I'm 39 years old 5foot6 180 pounds, I lift weights and keep in shape. I suffered from anxiety and panic disorder, I took paxil cr.At one point in my life i got off the anxiety pills. But 2 years later i started getting stomach problems like cramps at first it was mild now its frequent and it put me in a sort of panic.So 4 years later after a colonoscopy and a camera down to the stomach came back negative.The blood test came back negative and the stool culture came back negative,the ultasound came back negative and the x-ray was negative.They i'm healthy and no blood in stool.But i still have this pain. I got see a phychiatrist and social worker,I take effexor xr,with clorazapane and amitrypiline.I do cognitive restructering and i meditate and try to eat well.I don't know if this could be i.b.s or psychosomatic symptom i just don't know what to do. I feel tired alot but look healthy but i still have this pain.
Could be anxiety I know anxiety gives me stomach pain also could be the meds I know before I was diagnosed with anxiety I went to the e.r. with stomach pain and the doc treated me for giardia (without a stool sample, boy was I stupid) Anyway the meds made me way worse on the stomach pain so you might want to check the side effects of what your taking.
I had horrible stomach cramps due to anxiety and stress, but i didnt know that at first. I felt like i was dieing and that my stomach had a burning hole in it and gas bubbles were coming out into my stomach (I could even feel the gas bubbles! It was crazy). Fortunatly though, my own diagnosis wasn't exactly possible considering i keep in shape like you do and im young, NO reason at all for stomach problems-except anxiety. So i went to the doctor ive had forever, great guy- very old and experienced, and he laughed and told me it was stress. So i stopped worrying about it and it faded away. I feel it sometimes, but it just felt like severe indigestion or a stomach ulcer or something. Sound like yours? Getting opinions from different doctors helps. Dont ever forget though, that enough stress and anxiety can cause anything. If you worry about your stomach ache- then your stomach ache will probably continue. Anxiety disorders make this stuff worse. Dont listen to everything i say though because im not a doctor,i just know from myself, my anxiety and personal experience. Hope i helped. Stomach aches can be the worst.
