Re: Anxiety w/ Joint or Muscle issues?

Hi dahlstrom 34,

I was diagnosed with gastritis, ulcers and other stomach problems, first. Then came the anxiety. And then came arthritis (or fibromyalgia). I do know that the stomach problems and anxiety are closely related. They feed off of each other. I do not know about the arthritis?! I am on meds, for all three illnesses. I take Lexapro for my anxiety.

Have you been to a rheumatologist yet? They diagnose muscle and bone stiffness, aches and pains.

Good Luck to you. Wannabe
