All my problems seemed to start about 3 months ago. I was in and out of ER rooms with chest pain/pressure. Ive had multiple EKGs, chest xrays, blood work, a ct scan and more recently a stress test done. All tests come back showing no problem. I was diagnosed with anxiety by three different doctors, yet for some reason I can't seem to accept that this is the problem. I've dropped nearly 30 lbs in the past month and while I'm convinced I don't have a problem in my chest area, now my focus seems to have shifted to an abdominal problem (ie, gallbladder, acid reflux, liver shutting down etc). I have a ultrasound on my abdomen scheduled for Monday and meeting with a GI doc on Tuesday to discuss doing an endoscopy.
I know anxiety can be causing virtually every symptom I have. I'm reluctant to try and take the medications given to me to help...don't know why. I try to google.my symptoms which just makes me panic more thinking I have something that I realistically probably don't. I guess my question is how does one deal with this? I'm trying a mind over matter approach and I'm losing...badly. Can anyone offer suggestions?
