    Living with some anxiety becomes normal, and manageable. Doctor sounds like a loser.  Some of the stuff you mentioned might be caused by other problems like panic attack and low blood pressure. Not sure of your meds, but most cause low blood pressure, which could give you leg problems.See if your doctor will talk with you on natural way to deal with anxiety and taking B12. Explore progressive relaxation to deal with negative chain reaction loud sounds are setting off. Best of luck.
