Unhealty from Anxiety

Im convinced I have a tumor in my stomach. I'm a very thin woman and I have looked pregnant for two years. I went to the emergency room and they said it was from my anxiety. My overall physical health has depleted severely in the past few years. Gastro pain all the time, My muscles are always tense and I forever have butterflies in my stomach. I get so anxious I vomit on a regular basis. I cannot eat a lot. I litterally only can force down one meal a day if im lucky. I have been in therapy for 15 years on and off trying to get my anxiety under control. I have pretty much been in bed the past three years because my anxiety is wearing me out. I'm 30 and I have severe muscle pains in my neck shoulders and back. It is tough for me to get out of bed. I honestly think my muscles are still tense while I'm sleeping. I have given up on trying to get the medication I was on for 13years (klonopin). I moved to a different state 3 ysars ago and I can't seem to get a doctor to understand the pain and tourment I deal with everyday from my anxiety. All the doctors here seem to think everyone is going to abuse their pills. Well I am getting sicker by the day falling deeper into a depression and fear of the future. I havent been able to keep a job since i stopped klonopin 3yrs ago. I have tried every antidepressan there is and they all make my anxiety worse. My life sucks this terribly now without my meds i worry how awful ill feel another 3years off klonopin.

I feel hopeless. Death would be a relief at this point.

  • Do you know what your b12 levels and magnesium red blood cell test levels are? When mine were low I had anxiety. The pernicious anaemia society say that b12 shouldn't be below 500 although some labs pass you on a much lower level. My functional Dr told me stress depletes our vitamins and minerals. Thus, increasing the problem. I believe stress has the ability to adversely affect gut health and we need to correct this in order to absorb nutrients from food and supplements. I would read some books by functional doctors about how gut health is tied into physical and mental well being. Dr Datis Kharrazian has done a fabulous one about the brain and gut connection. Good luck.

  • Morning This happened to me. I feel very tension with pain and neck pains on my back. I used do massage some medicines for pain and tension, nothing happened. I went to the doct. He asked for an xray of my neck. The result ?? Onset of arthritis. I changed my whole life routine i do more exercise and eat healthy. I thought that arthritis was more in older people.
