Waking up sick

Posted , 7 users are following.

Has anyone else had periods of time when they just woke up feeling sick? I have been waking up with awful stomach pain and nausea for the past two weeks (I'm not sexually active so I'm not pregnant). It is becoming so debiliatating because I cannot eat in the morning. The feelings go away after I am awake for a few hours, and my doctor told me that my symptoms are most likely from anxiety. I just moved into a basement so I have been obsessing over mold health issues. I don't know what to do to feel better. I am already seeing a therapist.

    Google gastritis. It sounds like the same thing I have. Zantac helps me.

      Sometimes it does. I try to keep something on my stomach to keep the acid down. I don't have an appetite until usually after 5 or later in the day. I take Zantac 150mg at bedtime and 2 hours after I take my medicine in the morning. I'm considering taking pantoprazole because it's stronger. I hurt on my left side around my ribs sometimes.

    Hi Danadanielle,

    I was suffering from Health anxiety for 4 months before I seeked help.

    Those 4 months were terrible! I was nauseous 24/7, couldn't go anywhere without a bucket, I would vomit 3-4 times a day, no appetite at all, heart pulpitations, no sleep, mornings were the worst!

    This all started after a simple operation that had complications and ended up in hospital for a week! Prior to that, I had no mental illness at all.

    I went on anti-depressants, changed my diet, seen a phychologist, practiced cbt and after a month, all my symptoms had dissapeared. Don't get me wrong, there is still a lot of work I need to do as I still experience the occasional anxiety attack when I get a new symotom but I have alot more good days than bad!

    All I can say is that it gets better and don't be affraid to seek help or medication, it saved my life!

      The first couple of weeks wete terrible when I first started anti-depressants. It made all my symptoms 10x worse and almost gave up on them.

      I hung on and after a few weeks, I started to feel better. Symptoms became less and less and now after 7 weeks, I feel normal... most days 😊

      Give it time and make sure you see the doctor regularly. Also keep off google! I had the problem of googling side effects of medication and I would manifest them. The brain does some crazy things!!!

    I forgot to add, the doctor thought I had gastritis originally until I got a gastroscopy and colonoscopy and all came back clear. I realised then it was all due to anxiety.
