sad  i just recently went to the doctors and he gave me a full lookover because i had been hving alot of different symptoms like constipation, pain in the heart area which didnt happen often,sleep trouble, gas, and constant urge to go to the bathroom and going to the bathroom more. i was very nervous b4 that because i felt liek there was something moving in my stomch and it was scary the heck out of me. as soon as my mom took me to the doctors all the symptoms stopped so im guessing that they all had to do with anxiety. but now i have these weird kicking sensations in my chest, my back and abdomen. it doesn't do it very often and it stops when i move around and when i go to sleep at night but when im sitting down or laying down watching tv it starts again and it really scares me. i have been getting regaular periods and i feel normal except for that one thing and sometimes i have incontinence but i dono if its urine leaking or watery discharge because its around the beginning of my cycle now. im not sexually active at all but it scare the livig daylight out of me. it never happed to me b4 but i am only 14 and maybe my body is just changing. anyone here who is experiencing the same thing. sad

Hi mctbee, Welcome to Healing Well :-)

I can understand your fear when something starts happening that hasn't happened before. I can only guess as to what is causing your problems as I'm not a doctor but the best thing to do is explain to your doctor exactly what you explained here.

Here is my guess, the kicking sensations that you are feeling in your chest and back is possibly muscle spasms. I get muscle twitching in my back a lot lately and the best way to describe it is like a fluttering. Feels very strange especially when it hits my ribs. Fluttering in your abdomen could be your normal digestion as your intestines contract it will cause movement feelings. If your bathroom habits changed with anxiety, it sounds very much like IBS. IBS and anxiety will sometimes go together one making the other worse. I hope you can get back to the doctor sometime and let them know what it feels like so at least they can give you a complete work up and maybe relax some of your fears.

The fluttering feelings, and feeling like something is moving around in you could also simply be gas.  There are a lot of things that can cause excess gas, including beans and raw veggies (and some cooked, especially al dente).  You may be developing a lactose inolerance; try cutting out all dairy products to see if that helps with both the gas and the constipation.  Also, if these feelings, especially the constipation, are timed to coincide with your cycle, that may be the sole cause of the problem; a lot of women have bowel problems and other weird digestive problems when they get their periods.  You are still young, so you may grow out of this.  If these problems definitely seem connected with your period, and they get worse, or don't go away in a year or two, then you may want to see about trying birth control.  Sometimes, when women have really heavy periods or a lot of period-related problems, birth control pills can help them balance out to where they are more normal. 
Also, do you ever eat anything that's sugar-free or reduced-sugar, such as diet/diabetic candies, ice-cream or even no-sugar gum or mints?  All of those products contain sugar alcohols and sugar alcohols give a lot of people gas, and frequently diarrhea too.  But if you are only chewing sugar-free gum or mints, you'd probably only be getting enough sugar alcohols to give you gas.  If I ever have any, I get a very horrible fluttering sensation in my guts, like I have a live bird trapped in there.  Even if they aren't the root cause of your problem, they will make whatever bowel problems you have worse, so never consume them.
