I have colitis(on azathioprine/colazide) but seen specialist over that they say it isnt flared up and under control and probably not related, although vhaving scan in 6 wks as have been having lower pains from time to time.

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
From the description that you have given it appears that you are surely having anxiety symptoms. You might have noted yourself that your symptoms keep changing and are of transient in nature. It doesn't fall into any specific disease. You should visit your psychiatrist who can discuss carious treatment options with you:
1) Cognitive behavioural therapy
2) Medications like escitalopram, mirtazapine, venlafaxine, desvenlafaxine.
3) Propranolol and clonazepam will also help .
4) Regular exercise and proper diet will also help in long run.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you can close the discussion and rate the answer accordingly.

Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.

As per your details, you are possibly having underlying anxiety. For this consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation. Following treatment strategies would be helpful-

1) Antidepressants like SSRIs (escitalopram, sertarline, paroxetine etc)
2) Antianxiety agents like clonazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam etc
3) Psychotherapy/ Counselling sessions
4) Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, deep breathing etc

Hope it helps
Good luck

Dear, Nice to see you here in healthcaremagic.
Don't worry about your problems for they are not problems at all.
Our mind has a funny tendency to imagine physical problems.
Worrying about unncessay things and getting stressed about it.
That is called anxiety. When we worry about a situation which may or may not happen in future, it is called apprehension. Both combined, we have physical symptoms.
Yoga and meditation will definitely help.
Over and bove, calm your mind.
Tody there are no diseases which cannot be dignosed. If doctor said that you are totally alright, then you are.
Forget about your health. You are fit.
Good faith also cn help you.
Good luck.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There is nothing in your description to suggest any of the diagnostic possibilities, you have suspected and enumerated...
It sounds typical of generalised Anxiety Disorder - superimposed on 'colon' and 'conjunctiva' problems...
All your suspicions can be excluded by investigations - but they are cumbersome and not cost-effective
You will do well with Psychiatric assessment and assistance.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
