    It's hard to believe because your mind is unbelievably strong, but your doctors are smart and you should trust their opinion. If you need anything, post here or feel free to send me a PM.

    All the best!

    I could have written this myself! Anxiety is ruining my life. I have chest pain ALL the time and have had numerous testing and seen numerous Dr's and cannot seem to accept what they say. The only thing that keeps me going is that I haven't went down yet...I REALLY hope you start feeling better because I know how you feel and it is awful. sad

      I cry everyday. Does everyone feel like a different person too? I really feel different and not myself it's hard to explain. Yesterday I looked in the mirror and started to cry bc I didn't know that person. I lost 15lbs and I feel so weak and disgusting. I live everyday in fear that something bad is going to happen. I have chest pains tingling no energy no appetite and all these weird sensations and aches that send me into a panic. I can't believe it's just anxiety doing this either andni feel like no one listens to me and the drs just brush you off bc you have anxiety

      I'm just glad there are other people out there that understand what we are going through. Nothing is worse then trying to explain how you feel to someone and they are just like "get over it". I WISH I could.

      Doctors are trained not to miss things. If they did that many tests, you seem fine. Just remember that anxiety can't kill you. Again, post on here or send me a PM if you need anything.

      lol i know, that's the worst. I recently had friends apologize for how they treated me back when I had severe anxiety because they have started the same thing themselves and they get how bad it is.

      My mom doesn't get it at all and that's what she says to me. She says she doesn't want to listen to me anymore and to stop. She makes me feel worse. I think what hurts though is that she doesn't even try to understand and she sees me crying scared everyday and all the aches and pains are real what goes through my head is all real and it's awful and debilitating

      I still can't get these thoughts out of my head. The aches and pains and thoughts that go through my head are very real. It's really hard to believe that anxiety can make you feel this bad. And everytime one thing goes away another replaces it so I'm running back to a dr for something different again. I feel like they don't take you seriously when u have anxiety they blame everything on that and think your a hypochondriac. I know I am one but everything I feel is real like right ow I have chest pain pretty badsad

      Sometimes I feel like ok maybe it is and then other times I'm convinced something serious is wrong I go from one thing to another it's so exhausting. I know u need to stop but I google symptoms all day trying to feel better but it makes me worse
