Feeling anxious: Hi everyone I have been... - Anxiety Support
Thank you for your reply I was just thinking I'm going to have to cancel my trip as I feel so Bad my belly is rumbling and had to rush to the loo and feeling a bit sick.then I said to myself this is all symptoms of to much adrenaline calm down ! And then I read you reply and I'm sitting here doing the breathing.
I read this online thought i'd share it with you "At the same time, the nervous system stimulates the adrenal glands, which release hormones including adrenaline and cortisol that can turn the body into a tense, sweaty mess. Muscle tension (especially in the stomach) helps keep us alert; perspiration helps cool the body down. The smooth stomach muscles are also extra-sensitive during the fight-or-flight response, and the added sensitivity may be partly to blame for that fluttery sensation. Some researchers refer to the stomach as the “second brain,” based on findings that the gut contains 100 million neurons linking it to the brain, known as the brain-gut axis."
I get the same feeling too. I have learned to rub liniment oil on my tummy and wrap a scarf arouns my waist. It eases the butterfly in my tummy feeling and i end up, excuse me lol---farting a lot or have to use the toilet--- but it helps when i do that. Since i went to the gym 2 daya in a row, and im.not the type who.goes there. I hate the gym. Since going there juat regular treadmill then sauna for 30mins, i noticed a vast difference in my mood and mindset. Exercise regularly was the one advice my doctors told me that i never really considered. And now i gave it a try and i liked it.
