You’re never going to find relief until you accecpt it’s anxiety causing your issues.

You don’t believe it’s anxiety. So go to the doctor. Go again. Then go again. Then go again. Then go again.

Get more tests. EKG. Stress Test. Nuclear blood monitoring. Ultrasound. MRI. CT.

Go to specialist go to another specialist then go to another one

Either 1 of 2 things will happen .

1) They find something wrong, which no one here will ever be able to do for you, and begin helping you with medical treatment

2) they don’t find anything wrong and you finally accecpt it’s you doing all this to yourself, which no one here will ever be able to do for you, and you start working on making yourself better.

You’re going to have to do 1 of those 2 things. You’re not asking for advice or guidance here, Johnnie. You’re looking for sympathy and reassurance. Those things help I the short term, but without some actual action on your part, they’re doing you no good.

Figure it out man no one else will do it for you .


Johnnie1234, many times its your gut. The doc said you were ok. Sometimes I will be totally fine, go out to eat and after the first bite..........zap........My heart is racing, I'm sweating etc....I've just "dropped" adrenalin, for whatever reason. My thoughts, the food, whatever.

it always goes away, right? It's just that while it is going on, it gets your attention and you want to "fly" out of your body. That's what it feels like to me.

Johnnie1234, I'm familiar with your regular posts describing in detail all your symptoms which must be anxiety as you've had so many medical tests and no physical or organic cause has been found.

I did suggest a self help book but I don't think you have the motivation to go that route.

May I ask: have you had any one-to-one therapy courses? If not I think you should talk to your doctor about that.

Also, you have suffered a long time and are clearly experiencing distress on a daily basis so I think that a break from your worries by taking a course of anti-anxiety meds would give you the respite I think you need right now.

Have you tried medications, Johnnie?


Hi I agree with you jeff1943 that johnnie1234 can't accept his anxiety because as you said he is getting it on a daily basis and as we all know,when we have severe anxiety we can't think or focus. That's when medication is needed to calm the body down and ease the mind and body.so we can then except the anxiety symptoms for what they really are anxiety causes them.because once the medication calms you down.the symptoms reduces or disappears.
