Hello everyone, I’m a 31 year old female and have been suffering from severe anxiety and depression most of my life, but thought I had gotten to the point where I could at least control it. Well, I tested positive for Covid back in early July (re tested negative since), and have been having extreme anxiety issues again ever since. My entire gi tract is messed up, to the point where I went to the hospital twice in the past month. They’ve done ekgs, ct scans, and bloodwork, all of which came back normal. Everyone keeps telling me that I just have really bad acid reflux/GERD, which I’m taking otc medicine for, but I’m still feeling SO weird. My chest gets incredibly tight, my stomach hurts right under my ribs in the middle, and if I am presented with any stressful situation, they all hurt way worse. I’m trying to eat as much as I can, and all healthy foods, but I can only manage to eat some in fear that I’m going to have some horrific stomach flare up. I keep thinking I have a hernia, even though I really don’t think so because it would of shown, or think there’s something wrong with my heart. I tell myself over and over it’s just anxiety but it’s just not working. I also just don’t have the money to see a psychiatrist right now and get put back on medication. At this point I just feel lost and alone and want to know if there is anyone else out there having similar issues or if anyone can give me any advice. Thank you all in advance.
