Headaches that come and go real fast
Tightness in my head
Twitching nerves in/all around my head
Always worried about my else, can't think of anything else
Can't concentrate anymore
Feel like I can't breath
All my blood tests came back normal
How can I convince my doc to give me a CT scan and heart test? Or do I just have health anxiety even though my symptoms are REAL and I really do feel it and it's not in my head

hi yep it does sound like good old fashioned anxiety <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif"> look at it this way when youve been checked and found not to be suffering from anything else "at least it isnt any thing serious" l know its hard right now but you can learn to lessen the effects it has on you by regular relaxation, and learning about whats going on you could get claire weekes books these are real easy to understand and really helped me infact i felt like id wrote it <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif"> lol(i got mine from the libary) is your doc prescribing any meds for you? take care <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wave.gif">
I have alot of those symptoms and more. I had blood tests and ekg a pulmanary function test and they all came back normal. It is still hard for me to believe its just anxiety causing all these physical problems. I found that reading about the symtoms and reading other peoples stories helped me not be as afraid. I would just come out and ask your doctor for the test for your own peace of mind. Good luck and best wishes.
im the same as u ,,,im at the docs all the time ,,i think i have every thing wrong with me ,,i read too much and i have every symptom i read of but its hard to believe its stress ,,its easier to talk to some one the same as u ,,,,

does any one feel like there ill all the time cant breath right and cant take deep breath in,,fast pulse thinking ur going daft and dont believe it when some one says its anziety,,keep reading about illnesses and thinking u got every thing..a simple head ache is some thing more seriouse or chest pain is more worse than its is ,,is it just me or do other people feel like me.its taking over ,,its goes away for a bit and easy to cope with but comes back and gets harder each time to deal with ,,id like to talk to ones like me so i know im not going daft .
I can fully understand what you are going through as I have been through it. It was a few years ago and I had all the tests you could think of (all negative). I was put on various drugs some of which made the symptoms worse. I finally got better although it was a long hard battle. You have to build up your confidence in yourself nad have a positive outlook on life it helped me. If you need any help or advice I'd be happy to help further. Good Luck and have faith in yourself.
