i went to the dr found out i had 2ulcer in my stomach when i eat i get a weird felling and then my anxiety kicks in my legs get a numb feeling in them and i start feeling bad all over does this sound like anxiety. does anyone else fell like this?
Yes, it sounds like anxiety. What is your doctors plan to deal with your ulcers?
I am most certainly not a gastroenterologist, but you should be on a special diet and possibly some medications. If you don't have a follow up appointment with him to discuss treatment, I'd make one. And I would also bring up your anxiety issues. Anxiety and ulcers, not a good mix.
If the medication the doc put you does not help you significantly, not only with your ulcers, but with the other issues, please do not wait 6 months to see him again.
The "mind/body" connection has been known for centuries and you are so right.........our minds are incredibly powerful and can play many tricks on us!
I hope you decide to get proactive and do some research on ulcers, their causes and the many things we can do to heal them. Visit sites like the Mayo or Cleaveland Clinics for authorative information and advice. I am not directing my next statement simply at you........it applies to virtually all of us. When we have a medical problem, our normal solution is go to our doctor, get a pill and then forget about it. We take no responsibility in our own wellness. It's the American way! Better living through chemistry.
I wish you relief from the pain and anxiety.
