I'm in real need of some advice to ease my mind. I'm really struggling with a whole bunch of physical symptoms that I just can't accept are anxiety. A few weeks ago I was having severe lower right side pain and went to the ER multiple times in fear of appendicitis. The doctors did tests and assured me its not that. I'm still getting the pain weeks later and not sure why. Anyway, as a result of that plus my anxiety, I missed alot of school and now I'm extremely far behind. I have several assignment deadlines and I'm no where near done. The stress is so bad that I can barely function. I also have alot of other issues going on in my life that are really affecting me. The physical symptoms are killing me. One goes away, and the next one starts. Right now, I'm having trouble breathing, a feeling of something stuck in my throat, lightheadedness, and dizziness. These symptoms are quite constant and are really freaking me out as I feel like I will pass out or suffocate any second! I'm scared to eat, go out, or do anything really. Plus its hard for me to walk because of the dizziness. I'm also having back pain, stomach pain, nausea, random tingly sensations everywhere, headaches, brain fog, feeling like im in a dream (depersonalization), etc.. Im seeing a therapist but I feel like I'm just too overwhelmed for any strategies to work. Im convinced there's something physically wrong with me and scared that I have an illness that the doctors are missing. Its also Saturday evening and all the clinics are closed so I cant go back to one. I'm really scared and don't know what to do anymore. I broke down crying earlier and I just feel like I can't go on. Please help me
