Hi! I'm brand new to this forum and still figuring out how everything here works.

Has anyone else with OCD or anxiety experienced constantly feeling physically ill for seemingly no reason? It all started when I was 14. I started getting a choking sensation like I couldn't breathe. I've had the more "traditional" OCD symptoms since 4th grade, like hand washing and being afraid to touch things I deemed contaminated, but the breathing thing abruptly crashed into my life and made things all the worse. It's been many years since than, and I'm an adult now, but I still haven't gotten better. It manifests in different ways. Sometimes I can't breathe, sometimes I'm nauseous or dizzy. Sometimes I even feel like I'm gonna pass out. No physical cause has ever been found. I've had EKG's, an MRI, blood tests... No physical cause at all it seems. I've lived with this problem for many years, but I can't get used to it. It affects my relationships with my family, friends, and I have trouble working and going to college. Medications have had mixed affects, but nothing has put a huge dent in it. Is it somehow related to my OCD or anxiety? It's been a huge mystery that just eats away at my ability to function properly.

Do you think this sensation is due to anxiety? Could it be a panic attack? I have had something similar in the past which I now think was a panic attack, even though I wasn’t feeling particularly anxious at the time. Like you I sought medical advice, but nothing was wrong with me, but I couldn’t stand up because I thought I would faint.
