Anxiety pain between ribs above stomach what is it guys!!

Posted , 2 users are following.

Anxiety for me brings this awful feeling between my ribs above my stomach that to me is the worst symptom. I wake up clutching that area and when anxious whixh is allot of the time I rub in efforts to soothe it. What is it ? I know it's only anxiety but why does it cause that and any ideas how to ease ir. Driving me mad and the more I feel the pain the more it reminds me I have anxiety and scares me. Not sore if I am making any sense ! Just appear to be spiralling down and don't know what to do and thinking of uncoils ease my worst symtom I could feel better ! Help any ideas ? X

    Gas? You sound like you have trapped gas. Try some gas x and see if that works next time it happens.

      I am sore it's not that. When I am not anxious it disappears. When I get whixh is daily as I wake up. Depending on how severe I no how high my anxiety levels are It can disappear a few hours later sometimes within an hour other days it's there all day. Longer it's there more anxious I feel and it stays longer. Nobody else feel like this ?

    Hi Gill

    I get exactly the same.

    I have had an endoscope and a CT scan and it was all clear.

    No one can explain it to me apart from  saying its acid reflux and keep a food diary.
