Been experiencing pain in abdomen and rib cage. Why was I weak and woozy?

I have been experiencing pain all over especially around my abdomen and the bottom of my rib cage on both sides. I have been overly emotional, always hungry, and always tired and weak. I can barely walk around for a few seconds without feeling very weak and woozy. Recently it has been very hard to sleep. Now I am very shaky. Tenderness around nipples, stomach , and arms. Burning and swelling sensation at the back of neck and top of back spreading to shoulders. Warm sensation in middle of top abdomen.

We understand your concerns

I went through your concerns. I suggest you have nothing to worry except for your anxiety. You definity have anxiety disorder. The symptoms you hve given here corresponds to anxiety disorder.

Anxiety induces acid reflux and gas inside your stomack is the reason for the pain around stomach and below rib cage, rather diaphragm area. Feeliong of tiredness is also due to anxiety because anxiety is known to impair physical activities. Sleepiness, shakiness, tenderness etc are also anxiety outcome because you are much more aware about the body than earlier. You are worrying tht you have some serious problems. This anxiety disorder is called hypochondriasis.

Do visit a psychotherapist or psychologist for further advice.

Hope this clears your doubts. Available for further clarifications.
Get well soon.
