For those of you who don't know, I am finally going to the doctor TUesday!  So, my question is, he is aware of my high anxiety issues...does anyone know what I can expect.
When they are dealing with trying to find the cause of anxiety, and if it is anxiety, what kind of tests do they do, what will they be looking for?
Are there any specific tests I should assure that I get done?
Are there any specific questions I should ask?
I am getting nervous about this, guys, I have to admit!  So I am just looking for some comfort and assurance from my favorite anxiety friends...

This first appointment is with my PCP. I haven't had a pysical in a while, and it's like I need to be rediagnosed again, or something. I am looking into talking to a psych, but he wants me to have a pysical first.

Plus, I have been having some chest soreness that hurts when I touch on it, and I am not sure if that is from anxiety, something else, or what. I quit smoking about 2 months agao, and peole say it could be from that. I have heard a number of suggestions of what that could be, and it is time I get that looked at too.

Plus, I haven't been on meds for my anxiety in a while and with that flaring up again, I figured it would be best to get some help. Ya know what I am saying?
