hi all:

its been a while since i post here, the reason is that i have been doing well for the past few months. But earlier today at work i had this feeling of unease, my eyes became heavy, i felt trembly and weak, and at one point like i wanted to cry. My entire body feels foreign and strange, has this ever happened to anyone? it has really shaken me up, cause its the first time in years that i felt like that. as i type the feeling is still with me. Oh, and another thing i cant seem to stop burping and my stomach is rumbling, i have acid reflux so am not sure if its acting up and thats contributing to these feelings.

I am greatful for any response, its really appreciated.
wishing everyone an anxiety free weekend

Hi BL and welcome back!

That is often exactly how my anxiety manifests itself. Upset stomach, with a heavy feeling in my head, like I must lie down. My body often feels foreign to me...and just 'off'...can't fully define it, but yes, your post rang many bells for me. smile

It is funny, as individual as we all are...we also have such similar anxiety symptoms!

It is especially hard having it come back after such a great reprieve...

...however the silver lining is that if you had it managed so well before, you can do so again. This is just a detour along the journey.

Practice your coping skills, and you'll be back on track soon. smile

Thanks for the reply and the words of encouragement, it
Is really scary after so long, I had a very rough day at
Work today, but am trying my best to be positive and
To use my coping skills. Since the burping has eased
The feeling is not so strong, so I know its due
To my acid reflux as well.

Once again thanks,
