Hello, can any of you offer me some reassurance ? A bit about me. I am an adult survivor of childhood cancer, when I hit my teens I started suffering with anxiety, and basically spent from my early 20's to early 40's on various antidepressants. 3 yrs ago I was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy as a result of chemotherapy, and started on a variety of meds for the condition. Unfortunately, my anxiety which although never completely went returned with vengeance ! I am having counselling, with limited effect. My symptoms are abdominal pain often severe, nausea again often severe, dizziness, fatigue and fear of contamination. Along side this I have symptoms from the cardiomyopathy. I also have a real fear of diagnostics medicine wise, I can cope with blood tests and echo's but it stops there. For some time now everyday is just a complete struggle, I have a constant fear that my cancer is back, but can't tell my docs as they will want to do X-rays etc, the abdo pain and nausea are awful, I am sorry to go on just feel really quite desperate, does anyone else on here have similar symptoms ? I also get a lot of chest pain, any advice or words of wisdom would be very much appreciated.
