Doctor can evaluate: Nausea/vomiting may be gi-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, & even reaction to stress. Doc can find & treat.

See ur doc, find out: Only after restaurants? What kind? What foods do you eat? How is it different from food at home? Alcohol when you go out? Nausea at home? Could be reflux of stomach contents into esophagus, biliary issues, stomach inflammation, even celiac sprue keep a diet/symptom diary for several days, include everything you eat and drink, at home and in restaurants.

First , see MD: Once medical problems are ruled out, make a list of the stresses, conflicts & problems in your life that could be contributing to your anxiety. High stress levels (esp. When Adrenalin & cortisol are produced) can make people feel hot & nauseated. If you can make changes in your life that reduce your problems, your symptoms should subside. If they don't, maybe a counselor can help. Good luck!

Change Thinking: Tell yourself that anxiety is distressing but not dangerous. Accept you are going to feel anxious and that you are going to do well on test(provided of course you study). The more you can accept your feelings and face the test the better you'll be

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as anxiety or depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
