I'm new to the forum but have been apparently suffering with anxiety for about 5 years. When I was first diagnosed I want having any of it and I didn't believe it. I was in my teens and I went to one pysdgology session after which my next one was cancelled and never reseculed. It all started with palpitations and a headache. Which I though was a Tumor. (After watching a programme) Which I had tests and all came back clear. Over the years I've kinda controlled it and my 'physical' symptoms didn't seem to bother me that much. I had my second child 2 years ago and obviously my diet exercise and sleep have been disturbed.
Over the past couple month I've noticed being slightly more anxious and every now and then getting the tingles. Over the past probably 6 weeks I've been feeling bloated on and off. Not really thinking about it until 2 week ago where all of a sudden. I feel bloated all the time, my belly is constantly rumbling. then last week I wake up having what I think was a panic attack. since then I've been feeling low and thinking about illness. To the point I can't get it out my head and my memory and concentration is so bad. The past two or three days I've had pain jus tinder my ribs, feeling so bloating even though I don't look bloated and my belly just doesn't seem settled. Of course I think I've got an illness and that is it! I'm in with the doctor on Monday and I'm actually hoping he sends me to the hospital for appropriate tests on my bowels stomach etc. I'm actually in such a state. Constant worry. Bursting out crying. I constantly feel hungry but I'm kinda scared to eat incase I feel more bloated. I'm constantly tossing and turning in bed. Feeling so tired and just like I can't be bothered.
I have children so the thought of being ill gets me extremely anxious as it is. I just don't know what to do. I should be enjoying my life with my babies and all Im doing is thinking about a horrible future. The more I focus on my belly discomfort the worse it gets.
Anyone having similar symptoms?
