I spoke to my doctor last week who suggested I have a gastroscopy.
I had a letter today with a date for next week and now I'm terrified.
I suffer with health anxiety and I have regular panic attacks and I'm finding the prospect of not only the procedure but also what may be found too much.
Lansoprasole definitely helped with heartburn symptoms but made me incredibly dizzy.
I now am left with a feeling of fullness in my upper abdo, just under sternum after eating and my throat feels tight. I know this can be linked with anxiety so am trying to stay calm.
I know somethings off as I've been waking every night between 3-4am having feelings of panic and racing heart which I haven't had for a while now.
I'm just very nervous now about
the whole thing and quite tempted to cancel
