Hi every one!
I'm on a zoloft since last year , I had been very well except few moments that have abdominal discomfort( bowel cramps,gas,increase bowel sound), with those symptoms I  have a feeling of some thing kicking my bowels inside my abdomin specially in the stomach region everynight when I'm in asleep, specially at the morning, dose it a palpitation?? I'm checking my pulse rate allways with it , heart rate is normal 60-75 , no feeling of banging in my chest, Had checked heart every thing was normal, had a gastroscopy normal.I'm so curious about this and its annoying me too much , can some one help me and explain that for me plz

It could be colon spasms. I had a lot of gut problems during my really bad anxiety (similar to yours). A lot of it was my body's overreaction to the anxiety. It's not made to operate in panic mode for long periods of time, so parts of your body will start operating abnormally - like a gasoline engine that needs to be tuned.

When I got the panic under control, the gut problems cleared up as well.

Sounds like you've done due diligence on the physical front. So if your body is healthy - that leaves your brain/mind. You mention that it happens when you're asleep - is that what you meant to say? Because if you're asleep, but "feeling" something...that sounds a lot like a dream.

I don't mean to trivialize your troubles...just thinking out loud.
1. Are you generally sleeping well?
2. Do you still have panic attacks?
3. What dosage of Zoloft are you currently on?

I'm on 50 mg zoloft , sleeping well , some time a week attack of panic. Could colon spasm act like a palpitation in the abdomin?
