    Well done, Verydifficult, and congratulations on one year quit.

    You have had these problems from the beginning and you have done the right thing in getting tests done through your GP.

    It is worth a thought that you could be suffering from something else similar to anxiety. Left numbness? is this in the arm or chest area. I have had trouble with pain in my left arm but this is due to picking up too many heavy things at one time I would suspect, because bursitis was the conclusions after ex-rays.

    Maybe you can suggest anxiety to your GP and what to do about it. In the meantime there are many natural products that are not habit forming, talk to your chemist this might help, but you really need to talk once again to your GP. or find another GP that might consider another approach.

    This does not seem like it is connected to non smoking, you might even have had something like this before starting smoking. Whatever you find out, " Do not pick up that cigarette", it will not help your condition, and will only hamper your progress. NOPE (not one puff ever) Keep on reading and posting, and stay in touch

    Softly gave you excellent advice. Explore all avenue to find the root of your problem. Doctors treat the symptoms, not the cause. A naturopath might be a viable option at this time.
    Smoking never did anything for us, it certainly will not solve this problem.
