My health anxiety is affecting my life, all started from worried that I had a blood clot in my leg after having calf pain, gp said cant be that after a negative d dimmer and 3 negative ultrasounds spaced weeks apart, but after reading stories online that they can be missed I was never convinced I didn't have one, then came a onslaught of symtoms in the weeks that followed .. Dizziness , feeling faint and unbalanced , pains all over body , stomach pain, feeling shakey and tired , and heaps of others, but the newest one , feeling short of breath / suffocating ... It comes and goes, sometimes lasts hours some times lasts mins ... But I'm really starting to think this isn't anxiety and that a blood clot has been missed and moved to my lung and I'm heading to a big problem ... Iv had all sorts of tests .. Bloods, ekgs, 24 hour heart monitor , spirometer , ultrasound of heart , as well as every time I went to the gp ( like 40 times ) my blood pressure was good, heart rate gets a little high but I can relax that down to a normal rate most days.. I went back to the gp yesterday to tell him my breathing problems are still there and he said if it doesn't go away he's going to scan my lungs just to be sure, but he's very sure it's anxiety/panic .. But I'm not convinced ... Anyone else had this sort of thing happen? In the space of a month
