From the few that I can remember: Angina, heart disease, heart attach, brain tumor, brain problems, rabies, lyme, west nile virus, fibromyalgia, nerve damage, GERD, Hiatal hernia, high blood pressure, afib and more that I can probably not remember right now.

Most of them I think I still have them, lol.

When I had bad post partum depression and anxiety two years ago, over the course of three months I thought I had:

Ms
Sjogrens Syndrome
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Colon Cancer
Brain Tumor

Since I thought I was 'all better' a few months ago and went off Celexa, it's been slowly gaining momentum:

Losing my vision
Ear problems
Heart attack/disease
Right now I'm back on Sjögren's Syndrome because of dry mouth (I don't think I ever really got over that one either from last time)

It's probably a shorter list of what I haven't thought I have had!  :spineyes:

MS, ALS, leukemia, myelodyspalstic syndrome, AIDS, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, anal cancer, Alzheimer's, oral cancer, multiple myeloma, abdominal aneurysm, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer.  I've seen a doctor and been tested for just about every one of those illnesses.  I'm sure there's more that I'm just not thinking of right now.  At the moment I'm quite concerned because calcium deposits were found in my aorta (I'm only 51 and thin!) during yet another ultrasound, although my doctor is not concerned.  I never worried about having a heart attack before, so now I'm fixated on that possibility.

Thanks for your reassurance, Ineedtosmile (I need to smile too!).  My brother-in-law died in less than a year of AML (he had to tell his primary care physician to order blood tests, and then at first his hematologist told him he had the "good kind" of leukemia!), and now my husband found out he has CLL only because we asked for follow-up blood work (his doctor told him his initial blood work was fine!).  Hard for me to trust doctors totally.  Frankly, if it weren't for my kids, a heart attack would be welcome.
