    Yes I do and it is horrible but u will get better as soon as u quit Dr. shopping and tell ur primary Dr. u believe it is anxiety. Then u can begin to be properly treated. I went from Dr. to Dr. I just knew something horrible was wrong and the Drs. just didn't get it. But going from Dr. to Dr. will make u even more crazy feeling. I am 63 years old and please trust me get to ur Dr. and tell them u are suffering from anxiety. I have had horrible vertigo and dizziness and zaps in my back numbness tingling absolute exhaustion from the stress of everything. I was afraid to go to sleep because I was sure I couldn't sleep I cried most of the time I paced back and forth for months and months until I stopped asking for test and just got help for the anxiety. I went on drugs and really began learning how anxiety really affects our mind and body. I have felt everything u have and there is no doubt it is anxiety.

    May I ask what kind of surgery you had, if it is not too personal?  I had pyleoplasty surgery on my left kidney three years ago which the specialist said went great.  However, I still kept getting a lot of pain from that area and no doctor took me serious until six months later I pushed for an ultrasound and CT Scan and found that my left kidney is just a mass of scar tissue and I have hydroponephrosis that has slowly been getting worse and worse that sometimes my inflated kidney pushes into my left lung, leaving me breathless and of course, simulating a panic attack.  Long story short, my panic attacks were being generated by something very real but it was a long fight to prove that to the doctors.  Today, I'm kind of diassociated with what's happening with my health, my panic attacks are more about my special needs daughter.  I don't know whether any of this helped, but I just wanted you to know that you are alone in chasing doctors in trying to find out/understand what's going on with your body.

    Big (((hugs))) sweetie. Having anxieties about health is just so scary to deal with isn't it? How long have you been feeling tired and foggy? Do you get a decent sleep at night?x

    To try and control your breathing and slow it down, take a deep breath in, count to five in your head, then let it out whilst counting to five again. Repeat this ten times. It works for me.x

    hey it's anxiety! I've got it too, and for me it's a combinstion of post-surgery recuperation and Finals at Uni. I've had pretty much every problem you can think of: TMJ, Tinnitus, chest pain, headaches,... I was even convinced it being sth. wrong with my hormones at one point!

    My advice would be to bear in mind that, before, during, and after your surgery, the hospital would have kept close watch on you: i/e blood count, testing of various hormones, urine tests, ultrasounds, heartrate... so, if there was anything seriously wrong they surely would have picked it up!

    And finally, don't expect too much of yourself; with surgery in Jan, it is likely your body is still recovering mentally as well as physically and will need a bit of time (I remember docs at my hospital telling me I'd need about six months to a year to be myself again - and also, general anasthetic makes you really tired and does stuff to your brain.)

    Hope this helps!
