Having bad day

Posted , 6 users are following.

Had a really bad day yesterday cried off and on all day, been feeling pins and needles across my stomach, it also at times feels like I have a tight band across it, yesterday when I started feeling this my anxiety kicked into high gear, started crying and getting all worked up, of course thinking the worst, however when I could get myself distracted from the feeling I didn't notice it, also don't have the symptoms when I'm sleeping. Woke up this morning not feeling well, kinda sick to my stomach and some diarreah, it's like it never ends, of course this has me worked up again, anyone else suffer like this? Every pain I feel sets off my anxiety

    Hi Ashley...yes I feel this way all the time. Unfortunately anxiety and panic can create these awful physical symptoms. Anything gastro related sets off my anxiety amd vice versa. Try to hang in there...drink lots of water and try to occupy ur mind. It helps.

    Sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. Anxiety can certainly cause string physical symptoms. I often get sickness and diarrhoea when I'm worried about something to do with my health. When I think if symptoms I often get flushed and I can feel it the heat rising up! Not a nice feeling, just remember it's anxiety and nothing serious. X

    Anxiety so often affects my stomach. Unfortunately that's one of the classic physical symptoms of anxiety. The thing to do is to break the vicious circle of anxiety induced physical symptoms that then make us more anxious that then makes the symptoms worse and on and on it goes.

    Sometimes physical excercise works for me, or listening to some music I really like, or going for a nap. Sometimes I have to take medication.

    If you find anything that works, then add that to your armoury of weapons you use against anxiety.

    Remember you're not alone, and there are good days.

    Hang in there.
