Hey all,

This is my first post, as I've been lurking around here for a while.

The past four months have been the worst of my life. Constant achiness all over, electric-type jerks and jolts whenever I try to sleep, stomach upset after nearly every meal, constipation, and ubiquitous headaches. I've had bloodwork done a couple times, EKGs, a headscan. I've spent three months trying to eat better, eliminating caffiene, exercising regularly, and trying anti-depressants and massage. Nothing has helped - everything keeps getting worse. And NO ONE will listen.

All anyone can tell me is that I suffer from anxiety. This is hardly news. Wouldn't the more alarming development be if I had experienced all these things and WASN'T anxious?

I guess I'm just curious if this combination of symptoms sounds familiar to anyone else - and if some kind of latent anxiety could conceivably cause any or all of these things... ?

Desperate in KY,
