Exam, then Tx: As the Dr said - have an exam. It's likely to be neg and you can the find a good Health psychologist to help you handle that type of anxiety. It's fairly common and very useful to resolve. Saves $ and stress and lets you know how to really trust yor sense of body signals. Don't worry - this may be a good way to get yourself into better condition.
