I've been in constant pain/discomfort to some degree over the past three months. One day it'll be my stomach out of whack, no appetite, acid reflux, IBS symptoms, etc.... next day it will be a horrible painful headache.... day after that it's random muscle pains and spasms.... then with the shortness of breath/chest pains..... i've been to lots of doctors too. Ive had lots of tests done. They tell me it's anxiety and send me on my way!
the pain is getting much better now because i have a better understanding of why it's happening- i realize that the more distracted i am, the less prevalent they are. A lot of people on this forum can tell you that physical anxiety symptoms can linger around even when you aren't feeling particularly anxious in that moment. It takes a while for your body to readjust- what works for me is, as i said, being distracted, thinking positively and (slowly but surely) reassuring myself that i'm experiencing physical reactions to my anxiety, nothing more. I think if you take a nice vacation you should be nice and distracted and not focus too much on your physical symptoms. I find, for me at least, the symptoms are worse when i'm alone/at home. These pains won't go away right away but you can try to learn how to manage them. I take group therapy which helps with readjusting thinking patterns and not feeling so alone in my symptoms!
