Hey Ronee and welcome to the forum. I have a chronic health issue myself and developed anxiety because of it too. Mine is a gastrointestinal disease so of course my anxiety will effect my gi tract. i.e Nausea, diarrhea etc. Sounds like your anxiety has manefested in the area where your illness is. Thru therapy and the occasional use of Xanax I am now able to stop it in its tracks. Hope that helps some.
