Doctor : Anxiety neurosis is a diagnosis of exclusion.
User : ok
Doctor : If doctor rules out both the condition by physical examination and test, then anxiety will be the appropriate diagnosis then.

I do... I had an Echo done...turns out one of my valves are smaller than what it should be...this causes poor circulation which can make your feet and hands get cold...mine turn blue sometimes...and then I have to rub them and do exercises to get my blood pumping...

I have mytrovalve prolapse syndrome where the valve between top & bottom chamber does not close properly and allows blood to flow backwards. I get dizzy when I stand suddenly and have to sit down to regain my balance. I kept walking one time when I got dizzy and I collapsed on the floor and had a simulated seizure where my arms and legs trembled for about 1 or 2 minutes then I was fine. This was due to not enough blood getting to my brain. You just have to sit back down when you get dizzy. I also have pain in ties and fingers when I get too cold and that is again circulation problems.
