Hi. New to the app. Have generalized anxiety diagnosis and extreme health anxiety surrounding COVID. Been through lots of trial and error with meds and ultimately off of all of them at the moment with the exception of propanolol, a beta blocker for blood pressure. I’m really struggling and always feeling sick but when I go to doctor it’s never anything. I’m wondering if there is a test or bloodwork that I can suggest to find out if there is anything chronic going on. It’s been about a year of feeling sick on top of the major anxiety. I need to figure out whether anxiety is making me feel this way or an underlying issue. What do you suggest that I do/test for?

      @Malpal I'm not sure there are specific blood tests for autoimmune issues. I think doctors may take other symptoms into consideration for that. Are you vaccinated for Covid? If you are you can rest assured that your symptoms should you catch it would be rather mild.

      Does your Dr perform any blood tests? That would be the first thing. Did you have Covid? You can be physically ill from anxiety though.

        @Suze my doc ordered labs for vitamin levels and such but I wasn’t sure if there are tests that can be ordered to check for chronic or autoimmune? I never had COVID but my anxiety is extreme fear over getting it or my kids or family Members getting it
