Hi, ive been on here before and then cancelled my account because I wanted to not rely on this website to make myself feel better. And I was doing great, but as my other symptoms went away, the root of my anxiety stayed. It is emetophobia.
So, after, I went online to read up on it and clicked on some people's experiences which actually resulted in self- traumatizing. Dont do what I did!
Anyway, all of my focus went into my stomach and not long after, I started feeling this slight nausea above my belly button. No pain, and I could still eat and I could be hungry and stuff while that was there.
Well, now Im on my period and feel so awful. I feel like Ive got a lot of mucus in my throat, the nausea is petrifying me, but its still located in that general area. Sometimes it leaves and I become hungry but I dont want to eat. Then it comes back and it just feels like Ive swallowed a bunch of mucus. Ive been under so much stress. Ive suffered with anxiety for five months but there was always more than one symptom so my focus wasnt on my stomach then! My brother is a nurse and thinks it is nothing. My mom grew up with a nurse for a mom, a doctor for a dad, and another brother as a doctor and SHE doesnt think its anything. And my mom is super attentive.
But all I know is how I feel and I feel terrible and I have no idea whats going on. I went to the Doc's four months ago, got bloodwork, urine, thyroid, blood sugar, and the whole shebang. And nothing.
Of course, I was suffering from different symptoms then. Symptoms I miss on comparison to this!
Last night I felt super bad but I could still drink and everything. Then I took a zantac and it went away. Now it is morning and the feeling is back and I am jusy confused. I have no idea what to do and am worried.about my pancreas, gallbladder, and stomach. But as I said earlier, I have zero pain, no shooting, stabbing, or throbbing of any kind. Am I just tight there? I hold my breath a lot and it tightens right there. Oh, and my brother said he doesnt even know of a condition with this, and he is a very studious and educated person.
Im literally at the end of my rope.
