Fri, Aug 2 6:45am · Anxiety needing some advice in Depression & Anxiety

Hi there I’m 37 and recently within the last 4 months started having anxiety and panic attacks. Fast forward to now and it’s been quite the whirlwind of tests and test. 6 er visits, 6 ekgs, stress test, 2 ct slabs of abdominal, ultra sounds or legs and arms, ct of head, hida scan, egd and colonoscopy, and countless bloodwork. Crazy to think stress /anxiety can make you think something is wrong. They put me on antidepressants, only to find out my body cannot handle majority of them and only causes me side effects. So now I take Xanax and Lamictal. I just started the Lamictal 25mg last night and woke up wide awake at 4 am. I’m not sure what is going on but any kind of input, guidance or and advice would be greatly appreciated

From what I have been told , anxiety can cause all sorts of problems with your body, including your heart. Be open and honest and upfront with your doctor about all that you are experiencing. I pray you get some answers.

I have been dealing with the same stuff for over 2 1/2 month, it all started with a wonky ekg in the er that led me to being admitted into the hospital for a day to have a stress test done and ultra sound of the heart. Both came back fine, but since then, I am dealing with severe anxiety , and stress. I been to the er countless times and all times a EKG is ran and comes back fine, along with my blood work. Also even had a x-ray of heart done. I have even visited my hear doc and she said it was all good. But still not feeling good, waking up several days a week with just a biggest racing heart. They say this can be anxiety , but I just don't like the feeling I am having. I just want to get over this hurdle and start feeling better. The cardiologist said they will probably do a heart monitor for a few days along with at CT scan of the heart.

Yea I really need it. Now just to get thru this week ok. I just have an awful boss who just micromanages and truely I don’t think understands all the pain I’m enduring. He expects me to just go from one day dealing with this to being fine all of a sudden. It’s not that easy. And he needs to understand that

My friends had mentioned me getting into medical Cannabis, but not sure I wanna go that route. I am currently am on Xanax and propranolol. Over 3 months ago I was just fine. I think majority of my stress and anxiety stemming from my stress with work. I am taking a leave as of a week from tomorrow. So I am really hoping being away from there helps. I can then focus on me and work on getting back in shape, maybe volunteering , doing yoga and things that keep me busy

Hi Lisa

Currently my doctor had me on Xanax and propranolol other than that it’s just me trying to get thru everything day by day. My biggest hurdle is stop googling symptoms, learn to relax and I have to start being more active. I am taking some time off work in s week and going to focus on me. That will be by working out, volunteering , medication and maybe yoga. I. Have to learn to get thru this and find ways to keep me busy

I don’t even know where to bring. The last 2 1/2 months have been nothing short of easy. Beginning of May was my first er. Visit from experiencing panic, anxiety and bad acid reflux. From there they did a ekg and decided to keep me over night as percussion since the egk came back funky. Here I am 37 years old and never had a problem before. Next morning they proceed to give me stress test in which I never wanna do again. Fast forward I have been back to the er 5 other times for numerous things, all stemming from anxiety issues. Pain in stomach, dehydration, racing heart, I have had countless blood work, egk’s , 2 ct scans of abdominal, ct of head, ultrasounds , stool samples, upper scope , hida scan and ultrasound of heart. Everything coming back good. Still no answers. For two month now I have been taking dexilant for heartburn/gerd, Xanax and propranolol. Recently my doc prescribed me Zoloft where I had every known reaction possible to the medication ,to the point where I lost 10 lbs in one week from all the nausea. After 5 days I was told to stop the prescription. Now I have done the genesite dna rest to see what depressants can work with my chemical makeup. I am really hoping for answers but still waking up with racing heart, and all around not feeling a 100%. Somethings got to give. Recently my boyfriend talked to a nurse who works with a Gastro doc and she said I may have visceral hypersensitivity. Does anyone knew much about it or have any insight what is going on with me? I am really at a loss on what to do. I am trying to remind myself I am ok but at times it can be hard.
