is it still anxiety
Your son needs to get into some therapy for his health anxiety..........and the sooner the better! Sorry to be harsh about this, but your son is a 30 y/o grown man and needs to take responsibility for his own health care, and that includes MENTAL health. For him to be calling you EVERY night, dirupting your life, still looking for "mommy" to comfort him, is a sure sign, in my book, that he needs professional help as soon as possible. I know you love your son, I realize you are concerned and worried about him and it's obvious that you care a great deal about him, but it's long past the time to cut the apron strings here, mom, and while you can still support him, you need to stop enabling this behavior.
If you read some posts on here, you will see that many, many people are awoken from sleep in a state of anxiety/panic. That this cardiologist says anxiety doesn't wake you up is yet another example of how little most docotrs understand the intensity and power of our anxiety/panic issues.
If you and your son wish to stop "going to hell and back," help him get into therapy so you can both regain "normal" and healthy lives.
