What were you on before? I think what you are experiencing with all your stress is anticipatory anxiety. Constantly worrying about the what if's. Before I knew about anticipatory anxiety (thanks Kitt) I use to always be nauseous and have bad diarrhea, and couldnt eat a thing at the first hint of stress. I would cause an IBS type attack and knock me down for at least 3-4 days. Now thru therapy and the occasional use of Xanax I have been able to stop it in tracks if I take the medication at the first hint. I have not had one of those bad 3-4 days in about 2 years now. I only use my Xanax now about 1-3 times a month. If you will look at my signature you will see that I have alot chronic health issues and this constant stress would just kick my butt, because it triggered these episodes. Ask your doc for something fast acting like Xanax or Klonopin to take on those bad days. Good luck!
