I think most people who read this, will agree that your symptoms are not always "anxiety", just because a physician states that. I am going through that type of situation right now and think that label makes me anxious as well as effects my physical health. I have had health problems since I was born and now I am bedridden and hopeless. I am falling apart at a much faster rate than I ever expected. I have so many symptoms, rare conditions, undiagnosed conditions and I have a doctor who doesn't believe me or want to invest his time. I am only 40 and should be out having fun, not living in bed, so sick that I think I am going to die. No person or patient should ever feel this way. To me, it seems cruel to leave someone this sick and not do anything to help. I am lost at this point and scared to death that something will happen to me. As far as the "anxiety" label?? It makes me so sick to even hear the term!! Yes, I'm anxious! ! I am sick, my doctor is an asshole and thinks I must love feeling like shit and love to make things up so I can go spend countless hours in the er to get no answers and have the er doctor say I just have anxiety!!! Lol! NOT!! I would rather be out having fun, playing in the sun, traveling, having a relationship, move out of my dad's house and be able to take care of myself. I don't know what person would make up being sick. Being ill will make any sick person have anxiety as well as having a doctor neglect you and think your a lier. Being this sick with many things going on at once, and not knowing why your health is declining is causing severe anxiety. I am very lost and hopeless at this point and I'm so sick of begging for help. It's bullshit and I hope I'm wrong about my feeling of what is going to happen.
