Can anxiety cause sudden vomiting, blurred vision and dizziness?

College age daughter who strives for perfection has entered her college class 2x in 2 weeks (meets weekly). Both times broke out in a sweat, vision blurred, felt like she may pass out, vomited 1x. Has no symptoms prior to this nor in the weeks time in between. Very rigorous class which she is worried about. Could this be anxiety?

In my opinion anxiety can present with all these symptoms but make sure she is not having sugar level variations. Also, check whether menstrual cycles are regular. In case of thyroid dysfunctions these symptoms can be present.

If everything is normal, she would require medications like Escitalopram and low dose of Benzodiazepines.
