I am worried sick! I've caught a stomach virus 2.5 weeks ago but has since recovered.
The onset was giddy spell, vomitting and diarrhoea for a day.
I was given 2 days medical leave. Post that, I have lost my appetite and have no interest
with any of my food, little energy and mild stomach cramps still lingers.
It's been 2 weeks now and I have re-visited the doctor who claimed there
are mild spasm in my stomach and have me some pills to curb
Bloatedness and cramp. However, each time I finished a small meals now and
then I feel extremely full. For the past two days, I have discomfort of reflux and nausea
before I sleep and when I woke up in the morning.
I feel racing heart beats as well and some times breathless like I'm
getting a panic attack! I have suffered from anxiety disorder 6 years ago
and am wondering if it is post syndrome from stomach flue or a relapse from
panic attack! This has worry me a lot and my energy seems drained trying to
calm myself down or what's happening next.
I'm gtg for a trip next Friday and am thinking if I should back off as I'm
afraid if I'm in Thailand and require medical attention. I'm worries if this
is serious and I will die when any of the symptoms ( reflux or panic attacks)
Sounds like maybe your stomach virus has maybe kicked your anxiety symptoms back up. I've deal with anxiety for over 40 years, so I know what it is like---especially when it comes to medical things---and you don't know what is going on.
Neither reflux or a panic attack will kill you. See if you can get to your doctor right away and get some clonazepam or xanax to take so you can enjoy your trip and deal with the anxiety.
