Many people "freak out" over aches and pains. It is the nature of anxiety and panic attacks to cause these fears. Looking through the posts you will find that anxiety can cause all kinds of symptoms.
May I ask why your on Coumadin?
Stay with us and keep posting.
I am glad to hear that your off the Coumadin so that med is out of the picture. If I would have read closer, you did say that in your original posted. I am sure I am older then you and my brain is slow lol.
I have learned to live with aches and pains as I used to get all worried only to find out I was fine. If it is something major then seek medical attention.
Keep posting and reading. We support you.

Good Morning at Wits End,
My daughter has had atypical cells on Pap smears and I went through all of what you are going through with her.
They waited and repeated pap and the results were the same. Now let me try to relieve some of your anxiety. A coloposcopy is not as bad as some would have you think. It is uncomfortable but when it is over it is done.
Colposcopy, diagnostic technique, involves using a binocularlike instrument called a colposcope to get a magnified view of the surface of the cervix. The examination can be done during a routine pelvic exam. (Source: Brunner and Suddarth, Ninth Edition)
I have had the cervical biopsy in the clinic and the novacaine was the ouch, after that you feel nothing. My daughter had the colposcopy in clinic and she was so anxious I thought she would not be able to walk into the clinic but we both made it.
Results were negative for any cancer on both of us.
Some women are prone to atypical cells, they can have clear Paps and then have an atypical again so it is just fine to be concerned and anxious but don't dwell on the worse, stay in the middle of the road.
Take care of you and many hugs coming your way.
In the past ten years off and on I have had panic attacks I have taken ekg's most recent was 11/16/2006 and the most recent blood test was 128/80 and I was told many years ago from a doctor I suffer from panic/anxiety. Four to five years ago I had bad attacks and took a ekg twice within a two week period and blood test that check everything it could check and the doctor said the results were fine. Now the tingly feeling in the head freaks me out but i never have had any pain EVER. Hell the tingly scares me more then anything please give advice
