Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I'm sorry to hear about your friend's difficult situation. I hope his therapy helps him to manage his stress
. Now, regarding your question, anxiety
can manifest itself as psychological as well as physical symptoms. The physical manifestations of anxiety can vary widely and can literally present with symptoms of any system in the body. Moreover, when the mind is anxious / in a state of arousal, there can be a heightened perception of sensations and stimuli, which would otherwise be ignored by a non-anxious person. So, it does make sense that your friend's nausea
sensation could be anxiety -related. Please encourage him to see a psychiatrist
for a detailed evaluation and management.
Wish you all the best.
