  1. Thank y’all so much for responding. I had my gallbladder out about 5 years ago... it finally got a little better but today my stomach has been making awful noises NON STOP and I just don’t feel good. I guess it was just gas! Never experienced anything like that before! Again, thank you for responding. The support of this place is amazing
  2. Hello. I’ve been doing so well for months. It’s been great. Now I’m faced with what I think is a legit issue to go to ER but husband is telling me it’s anxiety again. My upper abdomen is cramping so bad that it’s taking my breath away. Below my chest and above my belly button. It’s not heartburn although I’m burping non stop. It’s a terrible burning pain and I’m wondering if it’s my heart. When the spasms come, it takes me breath away. This has been going on for a few hours. Could this be heart related? It’s pretty bad and I’m feeling like I need to go to ER.
  3. Holls, I’m on it! It’s werid how anxiety manifests. This was different physically but it finally passed. Thanks for your response.
  4. Hello. I’ve had a normal day although for the past few weeks my stress levels have been out of control, I haven’t been eating, sleeping well, etc. about 30 minutes ago I was overcome with just a yucky and sick physical feeling. Like pure exhaustion, unable to see clearly, nausea, weak limbs... I’m worried I’m about to have a stroke. My BP was low normal but I just feel awful out of nowhere. I’ve laid down to rest and feel horrible. Like I can’t physically move bad. I’m 37 and in otherwise ok health. Should I be worried about this?
  5. I’m so sorry you’ve had a flare up of this fear! I’m in the same boat as you.. clean colonoscopy in 2015. My stools have changed to hard (usually diarrhea or extremely soft) and blood all in the toilet this morning and has been on toilet paper the last few days. Along with cramping and a late period! Trying not to freak, but I can relate to your feelings.
  6. I would say anxiety. I went through the mother load of all stomach issues last winter, resulting in so many ER trips, labs, ultrasounds and an endoscopy... my issues were anxiety! The mind gut connection is real! Or you could just have a mild stomach virus!
  7. I’m 37 and I think I must have been diagnosed as a teenager or younger. But have never seen a cardiologist. Is an EKG a good marker for issues? I also had a Cardiogram (or heart ultrasound) within the last year that was normal. I also expressed concern over my low BP (sometimes as low as 84/56!) and low pulse and he didn’t seem at all concerned.
  8. Hello friends. I posted over the weekend about my chest feeling tight. It’s not necessarily pain but just tightness. It happens when I stand and feels better when I sit down. My pulse has remained suuuuppper low but will randomly spike up (last night as I was washing dishes, it got to 155!). It feels like it’s racing but I will check my Apple Watch and it’s not at all. I saw my dr this morning who did an ekg and said it was normal. He said this is MVP and anxiety. He also did blood work and I hope I get those results today. He is a friend and knows I struggle with anxiety so sometimes I feel like he might not consider my issues as anything other than anxiety! He said not to worry about anything that I’m fine. But here I sit.. with a tight chest and border line panic! Anyone else experience this?
  9. Thanks Bin. It was tight as I was cooking breakfast but then stopped when I sat down. I am very nervous and feel anxious so it’s hard to tell what is what. I just tested myself by doing 20 jumping jacks and I did that with no issue. But then walking to the kitchen, it became tight again and I had to sit!!! I’ll keep an eye on it. I guess the jumping jacks was a good sign, right?!
  10. Not BP chest pains... NO chest pains! Typo!
  11. Hello friends. Usually my heart doesn’t give me panic. My pulse is always normally low as is my BP (sometimes scary low!). However, yesterday and this morning my chest is so tight and I’m short of breath. It’s when I’m standing or walking and when I sit, I am fine. It just feels really tight, like I need to sit down. My pulse rate is only slightly elevated during this and my BP is also within normal limits, although raised for me. Is this a concern? Could it just be anxiety or possibly dehydration? BP chest pains, just tightness! Like I need to just...sit!
  12. Thank you all so much for responding! I think I’ve just been freaking out because I’ve had several weird symptoms this month but I finally started last night. It’s hard accepting change as we get older. Especially since my HA is ruled by routine, body checking, etc!
  13. Hello! I’ve posted a couple of times this month with issues I’ve had that I thought were related to my period. My cycle is usually 27-31 days. I am currently on day 33 and no period. I know that isn’t even really considered late but I’m still a nervous wreck. I’m not pregnant, I haven’t lost any weight or had more stress this month than any other time. I’m 37 and in the last 2 years I’ve had an endo boipsy done, several vagnia ultrasounds and I’m up to date with my pap’s. Had my thyroid tested in the last couple of months. I think I’m freaking out because I feel like I’ve gained weight and I’m bloated even though I’m regularly working out. Ugh
  14. Thank you for responding! It’s so strange! I just downed a big bottle of water FAST and I’m still thirsty! This makes me feel better that you relate your thirst with hormones. I maybe feel like that has something to do with it!
  15. Hello! Has anyone ever dealt with extreme thirst? It doesn’t matter how much water I consume, I am still so thirsty and it’s a terrible feeling. I even drank one of those “IV in bottle” drinks and nothing is quenching it. It’s a scary thing to google also. I feel like I’m having blood sugar issues, although this isn’t something new for me, my thyroid was checked a couple of months ago and all was normal.. the only thing I can figure is I live in a hot climate, and I’m due to start my period any day.. hormones maybe? I am feeling horrible with PMS (hot flashes, lethargic, like I’m in a daze..) My blood pressure runs low all of the time but I read somewhere that low BP and extreme thirst are warning signs of a bigger problem! Earlier my bp was 90/56!!! Should I see my dr? The extreme thirst started 5 days ago after a run. It’s progressively gotten worse! I’m sorry for rambling but genuinely freaking out.
