sharp pains etc. ????

I was wondering about sharp pains that moves around the body.I started having dull sharp pains in my left hand,wrist,arm and shoulder a couple weeks ago never in all those areas at once just one area at a time.Then a few days later this same pain was in my thigh then i noticed it in the bottom of my foot,right arm,leg,between shoulder blades,and twice the left side of my chest.

I should give a bit of history I have felt soooo many things since I fainted 12 yrs ago is when it all started then I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder.I do for sure have anxiety disorder,but I sometimes wonder I have since fainted 5 times in the last 12 yrs feeling awful afterwards very weak can hardly move,sweat from head to toe,sick to my stomach,heart racing or chest pressure.this has all been said to be due to anxiety/stress by serveral doctors. if you have an opinion on this id like to hear it

but my main concern right now is these dull sharp pains they come and go I am a 31 yr old mother of 5 .....i do smoke overweight (just had my last child 9 months ago)

I also was having palpitations pretty often at night when trying to sleep like a month go (havent had many since) these were flutters,skips,quivers,irregular beats.Had a holter monitor test done and still havent gotten the results back (2 months almost now waiting and calling...ridiculous IMHO)......sorry this is so long just have always worried something more then anxiety/stress has been going on here

thanks for responces in advance

Re: sharp pains etc. ????

Have you ever had a full neurological eval by a good neurologist?this does sound like something more than just anxiety really does appear that there could be something going on with some other body system.have you had a FULL and TOTAL physical with labs to check on just how well all of your body systems are actually functioning,like the thyroid and other basic functions along those lines?when certain systems are not running right they can show themselves in ways like with sysptoms such as just love to blow off the more 'out of the box" type symptoms and will attribute them to things like anxiety or depression,you know the catch all Dxs?this could also be more neurological,something with the way the brain is functioning,or not functioning?
Unfortunetly,in order to get the appropriate care that we need,in this day and age where all docs are just so busy and have way too many patients to keep track of,you really really need to push it sometimes to even really get noticed,you know what i mean.The squeeky wheel gets the grease??Anytime that you feel something is just 'not right" and your doc just blows you off or gives you some stupid Dx that you know is much more you need to push him/her for more answers.Fainting that often or even once or twice IS something,or the symptom of something and it needs to be found out.Sometimes Dxs just are not easy,but when you have a doc that does not seem to really care about you or your medical issues well trying to actually get any sort of real Dx is next to immpossible.if your current doc does not feel that this is something more than plain anxiety,you have two choices.sit down with your current doc and explain what you need.Just tell them that something is just not right here,I can feel it and it is much more than just are my Dr,please help me find out just what my problem is.If they do not respond in a favorable way,then find another doc who DO deserve to know what your medical problems are so they can be properly have to advocate for yourself as there is no one who can do a better job at that than you,trust me.Between myself and my youngest son,we have seen more docs and specialists than I think i can even count.we both have many many major medical issues we have to deal with and have I found that the very best way to deal with any docs is the direct approach and expect it back.just push it till you get the answers.sorry i could not offer you much in the way of 'real" help.just start telling your docs what you expect and need.hopefully they will do their jobs for you.Please keep me posted on whjat you find.good luck,**
