I'm no doctor but am familar with anxiety disorders and typically people with GAD worry about everything money, social stuff, anything really. It defintely seems you have some sort of anxiety disorder and/or phobia of fearing to have it. You could also be suffering from panic disorder however which could be more likely to be your case. If you have thse physical symptoms then it's defintley real. I suggest you go see a phychiatrist who can correctly diagnose you with what your going through. They then can perscribe you medication to combat your anxiety and calm you. There are even medicines that can stop anxiety attacks. I would also suggest you get a therapist so you can work out the root of were this all started and techniques to calm yourself and take things in, in a new way. Your not alone with this alot of people suffer and I hope this helped.

You are not alone. Many, too many, people have similar experiences.

What has your doctor said? If you are not getting the help you feel you need from your doctor, maybe you could see another doctor or someone (psychologist, psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse, etc) who is very familiar with anxiety disorders and can be more helpful to you??
