  1. That is a beautiful song. I had tears when I was through listening. Did he write that?
  2. Nice to meet you, Clea. I am struggling with anxie t y mostly because of stress, but lately it's been awful stomach pains and I am having a hard time getting thoughts out of my head that something awful is wrong.. i hope to find suggestions or get help here.
  3. 1 i hear what you're saying. I deal with anxiety more now than ever. I just turned 61, and like you, i get some new ache and think it's something awful. Right now its stomach issues, and since I am dealing with a lot of stress in my life, i am thinking it is probably just Irritable bowel but can't be sure and don't really want to go through tons of tests. I'm glad I found this site. Hope you and I get some answers we need.
  4. Hi, Zippo. I am new here, and also deal with anxiety. Went to my dr today for my annual and we discussed meds that I can take instead of Lorazepam, which I'm on now. I started taking it as needed which started out as a half one about every 6 weeks, and the last two weeks, I have averaged a half a day. The Dr. Is going to call me tomorrow to go over my options. I've been researching a few but can't decide if they're too risky or not. I am trying not to take an anti depressant, because it's anxiety I have not depression. My stomache hurts off and on and lately it seems to be mostly at night so I can't sleep, and tgen the anxiety really hits. I hope someone on this site will be able to help in this.
  5. Hi, Debs. It sounds like you and I are going through very similar issues. I, too, have severe anxiety, and the worries that something is seriously wrong with me every time I have a headache, stomach ache, etc. I sympathize with you greatly, because I am having struggles right now. I went to bed at 10 p.m. I slept for less than an hour and woke up with burning pain in my stomach and around my back. And of course along came the anxiety. I feel some gas on the surface but can't seem to release it. Anyway, I said all that to say that you're not alone. I wish I had some real words of wisdom for you, i hope we can at least help each other through this, and maybe someone else can post something that will help us. Take care. I hope to hear from you soon. Debbie
  6. My name is Debbie. I am new to this site. It's the middle of the night and my stomach pains and anxiety are keeping me from sleep. I have burning pains around stomach and sometimes my back. It seems too low to be gall bladder. I also can feel gas, but It won't release. I know this sounds strange. I hate to go to the dr because they want to run lots of tests and it gets expensive, even with insurance. Does anyone else suffer with this. Oh, and it seems to be worse at night. I felt pretty good all day today until evening and into bedtime.. i hope someone can respond to this that may have had similar issues. Thank you.
