Just got over a very intense bout of the stomach flu, today marks two weeks since I got sick. Thankfully most of the physical symptoms have abated. My appetite is still off and on but is better overall. I've read lots about the connection between gut-brain health, but I'm hoping to get some feedback from you guys. This past week as I was slowly getting better my anxiety totally ramped up, with almost daily panic attacks. I haven't had this in many years and I take citalopram 30mg daily. Does anyone know or can relate to an increase in anxiety following illness? Any input is much appreciated!!!
