Panic attacks?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm on meds since February now.. Still have panic attacks but not nearly as bad or as frequently.. I woke up yesterday feeling good. I had some pizza and got heartburn and nausea a bit later.. It progressed through last night where I had upper back pain (i was sitting and doing vinyl mugs yesterday). Now I'm still nauceus, still panicky.. Nothing is helping. I've convinced myself its a sign of a heart attack coming. I've had several ekgs and also blood work in Feb and march, all clear. Is it possible or is this just a bad panic attack? (my pulse hasn't been racing or anything)

    It could be acid reflux

    Eating a good diet is important and avoid junk food

    It's just your Anxiety fixating on reflux,the more you worry the worse the relux will be. Nothing to do with your heart at all, just be careful with your diet till it calms down.

      Yeah I've had my gallbladder taken out after an attack one night.. With my son I had heartburn daily for 36 weeks, so I realized I still can't eat sauce, spice, chocolate, etc, but it was such a small piece I didn't think itd affect me. I guess that's the reason why I may have panicked, I had it in my mind I wouldn't get heartburn and when i did it scared me because I had the back pain and nausea and everything. I'm a bit better now, rubbed my anti anxiety oil on me and am working from home today. Hopefully it fully goes away soon!

    That sounds like gerd. The back gets in in it its radiating pain. Sometimes your gallbladder might get inflammed too. It is common. Do you see a gastroenterologist. Meds, foods and anxiety all pour into it. Its not that nithing is helping you need to look at what meds you take. What foods you eat, and your stress level. It all has to be readjusted. On a good note as you age your acid levels naturally go down. An endoscopy from a gastro doctor will provide more info then bloodwork.
