Puking before a game

A friend of mine has started throwing up shortly before the start of our games, or during warmup. I should specify this is indoor ball hockey. It isn't a nerve thing like Glenn Hall, and it dosn't seem to be what he's eating. He just starts burping like he's got indigestion and than he's in the bathroom. He's good after he pukes though. Anyone else ever deal with something like this?

Without a doubt anxiety.

Tell him to take some Tums if nothing else for placebo effect.

I have a friend who would throw up before big games (he used to play jr A hockey) and midterms/finals in school (he is/was an engineer). It was an anxiety issue for him, and is probably an anxiety issue for your buddy, it seems weird but some people just seem to respond to pressure by throwing up. He was fine during games/exams, but I guess it was just nerves in the lead-up. Even if your buddy says it's not nerves, it probably is, how else would his body know that it was time to throw up? There's nothing particular special about the time leading up to a game except the nervousness.

No idea if it would help, but he could maybe see a sports psychologist, or just a normal psychologist, to try to get over these anxiety issues?

I'm just out of shape, so I puke during games.

Agree, 100% anxiety. The brain is a funny thing. Your body can be very stressed without any real outward signs that you can feel.

I know the person the OP is referring to. In fact, recently, I was sitting in the dressing room about to walk out to the rink and that person was walking ahead of me perfectly normally like nothing was bothering him. He suddenly veered off directly for the garbage can and puked what appeared to be a lung into it.

It's odd but you are all probably right, anxiety.

The bizarre thing is, we've played at all levels in this league for the past 10 years, but this has only developed in the last couple. We've all played hungover on sunday morning, puking is to be expected in those situations, eitherway not my problem...anxiety it is!

I get the replies about it being nerves but our food must be a part of it also. I would take this issue seriously. Vomiting because of slight stress may indicate a more serious health problem. Your buddy needs to look at the quality and type of food he consumes and his health generally in more detail.

Not necessarily normal but I've heard of it lots. Nobody ever has on any of my teams though. Just nerves I guess.

He used to eat these really creamy pasta dishes before he played and it was really bad then. He stopped eating that and switched up his diet which seemed to calm it down but it's back now.
