I am going insane
« on: June 25, 2014, 12:04:06 AM »
Hello everyone. Just let me say this: I was diagnosed with gastritis about a week or two ago and I know there is nothing wrong besides that. I can still walk, run, eat and all that normal stuff. But I don't understand why it makes me so anxious. I feel like there is something more than the gastritis. In fact I know what it is I know it's the anxiety and the gastritis combined giving me stomach pains. But I don't know for sure and maybe some of you who have gastritis could help me out here? The pain isn't severe it's just uncomfortable. I get stomach aches when I'm anxious and I don't know if it is a combination of both for sure. Has this happened to those of you with gastritis? I went swimming in my backyard with no pain but I think since I'm scared to eat now because it might worsen it I got the pain when I ate. Do you think that's the reason? I keep thinking there's more than that but with anxiety you know how that is. Please someone help and tell me how to stop thinking so much.

Redcoat, I haven't been diagnosed with gastritis, but I have had dull stomach pain and nausea for a month now.  I am afraid to eat anything because I don't want it to get worse.  I have stomach pain, then my nausea kicks into high gear which causes more stomach pain.  It's a vicious cycle.  I'm trying to get into a gastro doc now.  I wish I had more advice for you.  This feels like a minute to minute battle to stay sane.  Hang in there.
