Stomach cramps with anxiety

Cramping is a frequent symptom for me. Within the past 6 months it's gotten worse - I'm doubled over in pain at least twice a week. I can't see my doctor because I don't have insurance right now.

The things that cause my anxiety could be resolved but they never will be. One thing is my neighbors (apartment) cook the worst smelling food almost every night. I get very sick from it and I think I've damaged my stomach from all the vomiting I've done. I've complained multiple times to the landlord, who put up a sign in the common area to be considerate of cooking, but that obviously did nothing. They don't know the first thing about cooking - they BURN everything from onions, garlic, fish... The whole building stinks but only 1 other tenant has complained.

I hate everyone telling me "they have a right to cook" but I don't have a right to live peacefully in this apartment? These people have a right to infiltrate my personal space and cause all my personal belongings to stink?! I'm not allowed to have a clean smelling apartment because of them?!

This all causes me extreme anxiety - I obsess over the dreaded thought of having to smell their nasty food every night. My stomach gets in knots over the unfairness and injustice. I want to scream because I feel completely out of control of my life - I cannot even do something simple like wear perfume when I go out because the food smell is so overwhelming. People have told me how I smell like food. I don't even cook. These neighbors have literal control on my life.

Of course none of this can be proven in court - you can't prove smells or prove the amount of times I've vomited. I hate this. I hate my life because of this. My chest feels tight and sometimes my vision goes blurry.

I don't know what to do. I can't move - I don't have money. Never will either, I'll probably always be stuck in apartments

That’s not anxiety that’s problem with neighbours and lack of job
