Please allow me to introduce myself...
« on: April 16, 2014, 06:23:46 PM »
Hi there - I'm a 41 year old man who's been dealing with anxiety issues for over 20 years.  Over that time, first with a printed copy of the Merck manual, later with help :P of Google, I've researched symptoms, second-guessed doctors, and in the process developed a decent case of health anxiety. 

Tight muscles, headaches, GERD/reflux, palpitations (benign PVC/PAC confirmed from numerous heart studies over the years), and issues related to being out of shape, overweight, and bound to a desk, lead me to constant worry that I'm going to drop dead due to a heart attack.  "gold standard" SPECT heart imaging two years ago, on top of normal treadmill tests, holters, etc. hasn't calmed those fears.

I'm currently in the middle of a fresh cycle, and look forward to sharing my battle experiences and learning from everyone here.

Wow I am 23, but your post literary feels like I wrote it. Except for the PVC/PAC, I have every symptom you are experiencing. Ive only been dealing with my major anxiety for over a year now. It has been a living nightmare, but im better now than I was.
