    • I remember around 12 or 13 years ago, I was sent to a Moh's surgeon to have a basal cell carcinoma removed from my nose. I remember asking the physician while I was there to look at a few other spots I had to make sure they looked OK. He said all looked good and I then apologized for maybe seeming a bit paranoid about the spots. He then responded to me and what he said I will never forget the rest of my life. He said, you are not being paranoid at all, and in fact a little paranoia may be good as far as your health goes as it may one day save your life. 
    • Hi. wingo. YUP, been there. I wore out many ECG machines years ago because I didn't believe what they came up with. When I look back it is rather laughable, although not so at the time!! Palpitations were my main concern. Still get them now and then especially when up tight about something, but just shrug them off because I know what they are and what causes them. We are tricked, bluffed and fooled by that great magician, anxiety. His box of tricks are endless. As soon as we call his bluff the quicker he will depart.
    • HI. Nick.  (my phyciasian told me that the pain is caused from scoliosis and poor posture, i doubt it), Now why would you doubt it? Do you know more about illness than your doctor? Have you been to medical school? This is a major problem in health anxiety because we doubt so much. The doubt so often stems from the fear that 'they' may have missed something. Now this is extremely unlikely these days because if they get it wrong their livelihood is at stake. When we lie down at night we can concentrate on our heart, and what seems to be pounding is no more than this. Some sufferers can't sleep on their left side because it accentuates the feeling. You have had almost every test possible, so begin to tackle the anxiety and not your supposed heart problem. ACCEPT that for the time being this will happen, but it's really no big deal, although it may seem so to you. We are bluffed and fooled by Mr. Anxiety and his box of tricks. Anxiety can mimic any known disease if it's in your mind.  If you didn't already know about it you wouldn't worry!! Calm ACCEPTANCE is still the answer, although difficult it does produce results. 
    • Odds are you don't have a stomach polyp. I would discuss your symptoms and concerns with your physician and then possibly a mental health care provider who may also help you feel better.
