I’ve had anxiety since I was a child and at times in my life it’s flared up and down but since having my gallbladder removed 3 weeks ago I’ve had severe anxiety and depression and can’t sleep. Does anyone else have this?
The other day–I had to go to the er bc I was having a super anxiety attack. I don’t have anxiety. I’m pretty sure it was gb related. I’m 5 months PO. My heart was beating fast, my thoughts were racing and my pupils were dilated. The dr gave me a big shot of Xanax, and it didn’t help! I went home, went to bed and woke up with the feeling for the most part of the next day. I was unable to eat for 4 days–I had no appetite. I’m not sure if it was from sugar, or ham—maybe both in the same day….oh—and I had to pee back to back for these 4 days. Today is the first day I’m feeling a little better. Does anyone else get anxiety-like attacks?
