  • I think those of us with anxiety get normal stuff like acid reflux (millions have it) and stuffy head and nose, and ear pain, BUT when we get normal stuff our anxiety sees it as dangerous and it shoots us into panic mode 24/7 -which then makes the illness feel worse and the anxiety feel horrible. It's a vicious cycle of oversensitive thoughts. Yes, I hate it Can you take some over the counter cold and acid meds to see how they help? Breath and know you are OK, normal, and it's that f-ing anxiety causing our misery. Peace.

  • yes indeed it can! I suffer exactly this. Acid reflux and the shoulder pain more than likely is tension. I get the full feeling in my head and ears. I've been known to take flu plus pills thinking I am coming down with something only for it to be gone the next day. Sit back relax and let yourself feel stuffy :)
