Anyone have this? It doesn't seem to respond to meditation, exercise or yoga. I have to take trileptal and klonopin. It didn't happen when I went on zyprexa but I got off cause I packed on 30 pounds. I'm not worried about anything in my head. It's my lower torso...

I get chest pains from anxiety and have to take klonipin.
Deep breathing makes me feel better but it doesn't take the
pain away. I had intense anxiety yesterday and this happened
but 2 klonipins later I was o.k.

My husband was in the hospital for 3 weeks with abdominal pains and they
gave him protonix....he's already on klonipin too. They told him
not to consume anything acidic like coffee, tomatoes, hard candy, alcohol,
orange juice and that cigarrettes can cause stomach trouble too.

He stopped all this and has had no more pain. We both have anxiety/panic and BP.

Hi Ellen,
It sounds a lot like stress from anxiety. Doing stretches, deep breathing, and keeping yourself busy helped me a lot to get my mind of the stress. Staying busy is key, it keeps your mind off the matter at hand and allows your mind to concentrate elsewhere. My wife's doctor told her as well to keep herself busy and it will help with the stress (she is bipolar II).

A question for you Ellen:
As i mentioned above, my wife is Bipolar II as I noticed in your signature you are as well. I see you take trileptal, her DR is thinking about putting her on that. Could you give me any feedback as to how that has worked for you? Thank you so much.

Yes, Trileptal is a mixed back. Because I won't go on Geodon or Xyprexa (which caused severe weight gain), she has me popping trileptal and klonopin.

I take two 300s during the day when I feel anxious. Then for sleeping I take 800 and 25 mg. of trazadone. It will only produce six hours of sleep.

Occasionally I'm taking klonopin.

I don't consider this regime a solution, just a bandaid. Triileptal is fairly safe though with no side effects that I can speak of. It's short acting thought.

redlightening and needhelp32 I appreciate your advice. sounds like I'm not alone, but in the same boat with others.

I just had some Ulcerative colitis bleeding last and am hoping its just hemmorroids. UC and stress -- one leads to another
