I normally post on the chronic pain board. But for awhile I've had concerning symptoms. I don't know if Im just a worry wart or if they should be taken as signs of something serious brewing. Lately, I've been really tired, have a upset or sour stomach, heart burn, heart palputations for many years that always jump started my panic attacks and I need to lose about 30 to 40 lbs. Also my cholestrol was border line high last time it was check. I never had it checked again to see if its in the normal range.
Should I be concern? What steps do I take to make sure I ask for the right test to see if there is a problem?

Hey, Jessica! Make a list of your concerns and symptoms. Take the list with you to the doctor. This will ensure all your concerns are covered. Begin by eating better and maybe going for walks. I'm not a doctor but that's where I would start. Also, you may want to post on the anxiety forum. The heart palpitations and upset stomach may be due to anxiety.
