It seems like you are in a difficult position, I am sure this situation is giving rise to many feelings. I am sure it is also not easy for your husband.

It sounds like he is dealing with feelings that relate to stress and anxiety. this may be as a result of his job or of his retirement or both. Retirement can often lead to stress as it is a big life change.

Let me know a little more information about where you are with your current doctor and what has been tried.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
