Just why ?! 😞

I don't understand why I can expect the fact that I have IBS !!! Every doctor that I have seen had told me that I'm fine . I have even seen a Gi doctor and she said I was fine . They took stool samples and have done blood test to rule somethings out . ( waiting for results) they don't think a colonoscopy is necessary . And for the most part I don't either. However I feel like the issues with my stomach has given me anxiety. This is hard for me to deal with as I have loss of appetite and feel weak. I can't even sleep good through the night and I hate being alone now . I feel like I'm sick and dying.

  • Hi Jo,I have problems with my stomach also. I don't have much of a appetite. When I'm anxious and upset, I barely eat. When I start eating a little better, I wonder what's going to happen to make me lose my appetite again ! Dr. told me to increase my xanax and take acid suppressing pills. Helps somewhat. Maybe that would help you. 😊 Rubyxx

  • That is what I'm doing πŸ˜” Sadly food is starting to scare me because I don't know how I feel the next morning. I really hate this feeling . It makes me anxious even in my sleep .

  • Kind of like you're afraid to feel good. Something will ruin it. But i love to sleep. Good dreams and away from reality! Don't we sound like the depressed pair? I'm supposed to be helping you, not making you feel worse! Are you on any medications? Rubyxx 😊

  • Your not making me feel worse. I know what you mean about feeling like your not supposed to feel good . No I'm not on meds. I did get lexapro biut it gave me a bad panic attack so I stopped taking it .

  • Hi

    I am exactly the same word for word, so I know what you are going through, I am convinced the issues with my stomach is causing anxiety but dr says its my anxiety causing my stomach issues. I am convinced it is a stomach ulcer.

  • I'm like hello doc ! I'm anxious because this is a new feeling and of course I think the worst thing in the world is wrong with me . Even though they don't seem worried. I lost 15 lbs in a month. But I'm not eating the same either. No pop , chips , or junk food. That I really miss . πŸ™„ I mean I'm over weight anyway . I was 196 now I'm 181 . I a way I feel like I'm wasting away. Wth .

  • I know this is a weird question but do you also have diarrhea? I've lost 12 pounds and for some reason no matter how much water I drink my mouth is still really dry :( I only sleep 2-3 hrs a night and can't stop thinking about it 24/7 I'm so tired!!! :( big hugs and if you need to talk message me ok

  • ((Hugs)) TMI😳 But yes I kind of have a mixture of it . Good thing is I only release in the morning now . But it still gives me anxiety. Like I'm scared to use the restroom. My stomach wakes me up every morning to use the restroom, not because it really hurts but because it sounds like star wars πŸ™„ Also yes sometimes my mouth is dry . I can't stop thinking about my issue either. Even when I should be enjoying things 😞

  • Yea sorry about that lol and I totally know what you mean :( it's hard to battle this and just so you know if you need to talk I'm here ok
