- Q: Since March 25th I have been in 4 Emergency Rooms because my pain was so bad i could not manage to get it under control. For two weeks now I've been having moments where my heart felt like it was beating really fast and being stabbed with an ice pick. My whole body tingles like it's being poked with pins. I also have some pain in the upper left section of my abdomen. It hurts especially after I've eaten something(about 30 minutes later meat, peanut butter or any protein).The pain in my stomach is so bad it causes my body to shake and I feel like I'm going to pass out. Sometimes I do.I just had an upper endoscopy on my stomach this afternoon. It was normal!! I had to go off all my medication in order to have it and had a terrible attack of pain earlier in the day. Yes, I went to the ER. I've been taking Lortab to control the pain in my stomach so I can eat. I have a CT scan scheduled later in the week and a test for my gallbladder soon after.I hope the doctors can find the cause before the pain attacks cause me to lose my marbles!
- A: A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that develops for no apparent reason and that triggers severe physical reactions. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.You may have only one or two panic attacks in your lifetime. But if you have panic attacks frequently, it could mean that you have panic disorder, a type of chronic anxiety disorder. Please see a doctor who understands this condition I feel so bad for you I am sure you are suffering and no one can find the cause. You need the medications that are prescribed for anxiety disorders, I can assure you, you will feel so much better and life will be bearable again Whatever caused you to begin to feel like this you must look back and deal with it as it is causing you so much stress. Please check with your dr. on any medical advice given. Good luck to you.
- Can a long period of stress cause multiple sicknesses?
- Q: I was in a 3 year reltionship with a guy whome i thought i loved. 2 years of the reltionship had me battling thoughts, crying, constantly worrying, ect. He was a HUGE liar and there were times where i was pretty down. well i left him this past february. I started dting another guy in about a week...i think it was because i needed that crutch to leave him. well we broke up after 2 weeks because he worked full time and was a cop in training so didnt have much free time. shortly after that i started talking to a guy i knew but not knew one on one. we hung out and hit it off. well that was at the begining of april. by april 19th i went to the hospital for trouble breathing, dizziness, and numbness. they said it was anxiety. well since then ive been in the hopistal 5 times, had blood work done and a CAT scan done. They found nothing wrong. I constantly deal with chronic neck pain that results in head aches, feelings of being shorted of breath, upper abdominal pain, back pain, dizziness, numbness, nausea,insomnia, light weight depression, and almost constant fear. But no docotr can find anything wrong...can this all be from being in a stressful relationship for too long? how can i fix this? with my new boyfriend, i am soo happy, he treats me like a princess. but being sick is really stealing from that. i lost my job in may because i couldnt handle working and i havent been able to work since then. i can hardly handle walking or standing for more then 10 minutes. im really weak. PLEASE someone help me.
- A: Absolutely, stress can in fact impact your physical health.Sorry to hear that he was a huge liar, that must have sucked. It apparently made a huge impact on your relationship and yourself. But you feel like your love life is a mess, you can't seem to to get anything straight just because of your first experience. I don't know what hospital you went to, but having dizziness and numbness are signs of panic attacks. It's not really what you think as totally freaking out in public or anything. When your panicking, you can hyperventilate which causes numbness to your arms, legs, etc. That's what it sounds like. Go to the doctors and thell them that. I know im not an expert, but im a training Paramedic, and we learn about this stuff. So the stress is probably not just putting stress on your brain, on your heart too, physically. I don't think it's your relationship though, you might want to consider talking to a social worker so you can find out why your having these problems and you can boost your health mentally and physically. The first step though, is to look at your lifestyle; what your eating, how much sleep you get, your excerise. So there might be multiple factors on why you feel so shitty, Go find them!
- anxiety symptoms or something more?
- Q: For the last 2-3 months (approximately) I have been having a lot of weird and random pain, mostly in my upper left region. I randomly will get chest pain, sometimes localized, sometimes all around. It will often radiate to my shoulders, arms, and neck .. more often on the left side. Also, I will get a lot of abdominal pain and discomfort under my ribs. I have been associating it to anxiety, due to events of the past year. I don't always feel anxious or stressed out, but I also know you can get pain/anxiety attacks out of the blue. The symptoms I have described will come and go throughout the day, sometimes last a few second, sometimes minutes, sometimes longer. Sometimes, also, the pain will catch me off guard and be so severe that it will cause me to become more anxious/nervous and there have been occasions where I have had to pull over when driving to just breath and/or rub my arm/shoulder/top of chest. Currently as I am typing this and throughout today, it is a burning and stabbing feeling. It is making me restless, cranky, and overall tired and irritable.I have had an ECG almost a year ago and a chest CT due to a blood clot in my lung and a CT of my abdomen a few months ago .. all came back okay.I am a 22 year old female and otherwise am healthy. I often worry that it might be something severe, but I, and others, have been contributing it to anxiety .. I guess it is just to the point where I am unsure anymore and it is becoming unbearable.I am just looking for some opinions/thoughts I suppose of what it could possibly be.
- A: You may need to start keeping a diary/journal. Log in what is happening right before these attacks.... what happens during the attack and what happens after the attack. Present this to your Dr. on your next visit and this will help him/her give you a better diagnoses.Best wishes!!
