Anxiety

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've recently been ill with gastritis, I'm getting better though with tablets and a change diet, but recently started to feel like head is gonna blow up!!

I feel nervous some parts of the day but then it goes it's just this feeling in my head that I can't shift. The doctor has put me on propanol I think it's spelt but I've been on these since last Thursday and I still feel like poop.

My mum thinks I've gone like this cause I was ill for a couple of months and it's taken its toll....

Does anybody else feel like this?????

      Hi Nae, Pills don't always make one worse. I lucked out on the very first one my doctor tried. I was a basket case when I dragged myself into urgent care, a quivvering mass of terror over what was happening to me. . I am still on the meds and the doctor will be reducing the dose soon. I am coming along well.

      What the meds do for a lot of people is to calm them enough to think straight again, and start to search for ways to help themselves as you are doing. That is how I found this forum. It has helped me a great deal, and now, combined with my years as a ounselor, I am able to help others through the maze of anxiety.

      As you are one of the fortunate ones that can handle anxiety without meds, I am very, very happy for you.biggrin Unfortunately, that is not true of all anxiety sufferers. As you know there are degrees of anxiety and different types of anxiety. I have GAD to a very high degree.

      i'm very glad to see you here. A big grandma  hug to you.

    Some medications take time to work full strength in the body. Drugs are not my specialty, but there are people here who know quite a bit, and one is an expert. i learn a lot from her and from others in this forum. We are all here for each other.

    Have you talked to your doctor or pharmacist about how long this drug takes to do the job? Five days isn't very much.

    I was just put on medication for something else and asked how long until I would really feel relief. i was told by pharmacist two to three weeks. That feels like a long time, but the symptoms are so awful that if I only have to wait a week or two to feel really good again, to me that is worth it. What did the doctor put you on the midication for....gastritis or anxiety, Ledgy?

    With anxiety, all of us here have the full scale of anxiety symptoms to some degree, including the ones you mentioned. Looking forward to hearing from you. wink

      My gastritis is gone now, but I am still careful with raw veggies, and only a litle milk. Veggies are easier to digest when at least lightly steamed, anyway.

      I have also learned to chew much more thoroughly, and not to wash down food with a liquid.

    Please please please eliminate dairy. After being ill from gastritis your body can change and you can become intolerant to different things. In the last few months I have become intolerant to dairy. Even the slightest drop of milk makes me feel spaced out and zoned out like I have no concentration and I am a by stander in my own life. Lasts for a week but I have finally weaned myself off dairy & feel better. I'm not sure if an allergy test will show the intolerance but it sounds like the gastritis has changed something in your gut. I know it's daunting. I used to be the biggest cheese eater in the world but try rude health almond milk & oats for breakfast (it's the only alternative milk I could find without a thickening agent) or eggs on toast and look on the net for lots of dairy free ideas. Good luck and hope this helps you. You will need to stay off dairy for about a month I think to see the difference.

    Also for me I found going off dairy made me feel normal. Didn't need to take pills.
