I know it's been awhile since I posted. Just wanted to check in and see how everyone was doing. I have my endoscopy tomorrow for my GERD issues to determine if I actually do have it or not. Can't wait to get an answer on that.
It's been a rough couple of weeks for me. Last weekend I went through some personal stuff with my husband which we've since worked out. Then on Monday evening I started with such horrible vomitting and diarrhea that I was dehydrated in about
two hours. That set off the worst panic attach I've ever had and I made my husband call 911. They took me to the ER where I had to wait in the waiting room for 5 hours before I could even get to a bed and see a doctor. Was told it was anxiety and a stomach virus. I basically stayed home all week and am just now starting to feel somewhat normal again. The doctor did give me Lorazapam for my anxiety but now I need to find someone to follow up with. My regular doctor has left the practice and those that are left will not prescribe anxiety medications.
I had been doing better with my anxiety before the issue with my husband surfaced. My symptoms seemed to have lessen some but are now starting to creep back up on me. I've developed constant shortness of breath while I'm awake. I seem to be fine when I'm asleep and when I first wake up. My jaw is starting to hurt again I'm assuming from clenching, and I'm getting chest and left arm pains again. I'll be visiting the resource section again to look up some breathing exercises and see if they help.
Hope everyone else is having a symptom free day!
