My anxiety came on early this year and got progressively worse as my mom got sick. I was finally put on Zoloft with Clonazepam to take as a bridger or when needed, and most of the weird feelings went away, but one thing that's been consistant and I'm STILL feeling is the digestion issues.
I used to have bad reflux but it has seemed to stop. This could be due to the fact that I've lost a lot of weight as I don't have an appetite anymore. But apart from that, I can't seem to eat a lot when I DO eat. It's almost like the food stays in my stomach for a longer time than it used to, and when it does go through, it's diarrhea. And it's a yellow colour. I've told my doctor this and he says it's just from the stress and anxiety and my symptoms aren't giving him any "red flags". I had bloodwork and urine test done a few months ago and it all came back normal. A urine test 3 weeks ago showed a uti so I was put on Ciprofloxacin for 5 days. I know this drug also messes with the good bacteria in your stomach and also causes diarrhea.
A few times it has felt like I needed to burp but couldn't, and it almost feels like it gets stuck somewhere in my throat or neck. Weird, I know. Has anyone else experienced that?
So my questions are...does anyone else experience this seemingly slow digestion, and does anyone else have little or no appetite, and does anyone else have the diarrhea of another colour? Sorry for tmi.... Is this all just normal and part of the anxiety? All replies are appreciated!
