      I 'm no expert but it sure sounds like anxiety.  Thinking to much is the problem so you need to get out and talk with friends and stay active,  And yes, get a new job.  Stress and digestive issues like IBS are all related to anxiety and virseversa so you need to take care of what you eat. Less or no Gluten, dailry and even soy for a couple of weeks to see if you get better.   Don't google symptoms because it will not get better. Just post on forums like this and people with similar problems should be able to help you.  My case is a little different, mnes started 2 1/2 years ago when from one day to another I was told I had HBP, High Cholsterol, IBS, Nerver damage, Chroni Sinus, Reflux/Gastritis and COPD so my aniety just took over.  Yes, I had less anxiety at war than here when they told me this in a period os 30 days or so. But after clerance from just about everything I'm beter but still dealing with one unasnered question which is another anxiety booster. ;-(  Which is actually under control. ;-)

      3papote thank you so much for taking your time and replying to my super long post. I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that i could just imagine everything you've gone through, but im also happy you're feeling better and i know youll keep getting better, stronger and keep fighting to be the best person you can be once again thank you so much. I definitely think anxiety is playing a big role into why im feeling like this plus my ibs, losing my job etc. Ive definitely started eating better ..and really do gotta go out more after losing my job i haven't done much ..i could honestly say i havent gone out at all .. Only to go grocery shopping. Man its just crazy going from feeling fine to feeling different..brain fog , that horrible feeling of being high all the crazy thoughts coming in..i wouldn't wish this on no one not even my worst enemy ..

    Hi Jey

    are you sure it's anxiety?   Could be vertigo as a result of an inner ear infection. The dizziness causes the Anxiety. See your doc. It's worth checking out, for sure.

      Linda thank you so much for reading my post. And taking your time to reply..ive never been properly diagnosed. But i have no doubt i have some form of anxiety.. Im definitely gonna go to the dr's. Pretty soon ..i wanna get my ears checked out and i also wanna do some blood work to see if everything is ok regarding diabetes or anything like that ..like i mentioned to 3papote after losing my job i haven't really gone out other than going grocery shopping ..all ive done is watch tv, and eat.. I wonder if being stressed out losing my job me flaring up has caused all of this ..its just overwhelming.

      you c[u]ould also consider get your thyroid checked.  When our thyroid is out of balance, all our bodies chemistry is out of whack.  Would be good to rule that out as well. Hope you find peace of mind soon.[/u]

      Hi Jey,

      okay, sounds like you're under a wee bit of stress - no surprise you feel anxious. You're right to have the doc check you out. I have found that the best thing I do for myself when I'm anxious is to walk. Regular walks - day and evening are very helpful in reducing stress - exercise plus is calming and keeps you in touch with the outside. Getting groceries is positive. Nothing wrong with cuddling up inside to lick your wounds, but it gets boring after a while. Get out, at least a bit and you will definitely feel more connected. Call a friend or meet for coffee you WILL get better. This will pass!

      Best,

      linda

      Me too! Almost all my fiends are in the same boat. Everyine just says to ride it theough it gets better over time. But i hate it so much. I eat a lot of ginger now and take a b complex drink a lot of water and hopeing it calms itself down forever soon. Ginger works nicely. You can add in in a juicer, buy it made from a resturant that sells sushi or boil it in a tea or they have ginger candies, but made with real ginger oieces. All work.

    Hi, Jeyr:  First of all, try not to eat chocolate before you go to bed.  That stimulates your nerves and can give you a very bad panic attack.  Stay away from caffeine if you can for a few day.

    One time I had a doctor appt. and I dreaded getting on the scales.  I'm not overweight, but I had anorexia many years ago, so I hate scales...I purposely didn't eat anything. When I got home I tried to take a nap, but it was too late..I had already caused a panic attack by not eating.  I tried to fall asleep, but the room started spinning, and I got so dizzy, started shaking, hot flashes, cold chills, the works..It was a full blown panic attack.  After that, of course, I had to see a doctor and get on the right meds for me.

    Yes, that was a panic attack, sweetie..hope you don't have any more.  Hope you will see a good doctor who specializes in panic disorder and then you will feel much better.  I never drive coffee unless it is decaf..Hope this helps...HUGS.
