For the past 4 months I've been suffering with palpitations, headaches, dizziness, lump sensation in throat, burning in throat or cold feeling, ended up in a and e and had ECG and bloods all normal, told I had anxiety, told to go to gp who put me on citalopram. ( I do not feel anxious and the only time I do is because of the way I feel illness wise) I have been on them nearly 2 months and all above symptoms apart from palpitations still remain, last week I went to the gp again who this time said I had reflux ( no tests didn't even look me over) and game me some omeprazole take one in morning and one at night, been on them a week and I'm still getting no relief, can anyone help because I am honestly scared I'm just going to drop dead, anyone else have these symptoms?

    I have been to see doctors again today, I had a chest x ray so awaiting results, he said to give the omeprazole more time as I've only had it a week he also gave me some gavisgon advanced. Popped into a local health store and brought some manuka honey at 20 umf it was really expensive but anything is worth a try! Hopefully xrays come bk fine, he offered me an endoscopy but I am so scared! My heart was pounding the whole time I was with the doctor, I've always been nervous in hospital surroundings but since this anxiety it's gotten worse, please all keep me posted on how you get on, it's nice to talk to people with the same issues, my partner nor my family understand they just think nothing is the matter, truthfully if I could stay in bed forever I would but with 3 kids and a family that's impossible.

      According to your age, you are so much anxious about your health, you don't have any big disease. Its your brain which is making you feel like that, tAke your anti depressant medicine on time, perform your 5 time prayers,and every time when you feel anxious or worry about anything..take a glass of water recite 3rd kalma at least 15 times then drink it Allah bless you with health aameen
