Hi, not exactly sure what’s caused it but my anxiety has been at a constant high for a week straight now. I keep getting sharp pains in my upper middle, upper left and mid left abdomen as well as a lot of excess gas. I get random limb and joint pains that come for a couple seconds and then go. I’ve felt nauseous pretty much the whole time, and I feel like I’ve got a bubble stuck in my throat and no matter how many times I cough or clear my throat it won’t go. I also get headaches sometimes. Anyone else with stress and anxiety experience this? I’ve experienced all of these symptoms individually during an anxiety attack or panic attack but never all together over a prolonged period of time. Is it just stress/anxiety or is it something more? Like a cold or flu etc? Please help I have severe health anxiety and I’m very scared haha 😅😭

      I've experienced it all. I believe anxiety does a lot to the body. Sad that it's uncontrollable at times.

      i've felt a lot of what you say you're experiencing too. i also struggle with health anxiety and the extreme fear of vomit. anxiety does fuck up a lot of body symptoms, more than anything, it messes with the gut. the main thing you could do is learn to cope and relax and find videos on youtube on how to combat health anxiety. get a journal and answer some questions about yourself, dig deep!! stay safe, hope all goes well with you

      Honestly it could just be anxiety and stress. I've had periods of time where I feel overly anxious for a week or two and get similar symptoms to what youre describing. I also have pretty bad health anxiety, so I get that you're scared. But if you have a doctor, you could alwaysbcall them tomorrow and ask to speak to a nurse. I've done that several times in order to have peace of mind I hope you're feeling better and you can find a way to not feel so anxious 🧡

        @carter._.16 thank you so much, it’s good to know that I’m not the only one that’s experienced it. I would love to speak to a nurse but my doctors surgery is awful, they won’t talk to you over the phone and you have to make an appointment online to talk to anyone. I might make an appointment if it doesn’t die down 💛

Some people with anxiety have reported experiencing symptoms like abdominal pain, excess gas, nausea, and headaches. However, it's essential to consult a medical professional to determine if these symptoms are solely due to anxiety or if there's an underlying issue that needs to be addressed.
