Question: I am having very strange physical medical symptoms (chest pain, arm and leg pins and needles, extreme dizziness, fatigue, constant burping) and have checked out OK in the ER. I've been told its anxiety. I have these symptoms all day long and I can't pinpoint anything that would bring on anxiety. Would anxiety cause these types of physical symptoms all day long?

Brief Answer:
Yes it can

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

All the symptoms that you have stated could be attributed to anxiety disorder. Especially when all the lab and cardiac work has come out normal. Infact anxiety can have a varied presentation and its not necessarily associated with stress. It may even stay for days together unless you get treated properly. You have not mentioned the tests that you have undergone. Have you undergone serum calcium levels, serum electrolyte levels, serum B12 levels and echocardiography test. These are some things one should seriously think about.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.

I have had the Echo (and 24hr heart monitor, multiple ECGs, blood testing) but I'm not sure about the calcium, electrolyte, or b-12 tests. What would those tests indicate? Deficiencies?

Hello
Yes these may indicate deficiency of these trace components which can lead to the mentioned symptoms.
Hence it would be better to get them examined.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
