I everyone I just need to tell my story unfortunately it sounds a lot like everybody else's struggle with this awful illness. Mine started in 2011 with a panic attack where I ended up in the ER. It was out of the blue and scared the life out of me. They did ekgs and all the usual tests and said you are fine however my BP was 230/110! They gave me a Valium and 20mins later it was 130/80.
I have struggled with anxiety since that time I have been back to the ER about 4 times with the same result.
My Dr has sent me for many tests Cat scans ultrasounds and at least 20 blood and urine tests which have all been good. I'm currently on BP medication and I take a Ativan when absolutely needed.
I guess I can't accept anxiety can give you all these horrible symptoms. My current symptoms are chest/ back pain dizziness ringing in the ears and a general feeling of not being well. I still get occasional spikes in high BP which my Dr assures me is anxiety. It still scares me though.
Like everyone else I wish I never would have googled my symptoms when I first became ill. I gave myself every major illness. I currently think my kidneys are failing even though my recent medical 3 weeks ago was excellent for my age I'm 57. I'm pretty fit workout everyday don't smoke and generally look after myself.
I have had good health all of my life until that first panic attack since then it has changed.
It's comforting to know that other people are going through similar issues. Even though I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy. Thanks for reading.
