If you've been told it's anxiety and you say you do suffer anxiety, the first question would be, have you tried anything to treat it? Ever tried therapy with a psychologist who specializes in anxiety treatment, for example? Ever tried meditation? Now, I have to say, if you say you're suffering "horrible" pain and that's accurate, that would be unusual -- anxiety can cause a lot of things because of the stress it puts on us and the hyper focus we put on our bodies and symptoms, but often there is a physiological explanation for things that doctors don't find it easy to find. They are particular bad at diagnosing the hard to find things, such as thyroid problems or hidden viruses or infections, for example, or nutritional deficiencies. But if everyone is telling you it's anxiety, getting treatment and overcoming it makes everything go away, that would tell you it was anxiety, and anxiety attacks are really traumatic. When this stuff gets chronic, it gets harder and harder to fix, so I do recommend the most thorough physical examination with the best doc you can find but also you need to treat the anxiety. If you are getting so bad your life is getting way off, your therapist will send you to a psychiatrist for medication, because sometimes that's the only thing that works, but it is your choice how to approach this. My main point is, if it is anxiety, dealing with it sooner is a lot better.
