Ill keep it as short as possible. 3 years ago, I almost passed out while at a restaurant. Over the course of the next 3 years, I was in and out of doctors offices getting tested for heart, head and other issues. I had every test known to man...MRI,EEG,EKG,CT,Ultrasound, Bloodwork to the nth degree and the list goes on and on. Finally after nothing was found, I was diagnosed with Anxiety. I was put on Lexapro and given Xanax for 8 months with no relief. I got off of them and have been trying to fight this diagnosis head on with limited/no success. From the moment I wake up in the morning until I fall asleep at night, I have a mild head pressure, slight headache and am slightly lightheaded. When stressed or some times for no apparent reason, my heart will race, I will have chest pains and feel like I am going to pass out.

The frequency of these occurences has been cut down significantly( Maybe Twice a week now) by drastically changing my lifestyle over the course of the last 3 years. Quit smoking, quit drinking, excercise daily and have been eating right. Despite my efforts, the 24 hour symptoms persist and while I should feel on top of the world at a young age and in really good shape, there are times that I feel so close to death. I stopped going to the doctor about 6 months ago after I was told repeatedly that this was all in my head and if I refused to take the medicine, there was nothing else that can be done. I have extensively researched Anxiety and feel like I understand the disease well, but what I can't figure out is why I have these 24/7 symptoms. 99% of people I talk to with anxiety have sporadic symptoms, but not constant. Anyone else out there that can offer any re-assurance that this is infact anxiety and that can relate to the 24/7 symptoms with not a single day of relief in 3 years? Living life like this is exhausting and I'm at a loss on how to fix this thing. I don't take joy in anything anymore, because everyday its the same symptoms making anything and everything difficult to enjoy. Despite a great family(two boys) and an awesome job, I can't enjoy my life feeling like this. I need help!
