I've been slowly reducing the amount of setraline I'm taking in the hope to try and come off it and for the past two weeks my anxiety has been too much. I had my first episode of irritable bowel syndrome which caused me to have a panic attack because i thought my appendix was going to burst or that i had diverticulitus. I have had exams at university as well but I wasn't stressed over them and im stuck wondering what has caused the initial trigger for my anxiety which has worsened since the IBS. Now only just about recovered from the IBS i have a swelling on my back which has again increased my anxiety and is having a detrimental effect on my relationship with my girlfriend and even though my mum is a nurse she doesn't understand anxiety and thinks i need to man up. The truth is i do but it's not that simple. does anyone else have increased anxiety levels from minor medical problems? or just increased anxiety spells out of the blue? I don't want to have to go back to having endless amounts of therapy but I don't see any other way
