Default Vomiting Strand of OCD

MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING
-

I've been diagnosed with OCD since a 5 year old and have been through many types. Recently I get really bad int. thoughts about killing myself or other people dying horrifically (e.g a train stretching someone's mouth until it breaks their head). I have to correct grammar and just get really anxious. I often cut myself.
But my main one is fear of throwing up. My OCD makes me feel nauseous 24/7, but I haven't been sick for 12 years (I'm 15). I don't go pale, or ever gag but it's just this persistent nausea which isn't real (like a hallucination)! I ask for my 'promise' or if I look pale from everyone mostly my mum.

I'm in therapy and he knows about the cutting and int. thoughts so I'm safe, but does anyone else have this 'vomiting OCD' and know it's scientific name?

The fear of vomiting is emetophobia, and often phobias can spiral out of hand when someone suffers from OCD. Maybe this is the case. As OCD can occur from any gene mutation (there’s not one set of genes that mutate in every OCD patient) maybe this could also be why? How long have you had int. thoughts surrounding vomiting? You say you’ve suffered with different int. thoughts ... how long does each different type tend to last ??

You're so right (how did you do that haha?) we're trying to figure out if it could be Emetaphobia - and OCD at the same time - especially as it's lasted for about 6 years! Usually they last for about 2-3, and then they change to something else. Could also just be my OCD getting worse as I go through adolescence. Thanks for replying
