Hi, been suffering from very extreme anxiety for more than a year. It all started with a white coated tongue and visual problems and fatigue, which sent me into a spiral of anxiety. I have since developed other symptoms such as persistent, very mild headaches, pains in my shoulder and kidney region, hives rash (which as now gone after using a skin cream). In the worst and early period of my anxiety I suffered from frightening flashes and noise in my head when falling asleep (exploding head syndrome). I have had extensive neurological and kidney tests done which showed nothing. The diagnosis made by all the consultants involved (and my GP) is anxiety.
My exposures (3 or 4 oral sex exposures with female sex workers) were between 4 and 9 years ago, since then no more exposures whatsoever. I have had 3 negative biosure tests and 1 negative hiv antibody test (laboratory blood test). Doubts about my results are making me very, very anxious and depressed. Every new spot on my body, every cough or pain sends me into a new level of fear. I have read similar posts on PEBL but I am not sure how accurate my tests are given that my exposures date from many years ago.
