I'm writing a novel and the line I would like the synonym for would be:
My heart stopped and for a moment I was in BLANK-on the precipice of vomiting, soiling myself, and passing out all at the same time."
I believe the word I'm looking for is an exact antonym of euphoria. I don't believe "dysphoria" would work in this case, as I believe that word has strong connotative ties with mental health and its respective disorders.
As of right now, I'll probably use the word 'misery' as a placeholder; however, I am not happy with this word right now and would prefer a stronger word.
Other suggest synonyms through Merriam Webster including despair and depression but those aren't necessarily fitting for the physical context within my example sentence
