Help, please! I'm driving myself crazy!
For the last couple of days I've been getting these weird feelings in my stomach. They're like these little pinching type feelings. They seem to happen all over my stomach and it's like almost like a stinging feeling and lasts for a second, if that. They don't hurt too much. It feels like an ant is biting me there or something.
I've also been getting these little fluttery/twitchy feelings all over my stomach. I've noticed the twitchy feeling in other areas of my body, but I especially pay attention to it in my stomach. I also sometimes get this pulsing feeling along with the stinging feeling. My stomach has been tight and uncomfortable on and off for the last week or two. I've also had an occassional dull backache. I've also had this bloated feeling in my stomach which makes me feel like there is something in my stomach.
Now, I've been paying too much attention to these sensations and freaking myself out, I know. My anxiety has worsened over the last couple days because of this. The pulsing feeling has me automatically thinking, "Aneurysm!" and I've totally scared myself over that. Earlier today, I had a slight nosebleed and freaked out over it sending myself into a panic attack and freaking out more! I started crying and went into a full-blown attack. I hate this cycle.
I'm a 19 year old female considered to be in fairly good health, besides this anxiety/panic and the symptoms associated with it. Is this feeling anxiety/stressed related? Is it really just in my head like everyone tells me? I hate that my mind can make me feel this bad. Anyway, I guess I just need someone to ease my mind a little. I've freaked myself out with the thought of aneurysms and clots and the like. I'm scheduling an appt with the doc next week and I plan to bring it up then. I just hope it isn't something like gas pains or anything. Then I'll feel really silly!
