Anxity Neurosis or ?

Hello Doctor, Since last 6 months i am having frequent Muscle pain in my body specially left side (hand, arm, biceps, chest, leg) The muscle pain comes and goes. Sometimes chest fullness, sometimes neck pain. This causes irritation and fear for life. This also increases stress and affects day to day life. Loss of focus on work and personal life. It becomes difficult to pursue any hobby as well since these signals from body keep my mind anxious. I tried couple of Psychiatrist and Cardio and Neurologist to diagnosis the actual cause. However nothing could fix these problems. I am also skeptical on using medication from Psychiatrist as i feel i will get addicted. Kindly help to understand these symptoms and guide Thanks

Can't reply to people

Doctor I can't answer or talk to people as I do with my mother and some other close friends. I only feel free to talk without any hesitations with very less people . the problem is when I talk to people whom I don't feel free to talk with, I reply something foolish sometimes.. Which I think after the incident I don't feel good about myself and my personality. This behavior is like my father's .. That is why even I don't like him sometimes because it is he by whom this behavior came to me , and this is not something which one can change by himself because this is natural. My mother is opposite of him bold,strong and confident. How can I overcome this situation doctor. Thanks in advance.

Hi doctor, I am writing this query for my grandma. She is telling something everyday which is actually not happened.while watching TV, she will relate everything to her life (if one guy is arrested in news and if name of guy is her brother , she will relate to her life). Also she thinks that somebody is living on terrace of house and claiming that they are trying to steal her house and properties around house. One day she prepared food for those imaginary peoples (people on terrace) and she told that they are starving. But whenever she meet a person from outside , she will smile and talk normally . She will tell everything Infront of close ones. She is having a good memory of the things happened. Also she thinks that something will happen to her house if she sees some news regarding some house demolishing news. We consulted one physiatrist nearby , but no effect . What it could be? Even we are not getting a clear picture of what is going on.
