There is a full list of symptoms somewhere on the forum. You should see that. It shows you what anxiety can do to people. Your list, alone is long enough. Let us see if others can put their own lists together.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Perhaps, you could burn the list & affirm that you are ridding your body of ALL symptoms???
