hi everyone this is a litthe long winded but I hope you can help. I started getting anxiety a few years ago after getting ibs and now I have health anxiety and always think something is wrong with me although deep down I know it's my anxiety playing with me!
anyways 2 weeks ago I was in agonising pain I went to drs and they thought gall bladder but ended up being a severe kidney infection. I took the course of antibiotics but all that week aswell as feeling ill anxiety was there making me feel worse.
I went back to drs yesterday as my course of antibiotics finished and yet I still been feeling horrible and still had some pain, he didn't want to give me any more meds yet so a urine sample been sent off and I have a stomach scan 18th just to rule everything out....he knew I was very anxious so think this was to help me too. we also discussed my ibs which for the first time ever he explained what happens to your body with ibs. I then came home and researched ibs and was surprised at what can happen to your body etc....I actually thought that this was better for me as I would know what was going on rather than being anxious and scared when a flare up comes on. so last night I was fine this morning the pressure headache I had for weeks was gone BUT as today as gone on I have been feeling worse worse, I have been trying to keep busy and not let it get to me but it's so hard!
I am convinced that this pressure headache sick feeling achy muscles etc is my anxiety playing up as I think in back of my mind I am worried about what is happening with ibs etc.....I feel in a total no win situation. most of the time I can brush my anxiety off but not at the moment.
I also started a business working from home and alot of my friends I don't see anymore as they don't seem to like the fact that I am busy and being successful....the downfall is I am literally home all the time working I'm not even walking the dog as much.....do you think my anxiety is getting the better of me. Oh also my eating Is rubbish as in I'm eating healthy when I do which is not often and I don't sleep to good either xx thankyou do much for having the patience to read this I would appreciate any help advice recommendations or even knowing I'm not the only one thankyou xx
