    Coughing up blood is not related to anxiety,it suggests a physical problem,best idea is to see a dr

    Yup the rest of your symptoms seem anxiety but the coughing up blood is a bit tricky..could be due to you coughing to hard..since x ray didnt show anything...I have back pain too..mine is lower and upper back..sometimes in the middle feels sore..my chest too feels sore and tight..I have had 5 ecgs which came back normal yet it's so hard to convince myself my health is fine..

      Everything including chest pain can be anxiety,I get this too - its pretty common. Coughing blood however is absolutely a physical problem that can be serious or not,either way a Dr needs to look further into that particular aspect

      How often do you get chest pain?for me it's almost constantly. .from the moment I wake up. .and it comes and goes throughout the day..feel sore and tight..like when I curl my body inwards or stretch outwardo I would feel like sore/tender feeling or like my muscles being tear apart..Iso this anxiety?it's the most scariest symptom for me..so far I have had 5 ecgs and blood test/urine test thyroid test and blood pressure heart rate and 5 docs listened to my heart they told me it sounded clear and strong..Ithe just hard to convince myself it's anxiety. .

    Have a check up on your ECG or 2D-echo. How's your BP? Have you had any activities associated with these pains? Such as exercise or lifting objects? Blood tinged sputum can be attributed to many physical illness. I would suggest you to see your doctor, have an executive check up and see what would be the diagnosis. We have to rule out any physical diseases first before we can conclude for an anxiety.

    Ask for a MRI scan. Your Dr will contact the hospital and they will send you an appointment t.

    It sounds that you have back problems.

    Its a possibility

    Good luck and peace be with you, Linda.

      I am going for a pulmonary function test but it is not until 1 month away.  I have headache, left arm numb and pain, jaw pain, right chest breat pain and lung pain. CRP-HS is normal as well.  I am sure it is not back problem.  Anything else you guys can think of?

    Are you sure it's not your gums or nasopharynx are bleeding? Anyway you should see a pulmonologist and do a CT scan. Also pinching cervical nerve may case in your numb arm and headache.
