hey all, well here is my story, i have anxiety, panic attacks, health phobias. i recentlly got off my paxil around 3-4 months ago, and i have in the past had some sort of back problems, espesially this time of the year, and this is also when my anxiety works it slef in really good. anyways about 5 weeks ago my back started to ache its the upper and middle back mostly, and the front of my chest aches a bit also, but i knotice that problem like i said around this time for the last few years. i went to see my dr. and he put me on some strong anti inflamatories. they helped a little bit, but then alls they did was give me a sore stomach and make me have diareah. i went and seen him like 3 times in the last month, the last time i was getting worried and scared( like i said i have health phobias). so i asked him about lung cancer and this and that he said he thinks it is a mechanical thing , so i asked to be sent for xrays anyhow, they xrayed my spine and lungs and everytthing was fine. i had to ask him to be refered to our physiothereapy here in my town. i knotice wehn i sit on my heating pad it releives my back pain, and when i apply heat rub(A535 to my chest it relieves my aching. i read a few simalair articles and seems like it might be tesion, stress related. i have a prescription for xanax, and when i get anxious about this worrying about my back and stuff i get all worked up and take a xanax, it seems to make my aching go away, this is another reason i was thinking maybe this was anxiety and tension related. i have been seeing the same doctor for a few years now, he has helped me out alot. but when i have a new thing wrong with me i quesiotn his findings and wonder if he is just thinking to himself that i am just having ANOTHER axiety and health phobia issue.. when i lay down on my AIR matress at night i have NO back pains whatsoever and my middle chest is good aslo. and wheni wake up in the morning i am good, then about an hour later after doing stuff and thinking about my health issue i start to ache again. and could my air matress be doing this also?...LOL.i do have a bed. but i like to lie in my livingroom in front of my tv and watch it late at night. i have been doing this for over a year now. so if anyone could give me some insight to this..PLEASE do so. and i could always use a friend to chat with about anything. i use msn messenger thanks to you all. later Francis

fdm,

Welcome to HW there is a great group of individuals here.

I am not sure what to tell you other than perhaps you need to spend some time using some relaxation techniques and breathing exercises.

I Think that what you are feeling is your anxiety I get the samething of the back and chest pain from the muscules being tense and I feel that it's just your anxiety kicking in and you might want to remove your e-mail from your post but you can leave it in your sig. box as it opens you up to spamers

so what is there i can do?. is the heating pad and stuff actually doing worse?. ive been contampliting staying on xanax for a few days and keeping myself all mellowed out and stress free. i dont know what to do anymore, i have kids and a gf, but sometimes a person cant take anymore. later, and thanks for the replys. oh and freezinginUK, do you get like that for a month straight with the aching back and chest?. it feels like all my muscles in my chest and back are tender and so sore, ive actually caught my self tensing up just sitting there, and i relax and i feel  my muscle loosen up. what a life

  Over 12 years now I been dealing with it, heat helps alot and I get really tired from it I think I've tryed just about everything for it and I been taking valium for years now and it helps so xanax should help you out but I all so have CNS damage so mine is a life long thing but it sounds like yours is from your anxiety and you my try some type of relaxation techniques that will help you out.
