I have recently been told by my PCP, a Neurologist, and a Cardiologist that I probably have an anxiety disorder! 8 weeks ago I had an accident involving my 3 month colt resulting in a foot injury with broken toes and a kick to left side of chest. I wasn't even going to go to doctor but my family insisted! Typically I just weather an injury through and go on. I have a high pain threshold. I have fibromyalgia.
After being given shot for tdap, pain killers and antibiotics I was sent on my way. After a few days I started having shortness of breath and rapid heartbeat with exertion, extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, fullness to left neck and jaw, and left eye pain. I have had a eye twitch to my right eyelid for over a year or more that has steadily increased. I have had a stress echo, pulmonary function studies, Neuro work up with EEG and brain MRI, CT of chest and numerous labs. Alk phos slightly low, neutrophils low, lymphocytes high, TSH slightly high with normal T4, all other blood work normal, bump, CBC, Ana, ear, crp, cpk,. So with all the normal results I am told I have an anxiety disorder... Really? If I do then besides suggesting i go to a psychiatrist why has nothing else been done for this "anxiety"? I am definitely anxious now! Anyone out there have any words?View Thread
