Can't tell what's real anymore
« on: March 22, 2014, 11:44:11 PM »
I have these two spongy welts on my hand and they only hurt if you press on them and the doctors, specialists included, aren't sure what they are. Bloodwork basically showed nothing, X-Ray showed nothing. I'm getting am MRI on Thursday.

But there are now these like aches in my hand I feel, like a general soreness, and not just there but all over in random spots on my body and I can't help but think they're connected to my hand. During my panic attacks my chest pains were bad enough I went to have an EKG which showed nothing.

So I was hoping, is there some ways at all to tell when a symptom is real or when your mind is MAKING something happen? How can I separate fact from anxiety?

I wish I knew how also, you just have to take a deep breath and work through it.

I was afraid of that, it's difficult to describe your symptoms to a doctor when half the time you think you're not even in the right mind, and you probably aren't.

A pic wouldn't really show anything unfortunately aside from some redness. It's the sort of think you need to feel, not really see.

My mom thinks it's gout or something like that. But they'd have probably checked for that, right? They checked for rheumatoid arthritis and found nothing. The only thing in my blood unusual was a slightly higher-than-average liver enzyme count.

One of my friends think these welts are literally stress induced. Does it sound like they may be nothing? I'm new to this whole state of mind.
