Are there any men or women (non-pregnancy related) who have dealt with or deals with morning nausea/diarrhea/anxiety combo? I went through mega-hardcore stress during this summer and also developed a gigantic abscess on my tooth/gum. I was prescribed a week's worth of antibiotics, the strongest form (1000 mg). It helped. A week after discontinuing the ab-s, I started to have on and off bowel movements. One day poop, next day nothing, then poop the day after...on and off. It was already long after that I started taking a probiotic, and it made zero difference. All my life I had a stomach and bowel made of iron and I never really felt much nausea before, but this time I was driving my car and started to feel discomfort. I unzipped my trousers to get more comfortable, and that helped a little bit, but the nausea started to worsen and I ended up having a panic attack in the midst of driving with a passenger onboard. Fast forward three months, now I'm dealing with regular panic attacks, nausea and can't leave the house in the daylight. Each time I wake up in the morning I have this sense of having to poop, but I can tell that it is diarrhea-ish, sort of "pooping yourself from anxiety" kind of deal. It usually happens when my sugar is below 8. The lower it is, the sicker I feel (I don't have this problem keeping my sugar lower later in the day). After diarrhea my nausea would increase and found out that my sugar can easily drop by 2 in less than 15 minutes, so whenever I get up and feel the bowel movement coming I pop dextrose pill and have orange juice handy. This definitely helps with the reflux-nausea-like sensation afterwards, but doesn't resolve it. It slowly resolves on its own after pacing back and forth for an hour and eating lunch. If I stop moving or sit down, then sickness worsens. My diabetic doc did lab tests a month ago, and the only thing that sticks out is slightly elevated creatinine. That makes sense because of the summer stress of irregular sleep cycles and keeping sugar high. Now my sugars are so much better and my sleep has been improved, but the nausea stays. Long story short: Things that cause/worsens the nausea-anxiety combo: - waking up with glucose less than 8-9 - anxiety, stress, fear, worry - sense of having to poop - drinking water Things that don't help: - trying to ignore it and distract myself - trying to calm myself with positive thoughts Things that slightly help: - benzodiazepine - eating banana - pacing up and down - keeping sugar above 8 & sipping on OJ & dextrose pill I don't want to sound like a big baby, but this has definitely brought me to my knees and I'm desperate for help. I went to the psychiatrist and he prescribed benzos and SSRI. The former helps a little bit, but I don't want to get addicted to them. The latter might make the nausea worse or WORSE; not help at all, and it being my last option, I'm afraid of having to face that this could be cancer or something or that I'll be dependent on benzos for the rest of my life.
