I just wanted to sympathize and tell you that that is exactly what I feel like I'm going thru right now. You may have read my earlier post, but in recent months I've gone through 2 visits to the urgent care with EKG's, Xrays, and blood tests, an ER visit for terrible chest pain, which I swore was GERD related, 12 weeks of PPI's, an endoscopy, and a 48-hr ph test that came back and said I am normal and fine and have no GERD. The GI nurse told me that I shouldn't be having heartburn and just to go back to my PCP and start over. I almost felt like she told me I was just making it all up! I am so extremely frustrated right now about the constant congestion, throat clearing, pain, and swelling in my throat that I'm feeling. I have health anxiety too, and I just cannot shake the feeling that something is wrong, I just don't know what. I can't stop worrying about it!
I'm sorry to go off on my own rant, I just wanted you to know that I completely understand, and that you're not alone. Health anxiety definitely stinks!!!
