Vincent - I am sorry for all your troubles. But it sounds like your anxiety is out of control. I unserstand your frustration with your p-doc, but your p-doc may well feel that you are so anxious and apt to imagine symptoms from medications, that he doesn't know what do to. You must realize that your physical symptoms are mostly vague, anxiety produced hyperchondrias. Do you see a therapist? That might help. To see a therapist and work through some of your fears with someone on a regular basis. I think your idea about joining a group is very good. YOu will be able to get out of yourself for an hour or so and get some perspective from others. It seems that you have hunkered down with all your fears and hyperchondrias and are now afraid of doing anything. You need to get out and talk to someone. Therapy would probably help a lot!
Good luck to you!
