Hi, there. I agree with you. What you describe certainly does not sound like anxiety. It sounds like what it sounds like: some type of physical and/or neurological illness. It also sounds like your doctors are just grasping at straws because they can't figure out the real problem! I won't waste your time with my definition of anxiety--you can look it up online sometime if you're curious--but especially the way you describe yourself as a person in general, this doesn't seem to fit an anxiety disorder. If I were you, I would get a second opinion from a different doctor, and another one, and another one if I had to, until I found one who could figure out what is REALLY wrong. These docs. have medical degrees--some need to be more diligent in finding correct diagnoses!! I wish you all the best.
I will have to disagree--although it doesn't sound like traditional anxiety it COULD be anxiety.

There are people who thought they had MS and ended up with a severe case of anxiety. You must at least get a second opinion but do NOT be surprised if it really is anxiety. There are many who are anxious about having neurological disorders and they end up feeling neurological symptoms; some fear heart problems and have symptoms that mimic heart problems.

I'm not saying you have anxiety but IT IS A POSSIBILITY--good luck.
Hello, there. Keep in mind second opinions, too! There are usually several neurologists to select from. If you know anyone in health care (like a relative who's a nurse in the area you live in, etc.), you could always ask around to see if anyone could recommend a good neurologist for you, or look up the neurologists online to find out their backgrounds, i.e., how long they've been practicing, etc. (longer length of practice does not necessarily equal better doctor--sometimes the reverse is what's true, because they know all of the latest info. for treatments, etc.). Anyway, I would get a second opinion if I were you, but that's just me! Take care.
