    Lets start with my physical symptoms. For about 4 months I have been experiencing chest pressure or upper abdominal pressure. Then I started to get these odd aches right at the base of my skull in my neck and odd throbbing nervy like headache just on the right back side of my head. Then came the burning sensations. Throughout my entire body. Now pain in my testes and rectum. Also a full feeling in intestines. I've had MRI of the brain, chest xray, neck X-ray, ct scan of the neck numerous blood tests, urine analysis... Etc. My doctor is telling me it's anxiety. However the symptoms have come on so gradually and progressively I don't understand how it could be related to anxiety. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced these types of symptoms. Thanks. I feel like my doctor is not looking hard enough.

    If you doctor says its anxiety then try to get rid of it by taking some medicines. Ask you doctor to give some medication and see if you feel any difference.
