hey everyone. I'm new to this but I figured i'd see what everyone thought and/or can relate.

I'm a normal 27 yr old male, have played hockey all my life and been very active. I've always lead a very healthy happy life. Until one day in late 2009 when i was out shopping. I experienced a weird tunnel vision type event that started my heart racing and feelings like i was going to pass out. I was sweating and dizzy. Typical anxiety attack type stuff I know. I went to the ER had was given a clean bill of health.

The problem is, I know the difference between what feeling normal is like and what going through a severe anxiety attack is like. What i feel on the day to day is terrible, and not a 24 hour anxiety attack. I have tried to explain this to my doctors. I keep getting told its anxiety.

My symptoms are the following- dizziness periodically, a weird heavy feeling in my head, clouded vision with sometimes seeing little floating circles, feelings of passing out ( which are VERY intense sometimes), burning sensations in my hands and feet. Fatugue. Lack of diet. ( Ive lost about 15 pounds the past two months) I'm 5'10 and 140 pounds.
anxiety attacks every so often. Trouble focusing. Neck Pain and feelings of derealization where i feel like i am not in control of my body. In the past two months I have developed a weird thing where after 2 hours of being asleep, I am awoken to my body sweating and feeling like it is on fire. Its SO scary I cant even explain it to you. I know have to take .25 xanax before bed to try and avoid it. It still happens.

I know this is long and I appreciate anyone who has read it and can give me feedback. Since this all started in San diego in sept of 09 I have seen many doctors.

Oto-neurolgist- 2 MRI's of brain with and without contrast
Neurologist- 1 mri of cervical spine
ER- Spinal Tap, CT scan, Blood work
Endocrinologist- Bloodwork
ENT- tried to diagnose me with meineres disease? but was ruled out with no ringing in my ears.
Allergist- nothing out of the normal
Regular MD- bloodwork, lymes, mono- negative

Is there anything I am missing??? I cant take this anymore. I feel worse everyday like my body is slowly deteriorating. Please help and advise if you can- Thank you so much
