worried about so many things right now :(
« on: June 21, 2014, 07:38:18 PM »
I'm so overwhelmed right now. I was worried over face puffiness (went to MD, er x2, and dentist), headache, nausea (probably anxiety), temperature 98.8 (normal 97 ish), now I'm worried about the contrast from my sinus ct causing renal failure because I don't drink enough. I'm making myself literally sick with worry and driving my family insane. I have to find a way to control this or I'm afraid I will lose everyone. I'm supposed to take Zoloft and I did for years, but now I'm terrified of any medication. I took one augmentin and spent 2 hours thinking I was dying.
Any advice would be great:) Thanks for reading my rant.

I wish I had some great advice, but I don't. Just want you to know you aren't alone. Lately with me if it's not one thing it's another that I'm worrying about. Lately, I've been trying to tell myself that stress and anxiety are probably the culprit for 100% of my problems. It's amazing the havok that anxiety can cause your body.

If it makes you feel better, I had a CT with contrast 7 years ago for severe back pain and fever, and didn't drink anything at all that day besides the abdominal contrast stuff.  I did have an IV drip but I was still a bit dehydrated that weekend (my lips were peeling horribly, not fun).  The contrast (I had the drinkable kind and the injected kind) did me no harm whatsoever.

Thank you for the replies. I went back to the er to have my kidney function tested. It was normal. I also had tondo a urine specimen because my back is hurting BAD. I gave them two samples because the first time I forgot to clean catch. They said I had a uti but I'm also getting off my period and I didn't know which sample was tested. So today I went to urgent care and had another urine test which came back clear. They're still sending it for culture to be sure though. My back is hurting so bad. I did do something at work that may have hurt it though. Now I'm having tightness in my temples and jaws and I just feel insane :(

Back pain might be causing you to tighten your other muscles.  Make a conscious effort to check to make sure you're not clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth. 

If your back pain is muscular, try a hot shower aimed right at it, as hot as you can get it.  That helps sometimes.  I also sometimes get relief from the drug store back massagers, just the small plastic handheld ones.  Cheap but effective for me a lot of the time.

Hi @mollyfin. I have a question, do you get low back pain when you are under stress or i'd like to call "in a anxious situation"? That just randomly occurs.

It's hard for me to say because I pretty much always have low back pain :/
