OK, honest mistake and at least he had the sense to check with a specialist, but maybe not the very brightest GP in the business.
Apart from MIgraine ( I have long had it myself, so I understand its variations ) you seem to have developed, understandably, hypochondriasis, an excessive and unpleasant worry about your health, and this fits very much with the anxiety attacks.
And how sad that your partner also suffered serious misdiagnosis and mistreatment.
As you will have discovered, no amlunt of testing or visiting different specialists is reassuring for you.
But instead, focus on treating the real central problem, the excessive anxiety about your health. See a really good local psychologist first, for assessment and treatment using the CBT, Cognitive-Behaviopur therapy, method, which is excellent for reducing unhelpful anxiety, and revising unhelpful automatic assumptions and reactions of the sort you are definitely suffering from.
Not only is this effective and usually doesn't take very long, but it will both greatly improve your wuality of life and general well-being by removing the unneeded anxieties, but actually enhanc e your degree of safety, by letting you assess any symptoms that turn up, realistically.
Remember that at any given time, around 80 % of people we might stop randomly on the street, are experiencing one or more symptoms. And hardly any of them actually have any significant illness as such
