    What is the Problem?

    So, I have seen the doctors about twice: ER and a complete physical... Blood test, EKG, and CT scan of the brain have all been done. I had symptoms where I would feel my heart beating... not faster or slower, I just noticed it.. From then on I would concentrate on it and feel it all the time.. that accompanied some tingling (kind of like pins and needles) feeling in my fingers and sometimes hand.. they last about a second and they go, and it happens a few times a day.. along with that, my legs and arms feel like they move slower but there not weak.. just kind of feels like its slow but there is no weakness or pain.. I also get some burning sensations and tensions.. and headaches.. the doctor said from all of the test, that it was anxiety due to all the symptoms coming after a stress week at school... Ideas???

    Also.. my eyes have done some weird things to me.. and there are times when I experience at least one symptom for the whole day

    The doctors have ruled out a lot of health problems associated with anxiety is seems with the physical, blood test, EKG, and CT scan. They have also said that you were experiencing physical sensations from this anxiety. I would see someone specialized with anxiety to get help with that. I know that physical happenings linked back to the mind may seem strange, but it does happen to the best of us. Sometimes we don't even know what is stressing us out so much. Though, It seems the doctors have done what they could, so I would suggest seeking out a mental health specialist.

    I too would feel the same few years ago. I could actually feel my heart beating and some tingling in my fingers but then it would go away after some time. I think you should seek a mental health specialist.
