Stressed anxious all the time

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi im 25..i am very anxious lately..i went to the doc a few weeks ago for tightness on my upper chest did blood work ecg everything came back normal but the feeling wasnt gone..from that it seem to get just worse panic attacks heart pumping dizzyness you name it.

I went back to the doc he refered me to a gastro doc who said we can do a gastroscopy ok now i was in hell with panic...gastroscopy came i did it found out i have a hiartus hernia and gerd. He gave me pills to controll it...ok the tightness is gone , one upside.

But the anxiety dont seem to go away..i think i developed ibs due to this anxiety. Now if i get a pain in my stomach i get so anxious. I dont know why.

I few years ago i witnessed deaths on the road and a few weeks ago my best friend sister died of cancer she was 22. Now im feeling when i get a stomach pain it is that then i go on google and get more anxious then ever. My parents who live 5 hours away from me came up for a week just to be with me as i cant eat take aways no more just healthy food of this gerd en hirnea thing.

I feel scared if they leave what will happen to me. Im a student and exams are coming up. It seems this death of this girl got to me in a serious way or just the way how she died because before her death i haven't felt so anxious. Now it feels everyday is an uphill run.

Anxiety seem to give me nausea also if im calm i dont have nausea.

I have a problem and would like to fix it. I made an appointment at the psychiatrist for next week.

I love talking about this my gf is so sick of me complaining everyday of whats wrong where it pains today and all that.

I would like to know is this anxiety im experiencing or depression or stress. Am i going nuts. Or am i really sick like that girl.

What would help for this anxiousness, what would help for IBS.

Please anyone it feels like i can cry all day i am a guy who liked no who loved going out enjoying myself with nature bowling and so..i dont drink or smoke nor drugs.

Am i ok or not. I love talking here vecause there is people who understands and who is listening to what I'm saying thank you.

    Hi, I know how you feel I've suffered panic attacks and feeling anxious bout everything for 7 years, I am always worried I have something major wrong with me, I have ibs which started due to anxiety I'm in pain everyday and feel like I live on toilet, I didn't think it was ibs I thought it was something like cancer I've has every test and.nothing is wrong, I think I annoyed docs that much they.jus sent me to shut me up, I am now takin citalopram 40mg which really help me I dnt get panic attacks now,I used to have at least 1 everyday, and I am starting cbt therapy this week, maybe you should go docs see if they can help it's horrible feeling that way

    Same thing here rickm I fear cancer and every little pain or weird thing I experience I start obsessing that I could have cancer. I also feel most of the time that I cant take a good deep breath which I assume is anxiety but I feel as though I am on a never ending cycle because the more anxious I get the worse I feel which in turn makes me more anxious I never used to be like this. Just want to feel normal again

      Yes Wendy tell me bout it. At times i feel ok then this anxious feeling comes and i get nauses it is in my stomach the feeling. I hate it so much. Due to this i think i have ibs now and with this hernia i get more anxious. Hopefully the psychologist will give me something to calm me tomorrow. I just want this negative thinking to stop now. I mean i had a gastroscopy if the was something wrong inside my stomach the specialist would have told me or my parents but i constantly worry.

      Is the death of my friend's sister that got me so worked up about nausea and stuff now if i get any pain or nausea i am on edge or heart beat is fast.

      I hope she can give me something to help me relax and also it mustn't interfere with the reflux. I think if i can get this anxiety under controll al the reflux problems and ibs will go away. I hope so.
