Consistent painful pulse

I've had pain in my armpits, chest, and behind my knees for a month or more. While it may not be related to my pulse, it feels like the pain originates from veins/arteries. I've had many visits to the doc about a problem that hasn't quite gone away yet (http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=41824), and to sum that thread up, they did a bunch of tests (including heart-related ones) and told me all shows up normal. He noted I have a bounding pulse.

I hardly feel hungry, though I eat out of habit anyway. I've had anxiety since I was in fifth grade, but I've learned to suppress most of the outward effects of it like hyperventilation, so it's difficult to tell when pain/discomfort is brought about by anxiety or a legit reason.

Anyway, just curious what you all might make of it (check that thread I pasted above if you want to see recent health concerns of mine).

In that post I state that the ultrasound showed everything as OK, but when I requested the records to give to a urologist, they had noted that my gallbladder had a .5cm x .6cm 'defect' compatible with a polyp. Why did they not mention this? Could this have anything to do with what I'm feeling now?
