Had a CT scan 4 mnt ago for abdominal bloating came out clear last 3 months stomach pulsating and throbbing what can cause this anxiety or sometn else?

Abd pain/cramps: Many things can cause this. Normal CT scan very reassuring. Irritable bowel, stress, anxiety can all play a role. Any things in your diet that are triggers? Might want to keep symptom diary and dietary diary and see if anything is a trigger. Also your stress/anxiety level day to day, keep track of it along with the others. May help point to a cause. Hope this helps. Good luck ...Read more

Need Formal Eval: I empathize with your dilemma-it is very frustrating when pain is attributed to "anxiety" (though it does occur). You need to find a gastroenterologist or primary care dr. Willing to take the time to review all the tests performed to-date. Chances are that you need a "problem-solver" rather than repeating tests already completed. Have you had a cck-hida scan? This checks 4 gallbladder dysfunction. ...Read more

Although : Although many of these symptoms might be explained by depression and anxiety, they could have other causes. That is the reason that your medical health needs to be checked out before just assuming it is from a mental health problem. For instance: is your vitamin d level normal? Is your carnitine level normal? Is your thyroid level normal? If you are male - is your testosterone level normal? Are you anemic? Do you have a urinary tract infection? This is a tiny sampling. I recommend that you have a thorough physical examination and if none of your symptoms are explained by medical conditions, then follow through with a psychiatric evaluation. Take care. ...Read more
