    Hi Karen health anxiety and stomach problems are all symptoms of hormonal imbalance, your adrenal glands are working harder sending chemicals like adrenaline through your system. Everything is exaggerated during this time so if your prone to worry and suffer from anxiety it will feel worse

    You've probably got tension in your stomach as well this causes pain and does make you feel like ripping it out as you say

    Try and just go with the anxiety just carry on doing what your doing, it won't harm you, if you keep doing this the feeling will subside, if things get really bad ask your gp for a low dose diazepam 2mg and half the tablet, this would help in the short term

    I hope you feel better soon, I'm sure you will

    Love B xx

    Karen, have you tried eating cabbage? Cabbage juice, or salad helps reduce acid reflux. I juiced cabbage and ate cabbage salad for about 3 weeks, during my perimenopause phase and this got rid of my acid reflux. Cabbage has healing properties that helps heal the stomach. It worked for me then I gave it to my dad who suffered horrible pains & hospitalization from acid reflux and now he's completely cured. Please try it hopefully you won't suffer so miserably from something that can be remedied with natural food. It was discovered by and promoted by a doctor who cures cancer patients. Hope this helps, good luck.

    Hi Karen

    Last year I had to drive in the middle of the night to the ER with the same symptoms!!! After testing the dr said the same thing anxiety made it worst! She told me to see my doctor and get on antidepressants!!! I never didsmile it will go away I stop the coffee drink a lots of water and watch what you will be fine!!! It's horrible I use to stay up and cry thinking I had stomach or on reatic cancer!!! I had tests done to both and everything was fine!

    With me as soon the dr says im ok, some other symptom will come on and then I will start worrying again..just doesn't stop!!!

    You will be oksmile xxxxxx
