Hi, I am 32 yo male. I have posted here before. I am still a bit scared. This has been going on for a little over 4 months now. I do smoke a littlen no drinking and have very good cholestorol levels, Started with some racing heart one night. Next day i didnt feel well. Abdominal pains all over. Was prescribed some aciphex for acid reflux. Didnt really help. Two days later went to er because i was having chest pains. Did a EKG, bloodwork, chest xray. I have had a total of 7 or 8 ekgs and bloodwork, chest xrays at er and all were fine. They said Gerd and anxiety. I have been to the er 5 times for chest pain, everything was normal. Treadmill stress test, endoscopy, Mri of c-spine, coronary calcium screening (scored 0). Numerous bloodworks, xrays, Ct scan of abdomen and pelvis. I was diagnosed with esophogitis and diverticulosis, some mild bulging of c-spine disks at c3,c4,c5. Doc says no nerve impengment. All were normal besides a few small issues that i probably would have never found out about without these tests. The pains i have had are usually very localized. They never travel from chest to jaw or chest to arm or such. They are usually sharp or a throbbing pain. usually lasting only a few seconds at a time or sometime for a few mins. But they do come back many times everyday.

I have had chest, neck, arms, hands, legs, headaches, finger pains, jaw, toothaches, bottom of feet. I do admit at the beginning and up until a month ago or so i was having serious anxiety issues with all of this. I have probably been to the multiple dr. visits 30 or so times in 4 months.

The last serious anxiety attack i had was one month ago. I started feeling kind of weird so i sat down and didnt feel quite right so i stood up and walked away. My heart started racing super fast. My left arm went numb and had some tunnel vision for a few secs. My boss called 911. by the time they got there i felt better. My HR and BP were down and the numbness went away. Since then i have felt mentally fine but am still having all the pains i have described.

I dont feel anxious anymore but still have the pains. I usually dont have anypains when i am busy. Usually when i am less busy i have these. I can go out and pushmow the yard when its 100 degrees out and be totally pain free. But when i take a break and sit down within a while my pains will reapppear.

I am currently on xanax, nexium and some BP meds. Seen a counselor a couple of weeks ago but do not get to see a real therapist until end of september. I really dont think this is anxiety but i guess that is part of the process?

Please if you have any ideas please post them.

Thanks alot!
