Hi! I stumbled across this forum while I was searching for solutions for my Gerd and anxiety. I have suffered from generalized anxiety most of my life. In October 2013, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. After 2 courses of antibiotics and being bed ridden for a few weeks I started feeling better by the end of December. The only thing that wasn't getting better was my anxiety. it was increasingly getting worse. The worst of my attacks happened in the middle of the night. I developed severe gerd, from what I think, was all of the medications I took for the LD. Along with my Gerd, i have heart palpitations, that I believe is related to the gerd and the foods I eat sometimes. If I am out in public, depending on where I am, I start to have panic attacks...almost like a social anxiety disorder. I have recently started taking Lithium Orotate, 20mg daily. I have noticed a difference in the way I feel and my anxiety. But, I do not like taking medications...natural or not. I would love to overcome my anxiety one day, but feel like I am in a pit that I can't climb out of.
My hopes with joining this forum is to be able to chat with people who can relate to what i am experiencing.
