    Me tooo!  The lump i take pepcid its digestion gine awry and stress related. I Have eye issues so i thought the flashes were from that but maybe they arent? You should see an opthamologist to be positive in regards to the eyes. Flashes can be all different things from nothing at all to migranes to an eye issue. Usually nothing but always check that. Wow kind of relieved in a way you wrote on this because im living it.

    I've had both of those symptoms. I've also, suffered from other symtpoms; shakiness, heart palpitations, sore chest, a pressure-feeling in my head... They're all real symptoms, that many people - believe it, or not - go through. I go through those symptoms pretty much everyday now. I recently, went to the hospital a couple of days ago, because my chest was hurting & I had trouble breathing. It was also, accompanied with the other symptoms. I honestly, thought I had a blood clot in my lungs, like my dad had, & he died from it, because they didn't do any tests. I had blood work done, urine tests, an EKG for my heart, & a lung x-ray. Everything came back perfect!! That was a bit of a relief, but I'm still having those horrifying symptoms.

    I get this too, my eye flashes got so bad that the doctor actually rapid referred me to an opthamologist, there was nothing at all wrong with my eyes and it all came down to anxiety and stress but the eye check was very reassuring and i agree that you should get yours checked too.

    The lump in the throat is horrid isn't it? Again it's an anxiety trick, i ate a mushed up strawberry earlier and felt like i was swallowing a brick, it's nasty to feel it but it is a very common anxiety symptom.

    Hi catherineb24 those feelings are extremely close to what I went through for a very long time. My feet would feel like they would always have to move so I could never relax. Then my butt would constantly bother me and make me very afraid too

    I get the eye flashes. I had a read on ocular migraines, which are usually totally painless and nothing to worry about. Can be brought on by different things, such as stress and smoking (both of which I'm guilty of)
