Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. I can understand you. You should gain confidence that all your test reports came as negative and your doctors are sure you don't have to worry. You have to believe and trust them. Anxiety is fear without base and your health related anxiety is a bit more troubling. Health anxiety can produce weird symptoms along your body which may not have any scientific explanation. Exercise, yoga, meditationand psychotherapy shouldd be practiced along with medication for streamlining thinking process and life style. Cure is sure.

You need counseling and psychotherapy. I shall provide you with the required counseling and psychotherapy techniques online, to overcome these problems. Please describe the whole problem in detail and post a direct question to me.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
