Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.
Your symptoms (dry retching, gagging) can be due to a hiatus hernia
or underline anxiety disorder. In case of hiatus hernia, you should consult a gastro-enterologist and get yourself investigated. In case your have got investigation like abdominal ultrasound
or gastroscopy done and all these are normal, then chances of underline anxiety disorder is more. In anxiety, number of patients have such kind of problems.
You have agoraphobia
due to this problem. This will also go in favor of anxiety disorder. I think, you should take some antidepressant and low dose benzodiazepine
consultation. That would help you to control the underline anxiety. You can also do relaxation exercise like JPMR. That would make you relax.
If you are taking any treatment for this, you can discuss with me. I would happy to give my opinion on it.
In case, you need further help, i can help you.
