Hi there, lately I’ve been waking up randomly with really bad anxiety, sick to my stomach feeling, heart racing, some indigestion, and sweats.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had indigestion? Have you used any medication for it?

I’m 5 months post partum, I had it a lot pregnant but not much since giving birth but a bit recently.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about indigestion?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I’ve suffered from anxiety prior to pregnancy for about a year but was fine during and even after it’s kinda of reappeared lately.

I’ve been so busy lately as I’m out of town teaching and Havnt been eating much. Could lack of food and sleep also contribute to these symptoms?

Yes, lack of sleep and food would definitely contribute to the symptoms.

Wishing you a speedy resolution.

Anxiety can be treated by the following measures by yourself;

1) Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and operant-behavioral therapy (OBT); done by a psychologist.

2) Relaxation training and biofeedback.

3) Hypnosis

4) Acupuncture and acupressure

5) Yoga

6) Meditation

7) Group sporting activities
