Compliments and reassurance calms me. The thought of having a hospital or clinic nearby is a relief. I watch light-themed movies, i easily get affected by drama or bad news, death news etc. I jog whenever I feel I can, it calms me after perspiring. I listen to music and pray alot. I google alot which gives me fear and hope at the same time. I am still in the process of recovering I believe I am new to this..
But jus a background. All my symptoms started when I was diagnosed with GERD, I had my scope 2x already and I have mild gastritis. All my other tests are normal from blood chem to utrasound and 2d echo. I have been taking antacids for 2 years already, on and off but all my stomach problems are still there, plus anxiety (self diagnosed) to top it all. Just to mention a few of my stomach symptoms - bloated, dyspepsia, burning feeling in the upper stomach, stomach pulsating, belching / forced burp. These symptoms got worse: tight throat, difficulty in breathing, feeling that my nasopharynx is swollen that I couldnt breathe, worse headache, pain from the shoulders to the base of the head.....whew!
