Hi there,
Ever since my dad was diagnosed with cancer last year, I have had anxiety problems. (I have always been a pretty anxious person anyway). Sometimes my vision goes funny, I am always thinking I've got some form of cancer myself, for a while there my heart used to beat so fast that I thought I was dying, and I didn't eat for about a week because I was always feeling so anxious and nervous. I get ringing in my ears sometimes and it drives me crazy. I have lost weight and I have even thrown up because my nerves make me feel so nauseous. I didn't get my period for a couple of months and I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome in september based on high testosterone levels, so I am on the pill now. I had my first pap smear at that time aswell and they came back with slightly abnormal cells. These things tipped my over the edge and I became so anxious and worried all the time. My cells are back to normal now though. My dad died in february and since then my my bowel habits have changed and I've become even more worried about everything. My doc has put it all done to a little bowel sensitivity due to stress. I wake up every morning at the exact same time (without an alarm clock) and for some reason I have butterflies in my stomach and I feel really nervous. If I press on my stomach it hurts (kind of like gas pain), then I go to the toilet and my bowel motions are almost like diarrhea, then once I've finished, the butterflies are gone and I feel better. I sometimes get a bad crampy pain while I'm eating as though something is continuously gripping and releasing my stomach, then it goes away. I even convinced myself that I can feel a lump in my bowels and it hurts, but the doc says there is nothing there. I've been taking metamucil for a few days now, so it's not runny anymore, but it's still pretty lumpy (sorry, pretty gross I know) and I still wake up and go like clockwork every morning. Any one else experience any thing like this?? I am under a lot of stress...I am planning my wedding in July and trying to take care of my mum who is having a really hard time with my dad's death. I just need some reassurance. Thanks
