My doctor took blood tests and said that I didn't have it, but my anxiety
had reached a stage where I convinced myself that he was lying to me. My anxiety
presented itself with lots of physical symptoms, panic attacks, joint pain, muscle pain, nausea, dizziness, upset stomachs, vision distortion etc. I've also developed a very strong fear of death.
Through therapy and 6 months of sertraline I've improved a little, but recently had a swollen finger which I went to my doctor with.
