Hey everyone...Using all of my resources to cure this newly diagnosed anxiety problem of mine. I am 32 years old and probably for the past 2-3 years I have suffered from anxiety. I have a great life, great boyfriend, great job, great car, no bills too tough, and Ive been working on my MBA for the past 6 months. For the past year of my life.....Everyday I wake up with diarrhea and I can go 4-5 times a day. Not to mention the horrible hemmoroids that come along from going too much. UGGGGHHHH! Along with the diarrhea, when I get nervous or anxious about anything...I start throwing up uncontrollably and it always ruins everything (I Mean Everything) that I do or plan to do. When I get up in the am to go to work I throw up and have diarrhea, oh and the hot flashes are rediculus!!!! BUT I LOVE MY JOB!!! I have worked there for 12 years!!! I was headed to a concert over the summer with my friend, and after we ate dinner, I started throwing up constantly....We had to turn around and come home. I go to my good friends house to hang out and in the middle of a conversation after being there for 45 minutes, sitting on the couch totally relaxed, I got really hot, my stomach started to turn, and I had to run to the bathroom because I was totally throwing up. I made up an excuse and told her it must have been something I ate earlier, went home, and felt fine. Weeks later however, on another visit it happend AGAIN......So I had to break it down and tell her I am suffering from anxiety. Ive met with my doctor about this 5 times! SHe had me on Lexapro a low dose to start with a low dose of ativan for attacks, niether of them helped me. 2 months later, she upped both does of the lexapro and ativan, and while the ativan works great, the lexapro makes me sweat like crazy, so she then switched me to zoloft. Ive been on it for 2 months now, but I am not so sure its working...I still get nervous and anxious over everything I do, its keeping me home. Ive gone down part time at my job, because I have called in or gone home too many times sick its embarassing. Ive got it down to a science, the night before I go to work, I pop an ativan, and then another one when I wake up in the morning....The throwing up has seemed to fade some, but the diarrhea is still there and its totally uncontrollable..The ativan does not help the diarreah. I eat sooooo good. Its just my nerves! Any advice would help! Thanks for reading!
