Abdominal/Oesophical issues not sure if me or anxiety.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Before I start, forgive me for rambling. Understandably, mentioning anxiety, this could go in that forum rather than this, however, I feel this is the right place for me to get feedback. I'm 22, and for about 4 years, possibly 5, I've had issues with my abdomen, an example of some of the symptoms would be, excess wind, smelling pretty bad, abdominal pain, ranging from lower right to upper. The pain isn't unbearable, merely an annoyance, and isn't every day. To add to this, I've been having problems with acid reflux, and what I think is called Dysphagia? Whenever I eat it feels as though food takes a while to go down, this has been the case for a few years as well, also not severe, until recently when I've paid a lot of attention to it, however, this has been improved with the PPI Nexium.I have booked to see a doctor next Tuesday, but as a caveat, my health anxiety has been going wild for the last few days, sleep has been hard and I've constantly been thinking the worst, so I'd appreciate if anyone could aid me before I see the doctor!

Thank you!
