for the last 10 monthes I've been in so much pain.
Doctors have done the "million dollar workup" and all they could
find was positive antibodies for hsv2.
Started with a panic attack out of the blue.
then felt like a uti, however after numerous tests, there isn't one.
A urologist thought it was anxiety/stress induced irritated bladder.???
He said he's seen it many times. I was reluctant about that diagnosis.
However, the bladder pain seems to go hand in hand with these non-itchy red spots
I get on my forearms and torso. sometimes they are red lines. They appear, then dissapear.
One doc thought maybe its hsv2 reacting. I have never had any ulcer type soars...anywhere.
Then a thought came to me. I have been on Lorazepam(ativan) for 3 yers for sleep. .5mg a night.
could i have rebound anxiety from never upping my dosage? I have been getting strange panic? attacks lately. I think.
I'll be driving, and this rush of adrenalin comes mainly I feel it in my head. It scares the $%#@ out of me, makes my eyes strange, and I can't speak for a few minutes. Is that an anxiety attack?
One of the docs wanted me to try celexa. one pill and I was out of my mind with anxiety.
does anyone have ANY suggestions? what type of doc is best to see?
