"Clean bill of health" but still feel somethings wrong.
« on: April 23, 2014, 02:57:07 PM »
Im so frustrated at this point. I keep having problems: symptoms include; muscle spasms, digestive (around the colon), bowel problems, eye problems (black dots and floaters) and more. I had a doctors visit today. As usual I was told it is due to anxiety and not much more. What I don't understand is why do I keep feeling symptoms and yet am told "you're fine". Im so frustrated and think something is seriously wrong and yet no one is taking it seriously. I don't understand why I keep feeling like this if "its just anxiety"  :traurig001:

I hear ya..   Anxiety can cause a lot of those symptoms.  Floaters and spots are normal so says my eye doctor.  Bowels could be a combo of worrying and maybe diet.  Some other non anxiety things that cause those problems are vitamin deficiencies.

If anything its all the muscle twitches I've been having. Not painful cramps, just involuntary muscle movements where I can see it moving. Its just all over my body and its scaring the crap out of me.

I have muscle twitching every day now, started 2 months into my totally insane bout of hypochondria. I know it's stress related. I get the twitches everywhere. Thighs, calves, outer foot, upper arm, even an occasional weird one in the abdomen. The thing to remember is, even when you don't think your anxious, your body still is. So if you're having twitches you're probably going to keep having them even for a while after your conscious anxiety has subsided. Just don't let them scare you. And also, the more you worry about the twitches, the worse they get! Trust me!

Well I will tell you that I've had and still do times all of the symptoms that you describe. I've also seen EVERY specialist and have had EVERY test imaginable. Floaters I get alot...both the neurologist and eye Dr say they are normal and I was fine after tests that I demanded...not that the drs thought I needed. I've been experiencing muscle twitching all over my body for three years now. Its calmed down a bit since I've accepted that its anxiety. Actually last month every part of my arm was twitching for 2 weeks straight. Try to trust the drs. (I know easier said then done). I still get terrible moments with symptoms, we are all in the same boat here.

If someone wrote a song about health anxiety, this would be the chorus.

We all know this feeling well, but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), it can't be trusted. 

Yes, I know tons of sick people claim they "just knew" something was wrong with them.  But how many of them had health anxiety, and how often have we all felt like this with health anxiety?

Surely there are some coincidences where a HA person feels that way and is right, but the majority of the time, it's just not a feeling that can be trusted with brains like ours.
