Yes, ribs hurt, back from neck to buttocks. Arms and legs ache or have buzzing, burning sensation s, had this for over 3 years now.

Constantly thinking about it, so I am feeding it! It's anxiety and its so annoying gets us in its grip and scares the he'll outta us and impacts badly on our day to day lives.

I wish you the best with it, we need to try to stop over thinking. I came across a therapist that does YouTube talks on stress and worry and physical symptoms, called Kim Knight...take a look and let me know what you think?


Thank you for taking the time to reply my aches turn into like a stinging sensation it's scaring the crap outta me and like you I constantly think about it. I did have a fasting blood test last Monday which I phoned for the results on Wednesday to be told some were OK some wasn't and my Dr will call me on the 27th of this month to discuss them ☹️ which is another 2 weeks so now my anxiety has got a real grip on me convinced I've got something sinister like prostate cancer.



I'm sure if you had something serious that wouldn't wait two weeks to tell you. Make an appointment sooner and find out, you'll drive yourself crazy waiting that long. Let me know how you get on.

And try not to worry bout your aches and pains. They feel more weird to me than they hurt and as I said I have had this for three years and am still here.

Keep in touch if you want to talk.

Anxiety is cruel but you're not alone x
