Health anxiety, dizziness, ear pressure, shortness of breath, constipated, rapid heart rate, had CT MRI scan bw EKG chest stomach xray all normal. Anxiety?
Possibly: I agree with dr. Block about the need to fully evaluate your complaints, looking for possible "medical" causes. However, anxiety disorders are medical causes also -- having physical, emotional, and cognitive symptoms and effects. With "health anxiety" [your words] you're likely to interpret any physical sensation as a sign of serious physical illness -- when the anxiety itself needs treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
