Well, Stephanie, since I am the scardy-cat who called 911 for the first time in my life about 2 months ago after my first experience with racing pulse and shortness of breath after climbing a flight of stairs, you'll get nothing but agreement from me on your hypothesis about anxiety.

I have had many illnesses or conditions that scared me over the course of my life, but anemia surprised me, especially because I really had to fight to be taken seriously about my symptoms. On top of it, I was also fighting another health battle at the same time with my herniated disk problem. It really drew all my attention to it because it hurts all the time and wrecks my sleep. I feel like even _I_ was taking my eye off the ball with anemia. And when things got really bad with these heart and energy symptoms, I got the heck scared out of me.

I am being treated with acupuncture for my anxiety and it's even helping me a little with the back pain. And I can't sleep without my relaxation music available on my mp3 player in case I get the adrenaline "punch" as I fall asleep. Yes, the anxiety has really surprised me with anemia.
