No one knows what's wrong
« on: February 11, 2014, 06:40:34 AM »
So frustrated. I've been in hospital since Saturday after feeling faint and dizzy amongst othe symptoms. I've been feeling very ill for over a month now. They've found wolff-parkinson white disease when I had an ECG done. They've sent off various blood tests, chest x rays, further ECGs, swabs but I'm yet to hear anything back. I'm experiencing so many horrible symptoms and they're really affecting me. These aren't vague pains they're real and awful. I'm convinced I have a brain tumour or MS but I'm on the cardiology ward, I don't see why they don't do a head scan. Symptoms are

Hot and cold dots lips, face, knees, neck, legs
Shaking hands
Face rash

Head pain above eyes
Dizziness

I'm so sorry you're experiencing this :(

One thing someone told me once though, that's come in very handy is that - if you have a serious disease, you will usually experience only one or two symptoms at a time 

One of the ways doctors diagnose anxiety is by the sheer NUMBER of symptoms we experience. And looking at your list, I'd say pretty safely you have quite a few.

Have you had a look at the sticky at the tip of the board which contains a list of some if the most common anxiety symptoms? http://www.anxietyzone.com/index.php/topic,73134.0.html

I think most of yours will be on there somewhere. Have you mentioned anxiety to any of your doctors at all? They might be able to recommend a treatment to help you feel better.

I hope you feel better - keep us updated!

Thanks for the reply, it's just that there's so much going on

I get strange head pains and joint pains, I'm not aware these are symptoms of anxiety/stress? my hands have been constantly trembling and shaking in my hands. My whole body vibrates and jitters. I have jiggly pains everywhere and pins+needles. I was taking fluoxetine for 11 days but have changed to Trazadone which I've now been taking for 12 days.

That is great that you are taking something, although I don't know much about trazadone, but please keep this in mind:  if it is anxiety, having so many symptoms like that is realistic.  And to be experiencing that many symptoms says your body must be under extreme stress.  That being said, theses symptoms will NOT just disappear because you somehow managed to have a less anxious day or because you are taking (or switched) meds.  The symptoms are going to stick around until you can manage your anxiety for a long enough period of time that your body can begin to rest and heal.  That is no quick process but it most definitely can be done.  Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply! It's just constant though with tingling, itching, pains everywhere, head pains, aches etc. I don't understand. Is joint pain even a symptom of anxiety?

Anxiety can manifest itself in unbelievable ways!  And 'constant' is common.  There is no quick fix to make everything go away.  The mind needs to heal before the physical symptoms disappear.

It's funny (not LOL funny, but "curious") a lot of things tingling, itching, joint pains, etc are symptoms of menopause.   Menopause has MANY of the same symptoms of anxiety AND hypothyroidism (did you get checked for that?  Hypothyroidism, not menopause!  LOL!)

Yeah they've ran about 4 separate blood tests checking for hyperthyroidism and other things, the results aren't all back yet but no irregularities have been reported so far. So anxiety and stress can really cause all this? It's bizarre. I'm hoping I'm not the first 21 year old male in history to to through a menopause!

I have random diffing degrees of, but, CONSTANT:

Shaky, trembling, jittery, inner vibration feelings,
Dizziness/"off-balance" feeling,
Breathlessness (I feel as if my lungs aren't working properly...as if I can't get any air...suffocation),
Headaches,
Neck pain,
Jaw pain,
Horrible upper back pain,
Left arm pain,
Chest pains,
Vision issues (seeing spots, flashes, blurry, foggy, etc.),
Random numbness (hands, feet, face, tongue, etc.),
Random pins/needles,
Nausea,
Random itchy patches of skin,
Muscle twitches,
Muscle soreness,
Lethargic,


And every few days I get:
Random shocking electrical waves through various parts of my body,
Random ice cold or hot patches in various parts of my body,
Bone pain,
Joint pain,
Muscle spasms,

And I could seriously continue the list with symptoms I have had or still do have once in a while because of my Anxiety.
I've even had my whole left side suddenly go numb about 4 different times! (Ran to ER, of course)
And I've gone suddenly and completely blind 3 different times! (It was as if someone had put a dark grey curtain in the way of my eyesight)

And after ALL of this and more that I haven't mentioned...the outcome is always the same..."Your healthy...it's just anxiety...calm down."

It can be so annoying....believe me I know, but after this hospital visit, if they find nothing wrong with you, you have to be willing to accept the diagnoses of Anxiety Disorder.
It's the only way you're going to be able to get on with your life.

I know this because I am struggling with this exact thing as I type....and so are most of the people in this forum.
Smile...you are not alone and you will be okay  :bigsmile:
