In the begining of all my anxiety, I had all of the classic sx. (I thought I had AIDS)(I do not- but it took me years to believe that).
I always was short of breath, dizzy, and all of that. I took meds until I got pregnant. Then, after having my two girls, I started to have more health anxiety. First, I thought it was a brain tumor, and I only had headaches, twitching of my eye, blurred vision, and dizzyness. After that, I was sure I had a heart problem, and my only sx was palps, rapid heartbeat, lightheadness, short of breath. I had a stress test, echocardiogram, (slight mvp) wore a halter for a day, and had a Cardiolite, and then a angiogram, only because I had some chest pain. All came back fine. I went to the DR. sure that I had ms, numbness, tingling, weak legs, backache, they gave me some niravam, all sx went away. hmmmmmmm Now, my family has a step mom who had a brain anurysm burst a few weeks ago, and she is in a coma, and I have looked it up on the internet, and just today, I have some of the very same sx. I seem to take on something new, and that is exactely where my anxiety is. I really do believe health anxiety will make you take on sx dealing with conditions you think you have.
