Help with ongoing stomach pain

One week ago, possibly a bit more, I started to experience intense periods of sickness in the stomach, where I would suddenly go very pale and loose appetite. I wouldn't actually throw up, infact I wouldn't really do anything much, albiet the occasional bit of explosive bottom (but this wouldn't usually happen, infact occasionly I'm constipated). I thought it was nothing to worry about, because it's probably just a stomach bug. Now, it's still here and the pain is getting close to unbearable. I noticed a tinge of red in my stools today (yuck).
I also suffer from anxiety, so I'm probably blowing this way out of proportion, I just get a little worked up. If anyone could comment, that would be brilliant.

FYI, I eat healthy foods. I get 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, and I don't eat meat so it couldn't possibly be a meat releated issue.

Re: Help with ongoing stomach pain

Hi there...sorry to hear about your stomach pains. The anxiety probably has a lot to do with it. I have anxiety as well, and whenever it's been really bad, it has affected my stomach to the point of feeling queasy, no appetite, pains, loose bowels....not a lot of good stuff going on there! However, I would recommend seeing your doctor about the blood in your stools, especially with the pain worsening, just to be on the safe side. Do you take any anti-anxiety meds? If not, this may be a good thing to look into, to help get it under control. Hang in there, and I hope you're feeling better soon.
