Hi,thanks for query.Whether you have done investigations for enlarged gland on neck ? your doctors could be right about having anxiety.The blood in split could be due to acidity problem.Take light diet,stop worrying too much,try relaxation technique like meditation.take antacid specially at bad time.bye.

My ECG, TMT and CK-MB are perfectly normal. I have anxiety issues, and taking medication for that, . I am 21 years old, female. I have a pretty healthy lifestyle. I eat well. But at times, when I feel anxious, my left arm starts aching, my shoulder or even my neck at times, I feel breathless, chest pain is there which is on any side, left, middle or right. There is chest tightness, nausea at times, light-headedness, numb feeling in feet and fatigue. Are these due to anxiety? Or symptoms of heart attack?

Hi everyone :).(sorry, for my english. It isn t my first launguage) My story is long but i ll resume it the better i could cause my english is not good enough yet. i m a 19 years old psychology student (i m a girl) and I have an anxiety disorder and i m obsessive compulsive specially with my health since i was 14. I ve always felt sharp pains in chest, arrythmias, constipation, weird feeling in my throat, pressure in my head, headaches, numbness etc and i ve had a crisis since 2 years ago, i had a ct scan at that moment and it was normal, my blood tests are also normal and my ECG and ecocardiography are excellent . But the last months/weeks i m getting worse my head is heavy when i move it or bend down mostly on the right side and sometimes it hurts, i feel nausea, drowsiness, dizzines, numbness in the right side of my face like my eyelid is heavy and i m afraid i m gonna have ptosis. I also feel weakness on my right hand. Can it be a brain tumour or just my anxiety disorder? I m really scared because someone of my neighborhood had the same symptoms and it was a brain tumour and she died in 10 months :( And all stories i found in the web are freaking me out because it always has to do with brain tumours, aneurysms, etc HELP ME PLEASE (hope you had understood)
