Hi...new here. I got a bad case of the flu in January (even though I took the vaccine), complete with a severe ear infection for which I took a z pack. Between that and the difficulty with breathing, I started having panic attacks. Shortly thereafter, I started having stomach issues and have been having them since February. It goes from nausea, to mysterious hunger pangs, and now diarrhea. All of this has made the anxiety unbearable, which makes the stomach issues worse. My primary doctor has no real answers and has me set up to go see the GI docs in May. I've been to the ER about 5 times with a sick stomach and anxiety. The doctors there have never once tried to rule out an ulcer or gall bladder. They all seem to think it's anxiety (which it may very well be).
But I'm sick constantly and having a very difficult time working. Zofran nor phenergan help. Omeprazole did nothing. I was put on 0.5 mg Klonopin, which I took once a day for a few weeks, but now it does nothing, so the anxiety is getting bad again, which makes the stomach worse.
Could this all be anxiety related? I'd rather it be that than some major health problem.
