Hey guys, I've been feeling so down lately. A month ago I had severe abdominal pain and went to the ER and found out I have a kidney stone (tiny and stuck) and an ovarian cyst that ruptured. After that was over I noticed my collarbone is slightly more pronounced on one side. I asked my back doctor about it as I have scoliosis and she said it isn't s big deal but I can't even look at it or I get really nervous and freak out. Then about 3 weeks ago I felt like I was being choked and the feeling has been on and off since then. The 2 doctors I saw blame my allergies but then I started having heart palpitations and a heart skipping feeling (had it all before) and they told me it's probably just my panic disorder reemerging. I'm still struggling to breathe deep and every day a couple times I feel a shot of adrenaline go through my chest which scares me to death. Also, I get pains in my arm and leg right after. On top of it all I feel like there is so much trapped gas in my chest and stomach. I still have more doctors to see to make sure it isn't anything serious, but for now I'm just feeling really miserable and I keep thinking the worst case scenario is happening like I'm going to have a heart attack or I'll find out my heart is failing or I have cancer or something. I'm on vacation now and I feel horrible because I'm trying to be upbeat and happy for my family and bf since this vacation is for my college graduation, but it's so hard I broke down today. My anxiety is the worst it's ever been in having at least 2 attacks a day now. My question is if all this turns out to be just anxiety should I consider medication? I've done cbt before and that helped a lot but didn't totally get rid of physical symptoms. Any advice from those taking medication would be greatly appreciated. This site makes me feel so much better like I'm not totally alone
