Anxiety Causing IBS or Ulcer?
I've been taking Celexa for depression for the past 4 years. I was taking 20mg for awhile but have been taking 10mg for the past year. For the past 3 months I noticed that I seem to get a rush in my stomach sort of like a flutter when Iím excited about things or stomach aches when Iím worried or nervous. I also have bad stomach pains usually a little while after eating that can last for hours sometimes severe gas and bloating, constipation, with thin stools or mucus and undigested food in the stool. I eat yogurt everyday with no problems, but peanut butter I believe is causing an upset stomach.
The doctor gave me a prescription for Prevacid to help with acid in the stomach, I've been taking for 2 weeks so far. Iím just not sure whatís causing what. Is my anxiety or stress causing an ulcer thatís causing stomach pains or what?
Probably writing about what I think is causing problems causes problems.
