  1. Past hour
  2. I went to the dentist today, and they took my blood pressure. It was elevated. It's not normally elevated. I was in for a physical a month ago and it was normal. I was at the dentist just last week and it was not elevated. Being a worrier, however, it's now on my mind. I had them take it several times, but it remained up there. I know I have a few things not working in my favor today: * Two cups of coffee this morning * A stressful text exchange with my ex-wife * Just always feeling anxious about any medical/dental appointment I talked to my GP uncle and he said don't worry about it. I'm trying to let it go. I was so rattled that I went and bought an Apple Watch (which I'd been meaning to do anyway) to help track my health. It still felt like a total impulse drive (anxiety can make it very easy to hand over money). I guess I don't know what to do. My uncle suggested just checking it at one of those in store blood pressure machines once I've had time to calm down. He did add that those machines are not always accurate. He didn't think I needed to tell my doctor right now, unless it would help ease my mind. Anyone have any experience with blood pressure spiking like that?
  3. Today
  4. Likewise....this inflation stuff is a mess. People going hungry because inflation is not cool even if I have leftover Paxil and Cymbalta fat. Having no life has its advantages, but it's a mess too. GERD is treatable, so that's cool, too.

  6. Thanks for the response guys...I really appreciate. I read up on GERD and boy it sounds awfully familiar.
  7. It's not my first time to pay a visit this website, i am browsing this website dailly and obtain nice facts from here all the time.
  8. It's wonderful that you are getting thoughts from this post as well as from our argument made at this time.
  9. Howdy, I believe your web site could be having internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic site!
  10. If you need money to eat, I will send you $50 through Venmo or PayPal. Just send me your address. No need to pay me back either. Just consider it a gift. I don't want to see anyone go without food.
  11. @AnxiousinOH You have to think positive! 🙂
  12. The 5 year survival rate means who is still alive 5 years after treatment had begun for a disease such as cancer.
  13. Yesterday
  14. I can PM you, but if you did pen it, it would be a great standalone post and help others. A lot of people with HA use statistics, but they have nothing to compare them to or just don’t understand what they are reading. i.e. - Some people interpret 5 yr survival rate to be at the 5yr mark you are a goner.
  15. Have you been able to get something to eat? 😞
  16. I hope you're okay out there - it's been 13 days.
  17. Last week
  18. Sorry you're going through this. I've had stomach pains on and off for a few days too
  19. Yep - an ingrown hair can cause it. I have quite a few on my upper leg from wearing compression shorts while running. I never used to have a depillatory problem with running gear, but I guess it has started up. I yank hair out and it growns in weird.
  20. Yep - anxety, or just stress, can cause the acid to increase activity a bit. Any irritation would make feelings worse. @sTeaLth I am glad you are getting relief. It's not a very good feeling to endure.
  21. I finally talked to another doctor on Saturday and he agreed with my initial assessment from the PA I visited a few weeks ago. Sounds like some inflammation from an infection I had in my stomach. He gave me stronger PPIs to take for two weeks. I am three days in and it feels far better already. These types of things are common sadly. The gnawing feeling generally is the acid in your stomach against inflammation. Just FYI.
  22. Probably inflamed hair follicle, assuming (forgive me) you have hair down there
  23. I can’t be certain, but I might have been the one who posted that, but I don’t believe it was a stickie. I use statistics a lot to calm my HA, and especially on AZ I posted on that. If you’re interested, it would be easier if you DM me. I’ll be happy to give you all the ways stats can help you. Bob
  24. Plus, the original poster and Wesgirl are in their 20s. You’d be in the medical journals if you had any of those type cancers, unless there is a family history of EARLY such cancers.
  25. I get the gnawing feeling myself and I have had many tests and no serious cause has ever been found.
  26. I think its the gnawing symptom that scares me. It went away Friday through Sunday and is back this morning.
  27. We are the same age. The anxiety can take things in many directions. Getting to the point where you worry about not seeing your daughters grow up is a concern. The only time I have had issues with my stomach was with the lockdown. I am usually pretty active, but the threat of $750 fine for being caught outside without a mask by the police - to someone with anxiety who runs the streets in the city (literally), I went from active to sedentary for six weeks. Upon trying to get back into shape, I actually had to take an antacid in the initial weeks because the stomach acid would bubble up and cause heartburn. In 20 years (at the time - this was 2020) of exercise, that had NEVER happened to me. Fortunately, it eventually passed and I could run with an antacid. Come to think of it - I did have coffee before the runs! Coffee contains acid and so does many foods. I have a feeling that this will eventually pass for you. Anxiety can dredge up extra symptoms to make you think something is worse than it is.
  28. I literally have the exact same thing right now. Have for a few weeks. I went to a PA who told me it was likely an infection that my stomach is still healing from which was causing heartburn. Mine has slowly improved taking PPIs. I’d suggest that and chill for awhile. See if it improves.
  29. My GI physician has told me stomach cancer is rare and mostly seen in the elderly .
