Hi I am currently ttc but am really really stressed out. My

Customer Question

Hi
I am currently ttc but am really really stressed out. My job is very stressful and every morning at the moment I wake up sweating, shaking, stomach cramps and then get an upset stomach each morning. It passes by midday but I hav lost 7lbs in the past week from this. I have been stressed a while but these symptoms have been for the past week. I know I cant take any medication as we are trying for a baby but I really need something to help as I don't want to continue like this and I know it is not healthy for my body at all. Is there anything I can take?

dr afrasiabi :

your stress level appears to be VERY high. you will benefit from some medication. additionally make sure you eat something before going to bed. low blood sugar can give you those symptoms as well!

Customer : Ive been told i cant have anti depressants because of trying to get pregnant. Is there anything else i can have?
