    Dear preckle87,
    Would you like me to continue my list above or just answer to some of yours? Just seems to be severe panic disorder to me. You have apparently had all tests to rule out everything else such as MRI, or CT, blood tests, etc? You should also see an ear specialist if you haven't. Rule out everything else first. If so then I will tell you that the senses are hightened by panic disorder. This effects me primarily in the ears and throat area as far as senses. Some times my ears are plugged, and other times I can hear conversations going on at a distance that I should not be able to hear. Panic disorder effects everyone different because it is the mind playing tricks on your body. Of course the Doctors think you are crazy, they have no answer for this and they never will unless they get it. You are not going crazy. Sharp pains are common symptoms for me also. Sometimes I think I stepped on a nail or something but I have had this for so long, before I look I remember that it is a symptoms and go on about my business. Sometimes I get sharp a sharp pain, like someone just stabbed me in the leg. Just a brain trick. Loud popping, aching joints, limbs, arms, chest, neck head, sore spots on head, throat soreness, all of your above and more. When I bend over sometimes my upper spine pops and feels as though it stretched. My lower spine does the same. Do you get hot flushes or electric shock feelings? Numb or cold sensations in hands or feet? Are you panicing over these symptoms that you have? What medications are you taking for this? I am logging off for the night, but Please post back some of these answers. You are not alone

    Sincerely,

    Sickman

    Re: Strange Symptoms

    As far as all the ear related problems you mention, I also went thru over a year of tests, doctors & anti-biotics for ear problems. Had pain in my throat, neck, roof of my mouth, face, eyes, neck etc. etc. It was all stress related, due to the fact that for years now I have gritted my teeth when I'm anxious or under stress. Finally after over a year, they came up with a diagnosis of TMJ from stress. TMJ can cause headaches, pain anywhere in the head, face, neck, ear area, plus noises in ear, noises when you swallow etc.

    yeah, ive been told over and over "its stress, its anxiety" blah blah. Bur i dont feel like it is. i dont feel panicy or stressed. i feel nothign really. ive recently started normal activities agian (performing in shows) I got out there, found myself a lead in a show and i hope this will make me feel better. hopefully it will take my mind off things. its still very strange. im sitting here now and the front of my chest has this strange sensatin and there are little prickly pains. my ears also pop when i talk or sing. it slike squeezing air into them! really, i hope this goes away one i start up again.

    Re: Strange Symptoms

    preckle87: If i were you, i would go back to the doctors till he/she says ok we will do some tests, you want a ct to rule anything out, if they say it is all anxiety related you tell them, if you had anxiety how can you perform? cus you can, you tell them straught.. and you dont leave that office till doctor says he/she will arrange a ct scan. let us know xx

    Re: Strange Symptoms

    I had similar thoughts when my anxiety started. I had all these physical symptoms but never felt anxious or panicky mentally. Just a note on something that helped me realize that yes, my symptoms were actually due to anxiety:

    Take note if the symptoms go away while you are performing. If they do, it is very likely anxiety. I noticed that my symptoms would miraculously disappear while I was distracted by something I really enjoyed doing and then would come back as soon as I started thinking about them again.

    Also, of course, you should see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. But the fact that you have sensations all over your body make me think it's probably anxiety.

    Best of luck and break a leg.
