Physical Symptoms - no diagnosis!

For the past two months my husband has been experiencing numerous physical symptoms including chronic head and neck pain (which started suddenly). In addition, he gets "attacks" where his heart races, limbs go numb, he gets dizzy and lightheaded, strange eye sensations and is very irritable. He's also "borderline" diabetic. At times his blood sugar peaks to 16 - although the diabetes tests are also negative. He's seen his family physician, and has undergone a battery of tests (blood work, ultrasound, CT Scan, physical, urine tests etc.) but all of the tests have shown up negative. He's been referred to a neurologist and interal medicine doctor, but those appointments are months away. Because of these symptoms he's unable to work (as he works with heavy machinery) and has been very depressed because he feels like "it's in his head." At first, I doubted too but I've seen the physical symptoms as well. Could this be psychological?

Please help us if you have any suggestions at all - we need relief!
