I think my mind is out of it. I've been having problems sice last july with dizziness, and have been to a neuroologist, GP, ENT and endocrinologist, I also am hypothryoid. But my anxiety as some of you may know has been awful and in the past month my stress has gone up. every time I go to the doctors my stress and anxiety go up, but my dizzienss I've been told told by the ENT is Migraine associated vertigo, and last week my GP listened very closely to myheart and the blood vessels in the neck and said it all sounds clear and he did blood test, lipid panel, metobolic panel and a cbc, he called and said they are all good, swaw my endo this week and the thyroid levels are getting back to normal. But the anxiety is still here, I've had every symptom possible with this, years ago it was heart worries, now its back to that, i'm feeling tighteness at times, with left arm and shoulder pain when i'm anxious , constantly checking the beats which are around 80, I keep thinking now its my heart becasue of all the stress Ive had over the past 9 months but more recently because of this dizziness. The left arm pain is up in the shoulder and sometimes in the arm pit and when I push on the shoulder blade it hurts, I told the chiropractor about it yesterday and I notices it got bad before the chiropractor visit, I go there 3 days a week as he is working on the dizziness also, but I'm having some dizziness after I leave there so now I'm having anxiety about going. I know it all sounds stupid, I'm trying to get well but having anxiety about it. All the doctors says I'm not sick except for the anxiety, which I have an appt to see a psychologist next friday about. Wouldn't you think knowing that things are looking better I would feel better? Doesn't that make sense. Why is it with anxiety it can't be gone when you know your doing better. I don't feel so great, of course now with all the stress and anxiety I've had and still have Im worried it has effected my heart. So I guess now I'm paying so much attention to it. I've also noticed my smoking has cut way down, and I've been having a head ached for days which is a bit better and wondering if the drastic cut down is causing anxiety and the headaches. I'm trying so hard to let the anxiety go, i'm doing meditation every day, using breathing exercises when I feel anxious, relaxing more at ight, i've taken up the coloring craze and do that. I think anouth thing is that I'm very subjective to when someone says things like you may need meds for the anxiety and that scares me as I don't want to take them coz of the side effects. My GP says he thinks I also have depression, which would make since with being dizziness 24/7 for 9 months. I'm curious if anyone else has thedoctors tell them they are not sick, but yet the anxiety lingers along with the worry? And have any of you been stressed and anxius for months and worried about your heart?
Thanks for listening and any advice.
