i need some advise. so, about a week ago, i woke up with some of the worst anxiety i’ve ever had. usually i’m able to guess why i’m so anxious (work, big event, etc), but i wasn’t able to figure it out. soon enough, i had bad stomach pain followed by diarrhoea. this wasn’t the first time i had gotten diarrhoea from being anxious/stressed, but it hadn’t happened for a few years before that. i thought i just had a stomach bug so i passed it off as nothing. but my anxiety didn’t go away for the whole day, at least not until around dinner time. the next day was the same. i woke up, feeling crappy and anxious, had the stomach issues, and was fine again around dinner time. the day after that, i woke up and felt sort of depressed but not anxious at all. the following day was back to being anxious though! as soon as i woke up in the morning, i felt such bad anxiety and my stomach hurt so bad i almost called into work. but i couldn’t allow myself to do that, so i sucked it up and went to work anyway. after nearly fainting because of a mild anxiety attack, i was starting to feel sorta numb.. i found that around lunch time i was completely numb. i felt nothing. this has been happening to me for the past few days, but today has been one of the worst. i’m not sure what to do though. i’ve always struggled with depression, but never anxiety this bad. it’s gotten to a point that i’m scared to wake up in the morning because i’m afraid of being anxious/depressed. help? should i see a doctor? should i give it more time and hope it goes away?
*i have talked to my doctor about possibly having depression in the past, but it didn’t really end well. the only thing he told me was “i don’t think pills, therapy, or anything is really going to help you”.
