Lack of sound sleep, Feeling bloated, constipation,farts,burping,feeling something is happening in  the stomach,fear that something might happen which includes death also, the fear is worse during the evenings and night. Fear to even go out of town, constantly having one or the other medicines , meeting various doctors also did not help much. Please suggest what to be done. Is it the cause of a anxiety

    Your Dr really is the one to refer you to whoever they think you need. If they think it's anxiety they will send you to Psychotherapy. It's not usual to decide yourself who you should be referred to, that would be self diagnosing and if you do that, no Dr will ever take you seriously

    Sounds a lot like a panic disorder. It sucks. All you can do is your best to keep calm and live each day as it comes. The stomach is known as the secind brain in science so when dealing with a panic disorder it wrecks havoc on the stomach. I get scared of death myself, i have read many near death stuff and acrually had a strange experience a long time ago i had an incident  but that was comforting, some stories i read not so much so they scared me. Look this disorder fires fear into every asoect of life. Its hard at times. Then there are happy times too. Not sure theres really a doctor who can cure you its all inter related to a panic disorder. I would say a really good sincere therapist that specializes in panic disorders and know cbt and is kind. If the therapist starts talking about themselves ..leave and run and dont look back. Some do that.
