Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 4 months ago.

Okay good.

could it be anxiety?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I am not sure
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 4 months ago.

The fact that it is worse in crowds makes me think it is probably anxiety

especially if you take no meds that could affect it and your labs were normal
