This is Dr. Bonilla. I understand your concerns.

The symptoms you described could be related to different etiologies including stress, thyroid problems or digestive problems. You should go to your PCP and have full blood work to rule out these conditions.

Please leave a positive rating.

i have done all types of blood work and everything came back normal. she said i might have acid reflux which seems to be off with the symptoms im having.

It's unlikely to have reflux if you are not responding to the treatment. You should see a therapist to rule out stress related problems.
