Does anyone else get really bad stomach problems during stressful times (finals, breakups, etc)? I get really bad acid reflux, a burning stomach sensations, fatigue, indigestion, and gas. I have taken omeprazole which helps a bit, but I am looking for a better solution.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Esophagitis-Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
I have GERD and I just started taking Pepsid and it really seems to help. I do have a couple times where I burp acid but not as much
I take pantrozole everyday and celexa an anxiety pill because I get Gerds acidy from stress it helps with burning in chest and throat 90% of the time.
during school, i usually end up taking pepcid every night before bed or i can’t sleep… (i have suspected GERD)
My stomach acid is so strong that it tarnished a steel sink. So I feel you on when it gets really bad. I just tend to throw up when I'm too anxious
For my gerd I take Dexalant. It’s a prescription med that’s a bit stronger than omeprazole. I also take famoditine, Carafate, and for nausea I take ondancetron and reglan. Hope you can talk to a gastroenterologist about your stomach soon. I was on omeprazole for years but my dose kept going up and my symptoms kept getting worse. So the Dexalant helps a lot.
I have Crohn’s but my biggest, #1 stomach issues trigger is any type of anxiety - good and bad excitement. I’ll immediately get nauseous and/or make more frequent trips to the restroom. I’ve always been this way, not sure how to turn it off😅
Yed i get IBS real bad
When my mom passed a few years ago, I had went through a few stress induced anxiety attacks because I was going through a lot of change in my life. My chest got tight and I felt lift I couldn't breathe.
