Yes i agree and im a very logical person but somehow when im anxious its like i turn dumb lol. I lose all logic and spin down into a hole. Idk theres obv something wrong with me. It sounds crazy but i convinced myself ive had cancer, tumors, liver failure, kidney failure and heart attack or stroke etc. Im seriously like chucky from Rugrats

I understand, all of us understand. We're all here on this forum for a reason right? Totally understand the feeling where you lose all logic. I've been convinced I've had colon cancer (I'm 16 which makes that a totally irrational fear), ALS (again, irrational), MS, a brain eating amoeba, list goes on. All of those have something common, they're all rare. Even more so at my age. And they're all major diseases that strike fear in people. My point is, anxiety and fear makes you irrational. Look up catastrophizing if you haven't yet. All of us on here do it.
                            well thanks man, im 23 so a heart attack is rare, hell ALL of what i mentioned is rare. I looked up catastrophizing and it sounds very familiar lol. Sometimes i go a few hours without worrying about it and then a thought pops in and it depresses me a bit. Its almost as if im addicted to the stress and sudden relief, like ill worry then rush to the doc and once she clears me its like a high feeling. Very weird

You've had the tests.  It's anxiety.  After the back the shoulder is the most popular muscle group to be subject to chronic stress.  Plus you are left handed, and that is the side you would react to in  the "fight or flight" reflex, clinching and shrinking and rolling the shoulder over, all done unconsciously.

As far as a rotator cuff, forget about it.  It's a catch all, unless you are a major league pitcher or an NFL quarterback. 

Why doesn't it hurt during sex?  Easy, your thoughts are on another muscle.   :laugh3:

You're at the age that if you understand you have an anxiety illness you can get help with it and learn how to deal with it; otherwise, your symptoms will get worse, and you will go from doc to doc, and end up a true mental and physical basket case. Do something about your anxiety now!

                                 thank you, i agree my doc currently is a reputable sports medicine doctor, she suggested meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy. Is there anything else to help anxiety without drugs? I used to self medicate with narcotic pain killers so anything addictive like benzos are out.
