Just stress or more?
« on: August 27, 2014, 08:11:51 PM »
I've been having a very stressful few weeks -- work, family, etc.  Also last week I had some kind of stomach bug and was eating little for a few days.  It seems that since last week, I'm a size skinnier...I can tell from the notches on my belt.  Also this week (which is very stressful at work) I'm feeling tired, tense, sometimes lightheaded.  I wake up tired.  And I've had a funny feeling in my stomach too.  Not like pain or real discomfort.  But as if someone is gripping my insides.  Sort of like muscle tension inside, if that makes sense?  Please let me know if you've ever felt something like that... Can all these feeling be stress and anxiety related?  I'm finding myself in a very bad cycle of anxiety.

Nobody with similar experiences?  I'm especially concerned about the weird tightening inside.  Can't remember having this sensation before.

Strange sensations are the hallmark of anxiety.

When my HA ramps up, I'm nauseous all day- even if I haven't eaten.

I have muscle tension in my stomach 24/7. Try soaking in a hot tub, it helps.

I'm a very experienced HA sufferer... And stress is something I do for a living.  But this particular sensation is new even to me.

Same thing today.  Really scared it's something bad... Stomach feels all funny.  Squeezed...like an ongoing light spasm.

Could this all be muscle related?  I've been feeling a lot of tension in my back too.  In fact, thew whole torso is achy and tense.  Especially in the mornings when I wake up and late afternoons.  I've taken muscle relaxants but they don't help much.

Something new everyday.  Now the lower part of my stomach is aching... Maybe it's just gas.  But it's making me so nervous.  It's so hard to live with all the worries and fears.  As if life wasn't complicated enough!!
