Ok let me start out by saying that I'm a normal 24 year old woman that works fulltime mon thru Friday. My anxiety started just recently when me and my girlfriend for 3 years just moved in to our first house together. I don't know what it is but ever since we moved here I can't leave the house without having to use the restroom. I mean its like when I have to go I better go cuz it hurts so bad. I mean even when I'm in the car we have to pull over at a store or something just so I can use the bathroom. Its getting so embarrassing now cuz my gf is constantly saying that this is all in my head. I just need this to go away ..... I mean I get sweaty palms and my heart beats fast. Ugh please tell me how I can get rid of this because its sooo uncomfortable. I can't even go to the drs cuz I don't have any medical insurance. So please HELP! Is there anything I can buy in the stores???

Hello and Welcome. The first thing I would advise would be for you to see your physician to rule out any medical problems re your issues. Your bowel problem may be causing your anxiety.

Also you may want to keep a food diary for a bit to see if any certain foods are triggering problem.

I would ask your friend to support you as you are trying to sort this all out.

We are here to support you so please know we care.

Kindly,

Kitt

Thanks Kitt!!!
 My only problem about your reply was that I dont have any insurance so i dont have a primary phisician. Ugh why does this stuff happen?? I mean this whole thing with me and my gf is getting out of control .... it's like she gets fustrated with me when it's not my fault. Is there something I can buy over the counter or something???
 
Thanks Again! -Jas

I am sorry but I cannot recommend any products OTC. Perhaps if you went toa Pharmacy and talked with a pharmacist they may have a suggestion for you.

Also you may check out our resources link at the top of this page and read ideas on how to decrease your anxiety.

Perhaps someone will have a better idea for you.

Kindly,

Kitt

I totally sympathize with you. Moving is always a big change, even if you move with someone you love. My anxiety had been gone for almost 2 years adn came back full force once we moved into our new place (fixer-upper, uggh).

Long hot baths used to make me feel better at night before bed, adn herbal teas (esp ones with relaxing herbs in them) would help also. I also always carry Immodium ad with me everywhere I go.

I wish you the best of luck and let us know how it goes =)

Those are how my anxiety attacks were. When you have an onset try and put something cold on the back of you neck and concentrate on your breathing. Take slow deep breaths and focus on your breathing rather than the attack.

Armani,

I respectfully disagree with your advise to the members to go on a 3 day food fast as this is a well known touted method to lose weight quickly.

As we have members with many health issues from Crohn's Disease to Diabetes, encouraging members to fast is unsafe IMHO.

Kitt-
I agree 100%. Some people just can't tolerate that kind of diet and to offer such advice seems dangerous to me also.

I too totally concur with Kitt n Bill
i ended up in hospital on life support from not eating nor drinking.....it is very dangerous to go on fasts ..total ones..for any period of time imho
IF you can have a hot milk at night it naturally soothes me personally
i use a bit of cinnamon on top
when heated the milk has ingredient that activates n calms me
just my opinion n thought
