hi everyone OK here is my story,sorry for the long post , but i need help, if anyone has this please let me know...i suffer with anxiety for about 3 years now,in 1998 i was diagnosed with PSS (Posner-Schlossman Syndrome )its pressure in the eye that cause my eye(left eye) to hurt and throb i can see through it but its like looking throu a white sheer cloth.they would treat it me with prednisone and cospt ,that would help and it goes away it would come back at times within a couple of months sometimes once or twice a year..but i managed to keep it under control with reg eye visits to the eye doc...in 2008 my anxiety problem started ,it is the worst feeling ever...feels like your haveing a heart attack..but right now im here because im having more anxiety and it putting me in a very depressed mode..i have 4 childern youngest being a year and half..
last week i had an anxiety attack and got so fed up I wanted answers...i would get the weird feeling of a whirlpool sensation in my head(no pain) with what i would say lite headedness to, i aslo get a warm rush through my body while im having the attack..my heart beats at 1000 beats per min. and feels like its going to jump right out of my body..then the shakes start..this can last to 5 mins or hours.I ALSO GET THE PINS AND NEEDLES AT TIMES IN MY HANDS, WHEN IM STRESSED OR ABOUT TO HAVE AN ANXIETY ATTACK..but im getting a little bit better i think . i try to control it with breathing..well anyways, last week like i was saying i got feed up and had my husband take me to the ER..of course they look at you like your crazy..i was even snaping at the nurse taking care of me.because she was telling to just take meds..stupid people i was on meds made me feel worst and couldent sleep for days..so i went off...im pretty much sane ..and tring to handle it on my own! once i get called into the ER room..they did every test i guess..blood , xray of my lungs...and the infamous cat scan that brought me to this site :( . As im waiting for my test results im soooo nervous..they come back and tell me that everything was fine all theu test results were NORMAL...blood ,xray and cat scan..as im leaving i wanted copies of the reports for everything...so my doc can see them! so i get home ans i start researching them...blood was good.. xray was good to..but the cat scan has me a little worried..thus is the whole report :

CT of the head
this study was performed without contrast
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ACUTE INTRACRANIAL HEMRRHAGE OR ACUTE
TERRITORIAL INFARCT. THE VENTRICLES ANS SUBARACHNOID SPACES ARE NORMAL IN SIZE. A SUBCENTIMETER HYPODENSE FOCUS IS VISUALIZED IN THE RIGHT CENTRUM SEMIOVALE (AXIAL 21 ). THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF MASS EFFECT OR MIDLINE SHIFT. THE CISTERNAL SPACES ARE PRESERVED .
THE VISUALIZED PARANASAL SINUSES AND THE MASTROID AIR CELLS ARE CLEAR.

PRELIMINARY
IMPRESSION :

NO EVIDENCE OF ACUTE INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGE OF THE TERRITORIAL INFARCT.

SUBCENTIMETER HYPODENSITY IN THE RIGHT CENTRUM SMEIOVALE IS NOTED,NONSPECIFIC. FURTHER EVALUATION MAY BE PERFORMED WITH MRI OF THE BRAIN WITH .(IF NO CONTRAINDICATION TO MRI).

ok so this is what the whole report read...so what do i do !!! i goolge it..and it talked about the white gray matter...i have no idea what that was until i googled it, and it kinda of kept coming back to MS..which now im scared sh**less..

i have all the symtoms of anxiety..but whats scaring me is they also are similar to ms to...then i look back to my eye problem in my left eye...dont they say what ever happens to one side of the brain effects the other..my left eye is the one with the problem..is that a sign and is that the same eye symtoms ms gives ?

** also im sooo scared to take the GADOLINIUM because of the serious side effects they warm about...what should i do..if anyone can help.please reply. IS THIS A SIGN OF MS?..
