Re: Please Help!!!-i Get Really Bad Butterflies In My Stomach

Hi Melh,
I guess I can't be much help but what is Propranolol? I always have Butterflies in my stomach, like I'm nervous all the time.
I get so confused about Anxiety disorder because my brother has it and it seems more like people feel like their having a heart attack, can't breathe, stuff like that. Mine is more mental. I feel anxious, nervous and scared all the time. I think that is why my stomach is always like this. I wish I knew how some people were calm all the time. I try to take some deep breadth's but it only helps a little bit. I can't get rid of it. I take 40 mg's Lexapro and 4 2 mg's of Xanax a day which is a lot. Maybe I should try Klonapin or something else. I hope you feel better. I really hate that feeling all the time!!

I have that feeling most of the time too. Sometimes I can pin point what triggered it, but sometimes I can't. It is so annoying! I wish I knew what helps, mainly the only think that helps a little bit is talking it out with someone, taking a walk, or try to get distracted in a good book or phone call

I have exactly the same thing as Kimwe. i also see that many people on this board have physical symptoms like breathing or heart palpitations, but I have exactly what Kimwe described. It's a feeling of fear/dread, and I don't know why. I've been trying different meds for 2 months now. They work for a little while & then they stop working. I switced from xanax to klonopin. now i'm getting the stomach feeling & the fear again. I feel like nothing will ever help me
