altogether because she always made me feel like I'm OK. I guess I am kind of falling into the 2nd category. I was treated so horribly by my former dr. and his PA because I went so often...  Somewhere there is the middle ground for me.

 :(  I started being treated badly by my doctor's previous NP.  She actually yelled at me once and I was so full of anxiety I started crying.  Those kind of doc's aren't too good.  Ya gotta have compassion!

My old dr's NP told me "you have anxiety. There's nothing more we can do for you". I was in there for a couple broken toes... Somehow the answer didn't fit the problem and I started crying and went to the receptionist and signed on with another dr. in the same office. I told that dr. what happened and she said I'm not the first of her patients that switched from him to her due to bad bedside manner.

General guideline :

When you get strong pain, go check it out. When you get smth out of ordinary, i.e. felling nausea every day, and until recently you haven't had it at all, vomiting out of the blew, strong headaches when you never had them before, very high fever...

You get the point, smth that is out of ordinary and interfering with your life. All those pressure, buzzing, burning, tingling, twitching, very mild headaches, things that come and go, you can ignore for the most part.

And almost always, when you go to doctor you will get diagnosis of some normal curable disease.

I haven't vomited in years. The other night I burped stomach acid into my throat and then ran to the bathroom and threw up a little liquid. I was fine afterwards.

Today, I was the passenger in a car. The ride was about 3 hours. The driver was doing 80 and weaving and I was trying to read and post on 0409. I drive a lot myself but am rarely a passenger. I got hot, then dizzy, then had him pull over and I threw up again.

I'm a cardiophobe so now I'm thinking I've got heart issues. What do you all think?

That burping stomach acid wasn't vomiting, it was like when  baby spits up and what you described is GERD, the other thing was probably just motion sickness.  Nothing at all heart related.

Wow that's awful!  I don't blame you a bit for switching!

Sounds like motion sickness. If I read for more than five minutes in a car I get sick. Including feeling hot and nauseous. The other option is a food allergy. If I eat corn syrup, I get the same symptoms.

Edit: I got really sick watching the Blair witch project. I was so sick I had to lie down for several hours.

I got so hot in the car that I had to put the window down and hang my head out. I haven't had motion sickness in 40 years so I freaked out.

So far today I feel fine. A little burning in the stomach but I'm about to take a Zantac. I'm watching my diet and eating only bland foods for the next few days.

Of course, after getting sick yesterday and thinking about the other night and the stomach problems (GERD), then my anxiety went through the roof and I got so tense that all my muscles ache today.

I'm still going to see how the next couple days go and will go to dr. if needed.

Motion sickness does not end just because you get out of the vehicle - it can take hours.
