    I am in the same boat with about the same story as you however mine is my brain and I too am having trouble excepting it's not a brain issue and it's just anxiety that seems to be a huge problem for me and still having symptoms, I did have a great week then for no reason it came back last night and has been a constant all day

    I'm the same when it comes to obsessing over being ill. I'm constantly checking myself or googling things. I'm convinced there's something from with my throat. One min I think I'm okay then il feel a twinge then I become even more anxious panicking something's bad is happening. It's awful. People laugh when I say I'm going to the doctors "again" . I have been taking a remedy it seems to be helping, it's taking away the constantly anxious feeling xx

    I am in the exact same boat only its nausea and a tightness like bloating in my stomach instead my doctor said its probably linked to my anxiety but he let me get a ct scan. Nothing showed up in my stomach instead it showed up in my uterus that I have something wrongwith my fallopian tube. Which could also be linked to my problems. I just got prescribed propranolol and buspirone for anxiety, so far no problems. I do still have the nausea sad . My advice to you is say your symptoms are affecting your everyday life which is what I said because I can't do anything with nausea. If they won't check you out I recommend you find a different doctor or try to tell a women's health service doctor. They might take it more seriously. Good luck though I hope you find relief.
