I have a huge fear of being sick and any sort of stomach pain I get I associate with being sick. This just sets off a vicious circle of worrying about the pain which causes more pain etc etc.
Does anyone know of any medication to help reduce the pains or just settle the stomach?
If you go see the Dr I wouldn't phrase it like you just did. There are little they can do for stomach aches that isn't OTC unless they recognize that as a symptom of anxiety. Your stomach aches probably start with anxiety. That's how I am. Id start by explaining that you suffer from anxiety which causes stomach aches and other issues. Ive never has success from a OTC stomach ache medicine when its caused by anxiety. Its a different story if I have a stomach ache from bad food or too much food or just being sick.
Nunwithgun Fantastic answer, Aaron you could even write down what you have to us because this way you won't get scared at the doctor's office. Just give the doctor the note but I would bet a huge amount of us on this site all could write what you have. And it always starts out one way or another. But the doctor should be able to get you something to help you and be patient sometimes it takes more than one guess to the doctor there are so many medications and we all react differently to many of them. But the sooner you get in the sooner you should get some relief. Best of luck and know we are all here for you if you have other question.
Anxiety has led to irritable bowel symptoms (IBS). I have used bentylol & it has helped. Bentylol was by prescription but now seems to be available from pharmacist.
