Hi! I am 21 years old and have a problem with eating. This has been happening to me for about the past 2 years, more frequently now. Here is my problem, every time I eat, I feel the need to throw up or am about to throw up. Most of the time I eat, I all of a sudden feel the need to throw up or dry heave and most of the time it is just dry heaving, I don't actually throw up. This started happening to me about 2 years ago, but it wasn't as frequent as it is now. Two years ago, I would only feel the need to throw up if I am full but keep eating. Now, I feel like throwing up in the middle of eating and I am not even full. When I begin to get the feeling of throwing up, I begin to dry heave and after dry heaving is when I start to feel better and the feeling of throwing up goes away. It is embarrassing because it happens in public a lot. When I was younger I use to be able to eat anything and even if I was full I was able to eat more and not feel sick. I don't think I have an eating disorder, I eat whatever I want, but it just seems like whatever I eat doesn't want to stay down unless I dry heave. I know for sure I am not pregnant too.. is there something wrong with me?
