So this all started about 2 months ago when I got a stomach bug and was sick for just 1 night. The next day I had family come in which just put my anxiety to a high. My daughter ended up being sick for 3 nights in a row which was hectic. Doctors and hospital visits all that week. My company went home and things got better. For a week. My GP had put me on omeprazole for my stomach issues. I went back because they were still bothersome. She said it's my anxiety. She tried Zoloft and buspirone. Both of those made things worse. I started to fear I was having a heart attack. She did an EKG and said it was fine. I worried about that for over 2 weeks. She suggested I see a therapist which I am and I do enjoy going to talk to her. She also prescribed lexapro. I took for 4 days and decided I didn't need meds. I need to overcome this naturally. Well. Now I've gotten over the heart attack worry but I've had a history of cyst on my ovaries and my left side hurts like I've got another. OBGYN says she'll do an ultra sound. I fear of the worse it being cancer. I have two year old. I fear that I'm going to die and she won't have a mother. I just want to feel normal. I can't sleep at night, I wake up all hours of the night. My stomach is upset. If I'm busy I don't think about it. But it's mostly at night when I should be sleeping that I worry. Anyone else have problems sleeping and stomach issues because of anxiety?
