If you catch a stomach virus, how soon (after feeling nauseous), do you normally start puking?
I am a hypochondriac and an emetophob. so I always freak out when I feel a little bit nauseous. Also, do stomach viruses ALWAYS make you vomit? Or are there ways not to? Does the cramps/diarrhea at the same time?

Also, what can it mean if your stomach feels hungry, but when you put food in your mouth, you wanna gag? Could this be my anxiety?

thanks for your help.

No to first question, Some people never vomit with a flu this depends on the tor lance of each person, This also depends on persons body system and how they handel this type of issues,(cramps/ diarrhea) Sounds like you have a gag reflux action going on seek help. your anxiety may contribute to it but not only cause.

I’m sure your gag reflex is partly due to your anxiety, sometimes it’s hard for me to swallow because of my anxiety. As far as the stomach bug goes, you don’t always vomit when you have the bug. I think it just depends on the person. A few months back there was a nasty stomach bug that almost everybody in my family got, including my mom who never throws up and even with the stomach bug she didn’t throw up, she just had bad diarrhea for a couple days. Do you vomit easily?
