Hello everyone. For more than a month now I have been struggling with something I considered a health issue. It all started when I was diagnostied with celiac disease. I didnt even have time to star worrying about it, because a strong pressure like feeling in my head and behind eyes suddenly appeared out of the blue, I felt terrible, my whole body was shaking and I started getting into a panic mode everytime it started. As time went by the symptoms started changing. I had severe back and neck pain, I was afraid to move because all my joints were making cracking sounds more often than ever before. I was struggling with breathing. My chest hurt a lot. I couldn't sleep because all the small things kept waking me up.
Of course I went to various doctors, but it was hard explaining what's wrong with me, when I had different symptoms each week. It felt as if when one worry was gone, another one appeared. I had my eyes checked, I was on neurology for a basic exam, I had RTG on my lungs, I went to intern to have my heart chcekd, all was okay and normal.
But I wasn't.
Especially when I lie down, the pressure in my head starts, I feel as if it will explode any seconds and I am so afraid. I was told by four doctors that it is probably only in my head. That it is a mental issue and that I will be okay. One side of me believes that, because it seems highly unlikely that it all started randomly and that I feel so many random symptoms.
Yet I got into a point when I am constantly afraid. I try to hide it, try to fight with myself, but even if I tell myself that its just in my head, the things I feel are real. How can I believe that I am healthy and okay, if I cannot breathe?
I just don't know what to do anymore. If it is a mental issue, shall I try to find a professional to discuss it with? But what if it is really a health thing and it just slipped the doctor's attention?
I was never a person who worries too much for a long time. I took things as they were, felt terrible for a shrot time and then left it all forgotten. Now I feel like constantly crying for no reason, but I cannot even do that, because I am afraid the pressure in my head would only get worse.
Could anyone maybe talk with me about this?
