    My body has a complete breakdown when I feel a lot of anxiety. Chest pain, arm and leg pain, rib and back pain. It's crazy. I have found a lump in my arm as well. Have you had blood work done?

    Hi Ashlee. You sound like you suffer from GAD, Generalised Anxiety Disorder. You are not alone. Millions suffer from this. I have anxiety related problems as well and I have found that it is very crucial that we learn to manage our stress. Most of it comes from out thinking. There are many helpful books online that can help you to do this. One book that I found beneficial is Take Control of Your Worry. But you can find other books that are just as helpful. Learning to challenge your thinking is a real key Ashlee. Cognitive Therapy is a great tool in controlling our worrisome thoughts. Most of what we worry about never happens. So when you think of it, we spend a great deal of useless time worrying about things that is not necessary. So challenging your thinking can really help to stop the obsessive worry. The line down the page has helped me on many occasions. On one side you write down your worrisome or obsessive thought and then on the other side of the line, you reason with that thought as you would your dearest friend. It has to be completely honest, but you will find just how irrational your thoughts really are, just by doing this simple exercise. After you resolve one worry or negative thought, then you go on to the next one and tackle it. It works, believe me. You can get more details if you search out Dr David Burns simple method to reduce stress and worry. You CAN get on top of this Ashlee. It takes a bit of work, but it is well worth the effort. Maggie
