Has Anyone Ever Experienced This Before?

This has happened only twice in my life. Once about a year ago, and another time-about 2 hours ago and I am still feeling the effect of it. During a very high stress period, all of a sudden I got very sudden and sharp pain in my stomach that would not go away. As a result of so much pain, I felt nauseous, weak, started sweating profusely and was shaky. The bad stomach pain lasted about half an hour, then subsided, but still feel the weakness and shakiness. Has anyone ever experienced this due to stress? I have experienced panic attacks several times, but this feeling only twice. It's worrying me, and I'm not the type who runs to the doctor.

Hi there. I have experienced this many times before. I can pinpoint this exact feeling to every time I have gone through a breakup. I immediately feel like it is because of my issues and my face turns pale, I get shaky, and I feel sick to my stomach. I have never gone to the doctor and chalked it up to my anxiety and nerves. But I do not discourage you from seeing a doctor. Maybe it would be a good idea to rule out any physical reasons for this feeling. Hope this helps! :)

Thank you very much for responding. Thank goodness I've only experienced it twice because the pain is SO BAD.

I know what you mean. I get the same way when it seems like something life changing and horrible happens. I let my anxiety get the better of me and it is actually physically draining. After one of these episodes I literally have to lay down for a portion of the day. I hope you feel better!

I have also experienced this several times . My response to stress usually presented in my stomach. I have recently been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome which is linked to stress. I agree with the other posts I going it's best if you see a Dr just to have it checked it. If you learn it's linked to stress it might help you think about other ways to cope. Good luck and best wishes

Thanks for responding. I didn't know that stress is linked to IBS. I'm going to google it right now. Thank you for the information and good luck to you too!
