I'm 22. I was told I had anxiety at 16 after my first baby. Symptoms seemsd to calm after a while. However I've always had slight ocd and stupid thoughts and the slightest thing I feel or see on me I panic. Since my last baby (naturally delivered and breastfed) two years ago. My bowel movements have been different. I just put it down hormones and not watching my diet. We was eating a lot of takeaways and not really watching what we was eating. I wouldn't be able to go toilet for a few days maybe a week and then I'd go normal. But that has been ongoing. It had always been on my mind along with anxiety on how I looked down below after having a baby however I didn't really let it get to me. I was looked at by a gyna and my gp who took swabs and generally has a look at my cervix. All came back fine. Went to my gp saying I wasn't really going to the toilet and I was worried my bum wasn't right. She had a quick look and feel and said it all seems fine and sent me on my way. That was back in the middle of last year.
Ever since I have been worrying about it all but not really letting it get to me. Over the past few months, I've been feeling a little more stressed and I have found myself snapping quite quickly. I don't know a certain time exactly that has given me any cause for anxiety I just have a house to run. And no sleep.
Then all of a sudden I felt fine, I went to stand and my legs just went from underneath me. My legs were numb. I went into a right state. I think I was nearly having a panic attack. I went outside and just had to breath. That night I woke up having a panic attack. I shot uo in my sleep, couldn't breath, heart was pounding. I as shaking and having a cold sweat. It took me a while to go back to sleep but after I did I didn't wake until the morning.
Since then I've been having loads of symptoms. One that is really getting to me is my belly, it feel so heavy, it's making horrible noises and generally feeling weird. It's been on my mind loads and I went to the doctors. Long story cut short, I'm booked in for a scan on my belly. Since then I just cannot cope. Thought in my mind constantly, worry, I can't have a conversation because my mind is on something else. I'm really hoping my symptoms are anxiety related and nothing else. I feel awful.
Does anyone else have similar symptoms? My scan is tomorrow I'm petrified of the results.
