    Default feel sick with nerves

    Hi,

    Do you know what feel sick with nerves mean?

    Default Re: feel sick with nerves

    You feel sick with nerves when you are waiting to go onto a stage for the first time, or when waiting for the doctor to tell you the result of tests, or when the exam results are due but are late.

    Yes, you have to invert when using not only.
