Hi so my anxiety starting getting pretty bad in May. It started affecting how I function, I began having anxiety attacks, constipation, nausea, all of that. It got so bad that I went to the hospital multiple times but it was so busy that I would wait for 4 hours and still never get seen. Me and my mother made countless appointments to my primary care doctor and at first he told me I was just constipated and to take these specific things to clear me out. So I did. Well, the symptoms didn't stop, and I would start getting cramps so he said maybe I had a food allergy and it wasn't that either. So he took me to a GI. They did a stool sample and ran my blood multiple times. Everything came back perfect. I'm having an ultrasound I believe this Thursday. My therapist, multiple family members, and doctor think it's anxiety related. Well at first I didn't believe them, I didn't think anxiety could really mess up my stomach like it has been. But lately, seeing my therapist I'm starting to think that's what it is. She's trying to get me to see a psychiatrist because I may have generalized anxiety I believe and she says a low dose would help. I'm worried that there's not gonna be anything negative on the ultrasound and it will be anxiety and the only solution will be me but at the same time I'm not because with the help of my therapist and a low dosage I may stop having stomach problems. I'm just sick of anxiety taking over my life and sick of wondering if I'm gonna eat today.
