    • a few days ago I got some ear ringing and I couldnt sleep because of it, so I immediately consulted dr google, and now I am left with stomach turning anxiety after I read about tinnitus and heard what people on tinnitus forums say   I ran to a real doc and he told me I have an ear inflammation and gave me ear drops. But now I cant accept what he says, it feels like he does not know or like an inflammation does not explain it.   I wish big time the doc is right but my anxiety wont let me settle
    • Hi everyone Just thought I would come on here for some advice or support as I quite literally think I might go insane from all this stress! I am sure some of you are aware that I have a chronic cough in the night time, waking me, Dr has given me a high dose of PPI's which helped the cough for a bit but it has started all over again over the last few evenings. During the day my throat is scratchy and just tight so I am not feeling wonderful, more annoyed than anything else really... BUT, yesterday I went to Emergency as the left side of leg under the knee protruding to the right side has a swell or puffiness if you like, the DR reckons its probably fluid retention but to make sure she did a serious of DVT pathway blood tests including kidney. liver and FBC (I have had several DVT's and PE's), the D-Dimer test was normal and everything was basically normal however I noticed my WBC on the screen which has shot up from 7.2 (reading in December 2016) to 8.9 yesterday WTF is going on? Can anyone shed some light? I am now 100% convinced I have lung cancer or some cancer growing else where!!!!!! I am going back to the Dr next week..... Can you please help me calm down Thank you 
    • Hi Pink socks, I had some of the symptoms that you mentioned above - body aches overthinking and sleep issues. I also have problem focusing on tasks and I drifted in and out of them. IT could be thing as simple as grocery shopping. I could be staring at my list and the items just did not register in my mind. Eventually, I went to see a therapist who specialised in EMDR whom addressed the root of my problems.  Did you see a doctor or a therapist about this? Depending on how severe your anxiety, your doctor or therapist will be able to advice or prescription medication that help you to cope.  Hope this helps! Take care and be well. Praying for you. God bless!   
    • Went to my doctor about 3 weeks ago he said "most people don't realize palpatations in most cases are stress related."  You are suffering anxiety which is a form of stress. Palpatations moved me to go to the ER and cost me thousands of dollars since I was between insurance. If you're truly concerned visit a PCP who can check and reassure your. Even if you don't have insurance it's better to spend a couple hundred dollars than a few thousand like I did.
