    Hi David 

    I was  very badly stressed a few years ago and had  muscle weakness, shortness of breath,tight chest, weight loss, upset stomach, headaches, aches and pains, memory problems, concentrations problems etc etc etc..

    Understandable you are worrying about your symptoms which can cause anxiety and make things worse.  If your not happy with what the doctor is telling you.  Keep a diary of your symptoms and what points of the day they effect you the most.  Does anything in particular make them worse is.. Is there anything in the last year that has caused you a lot of stress that you forgot about or didn't realise had affected you..

    Go back to your doctor and if you still don't think it is anxiety you have everything written down for him to see..

    I share at least eight of your symptoms and a few more of my own :0)

    Hard as it can sometimes be you have to trust your doctor. If he/she has run the appropriate tests (sounds like he/she has) then you have to accept the diagnosis. Acceptance is the first stage in your recovery. For what it's worth I can recommend Mindfulness as a useful tool in the fight against Anxiety and know there are several good apps avalable for this online!

    Good luck and where possible try to relax, you are in good company...

    If you are not a worry kind of person perhaps your gut is unbalanced. Gerd and reflux can cause many issues. But im going to be honest here stomach issues eventually lead to anxiety issues. See gerd diets and get some really great probiotics and see in a month if it all feels a bit better.the stomach is the second brain.
