It's not necessarily all in our heads.  Many, if not most of us experience very real symptoms.  The problem is that we attribute those symptoms to diseases other than anxiety.

I agree with pat.

additionally--anxiety/stress sets off the fight/flight response.  this will sett off physical issues too.  what happens is anxious thinkers freak out with fight/flight which only perpetuates the problems.  at some point fight/flight can develop such a hair trigger that it will go "off" for seemingly no reason at all.

what I said above is explained very simplistically.  not only that the why's of anxiety is a complex process.  there are no short answers.

MOST anxiety occurs on a 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
