I have cold/flu and every time i get sick i get depressed and my anxiety acts up and i just feel lost and confused and worried. Is this normal ?

Yes!: Yes! don't feel bad this is not at all uncommon. Make sure your primary care doc knows if you are on any psych medications, as they can sometimes interact with antibiotics (and be less effective). But mostly what happens is, your body feels yucky, so your brain feels yucky, too! drink lots of water, try to sit near a window and get some sunshine if not real fresh air. Call a friend, get a hug! ...Read more

Check With MD: The gastrointestinal tract is closely linked to anxiety. So much so, that one can have situations where one is unsure what is actually causing the symptoms. The only way to get a definitive answer to a question like this is to meet with your primary care physician. She/he is trained to take a clinical history and to perform a physical examination to determine the exact cause of such anxiety. ...Read more
