    Constant anxiety after being sick...

    Hi..I had the horrible stomach flu and ended up in the hospital due to dehydration. I take 20 mgs of lexapro daily for anxiety. I am a hypochondriac and I'm always afraid I'm dying of every disease. So you can imagine how hard it was for me to go into the hospital! Since then, my daily fears are back and I feel like they are suffocating me. Does anyone think that my med levels could be off due to the dehydration? I was feeling fine prior to this stomach bug! I can't go thru this again... I just can't!

    Hi, there.

    My anxiety threshold is definitely gone after I am sick and it takes a while to build back up again to where I am not anxious on a regular basis. What you had is no fun and even someone without any prior anxiety would probably feel anxious about being that sick!

    Take care of yourself!
