Anxiety makes me physically sick

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi guys

I've written here before how anxiety makes me physically sick then I can't eat etc etc. Well I went through a really bad bout a few weeks ago and they put me in hospital. I'm home now and on meds but don't feel any better, I still feel sick and I'm scared to push myself in case it starts the sickness rollercoaster off and I have no appetite although I have been prescribed supplement drinks. I just feel stuck and was wondering if anyone has been here with same sort of symptoms?

    try to accept the fact that they are caused by your anxiety. I have some physical symptoms as well, such as skipping heart beat, muscle cramping etc. I am still learning to deal with skipping heart beat cuz it is pretty scary, it makes me cough when that happens. but i know these are all symptoms of anxiety, and i accept that i have anxiety, i now move back to my normal school life, and keep myself busy. Instead of staying at home studying during the weekend, i go outside and exercise. if you feel like stressed out, try to scream out facing the ocean. That helps. stop thinking about these symptoms, and move on.
