Hi just wondering how you got on with your doctors appointment . I have also just turned 50 and am experiencing everything you have described. Spasms and pain all over body ibs symptoms and a terrible spasms in my head they start in back of head or neck and sometimes throat and travel up then my face can become numb. I am on gabapentin and amitriptyline but its still happening quite debilitating. Every time i see doctor they mention anxiety and after looking up the symptoms it seems like all the symptoms but it feels like something more to me been four months now and no relief as soon as i wake up its there. Just wondering how you are getting on and if you got a diagnosis.

1234don, I can tell you to not obsess about your symptoms but I understand how difficult that can be. I have had every one you are experiencing at one time. After having test after test done it was shown to be severe anxiety disorder GAD
