Hi Everyone!
« on: March 25, 2014, 08:40:31 AM »
Hi all!

I'm new to the forum.  I'm a guy in my mid-30s - never thought that I'd have any anxiety issues (never was much of an anxious person, although have some OCD tendencies and tend to worry more than usual), but here I am.  I had an event a few months ago that involved two weeks of some type of GI bug.  Cause was never determined, in fact doctors simply chalked it up to a "long lasting stomach bug" and I lost 14+lbs in two weeks.  Over time the GI symptoms mainly resolved and I gained the weight back, which I am very thankful for.  However, I still have some odd symptoms (LUQ pain, internal "shakiness", constipation) and given a cause of the GI issue was never found, I'm now in a constant state of worry about these new symptoms.  I had a abdominal CT during the GI issue, which came back clean and have had numerous other tests (blood, Ultrasound, etc) which all show no issues.  I'm very much struggling to accept these tests given continuing symptoms (not imagined)...

Regardless, I very much appreciate this forum as a place to interact with people struggling with similar worries.  I'm working on not worrying, but it is definitely a struggle.  Hope everyone is having a great week and I look forward to talking with you more...

I, too, just joined -- thank you for providing the info.  I think the chat rooms could help out a lot.  Here's to less anxiety!
