Is it anxiety ??

Ok here’s my daily physical pains, left side of upper abdomen hurts sometimes a dull ache sometimes a sharp stabbing pain. Heart palpitations, occasional ringing in one ear at a time. Sometimes a feeling that something isn’t quite rite with me, lightheaded dizzy. Chest feels tight. Urgent need for the toilet at random times.

Vivid dreams every night wake up tired!!

Can’t hold a cup of tea in one hand in-front of people.

Worry about everything all the time I can’t seem to calm myself down!

Medication for epilepsy sodium valproate

Does anyone relate to this?

All the same. Started anxiety meds and stomach thing remains inconsistently. I get reflux and it can cause that pain. No fun!

I have daily stomach problems, constant twitching throughout the day in my upper and lower abdomen, a sharp stabbing pain on my left and right side it switches especially if I need the toilet, chest pain and burning with the stomach problems, acid reflux worse when I have takeaway and alcohol. I assume it’s anxiety as only started with my anxiety came back really bad and assume mine starts in my stomach that’s why I have these issues. When I go toilet my heart rate can easily shoot up 30bpm especially at night when I go.

Might go GP if carries on but I assume I will go and be told I’m fine like usual which feels like a wasted visit. If in doubt no harm popping to see a GP and might give a bit of reassurance.

Gary, after many many years of suffering from "out of the blue" anxiety attacks I came to find out it was my GUT. I have food sensitivities.......not enough to be an allergy, but enough to set my gut off and trigger feelings of anxiety. I read the book EAT RIGHT FOR YOUR TYPE, and when I stuck to the main , "beneficial" foods, the symptoms you describe above went away
