I am 26 y/o female and since 11/08 I've been sick.I have no appetite. Headaches ,abdominal pain ,acid reflux and quick sudden sharp pain in muscles. And through all of this i can't sleep, i started getting panic attacks so sever that i really believe I'm having a heart attack.I never had any thing like this ever before. but since then this has come in waves. Every couple of moths or so i get really bad and i lose a lot of weight really fast when it starts. i feel like i am going crazy i had blood work for anemia and thyroid. I had an EKG and cat scan of my intestines but nothing seem to be wrong. Please help me.
