      Actually visiting the ER is a safety behaviour, if there's nothing wrong with you it'll be detrimental to you as it'll become apart of your panic cycle. If you're healthy and the doctors say you're fine you need to cut it out as its only exacerbating your anxiety and it'll make you worse in the long run.

    I have this same problem. I can assure you it is only your anxiety. Anxiety can make you have some very weird physical symptoms. Try to relax, it will pass. BUT if you want reassurance don't feel ashamed to go to the doctor. It's something we all do. Hope you feel better soon. smile

    If these symptoms have happened before and you e spoken to a doctor about them and they're benign then that's fine, if it's suddenly come on and it's a new symptom, then phone your GP tomorrow or go to the walk in centre tomorrow.

    If it's anxiety and you're not getting help for it then speak to your GP about getting some therapy.

    Best of luck.

    HI --- wonder what you decided?  Are you in the UK?  Does sound like stress ----I hate all the waiting in most ERs.   I get your stress ---me too--lately---undergoing heart tests & is so scary.  Stress is so uncomfortable to say the least.  I have been in the ER many times over the many years.

         Do what you feel you have to do to feel safe or call someone.  Good luck.

    Hey everyone. Didn't go to the ER tonigh . I got a hold of my dad and he made me feel better. I'm in a very stressful living situation, my job is a little stressful, and just a lot going. Thand you everyone who commented. It helped a lot... I want to still go though and I really think it'll make me feel so better but I don't want to waste my the doctors time when they can be dealing with someone who seriously needs it more than I do. I May just do it someday but tonight no.. the reading and speaking us something new with me but I get new things coming up alol the time. I have a friend who has a massive brain tumor and I feel like I'm over thinking that I have one because she does. She isn't going to die from it but it is one of my biggest fears and I think this where it's coming from. Plus everything else that's stressful in my life.. thanks for listening everyone and being there when I truly needed help and people to talk to...

    For sanity...go to the ER.

    no one can tell you it is just anxiety...talking and headaches are not things to be taken lightly.
