hi, I am new here and glad I found this group and know that I am not totally alone! I have major health anxiety and am always worried that something is wrong with me. I have imagined that I have had at least 5 or 6 different types of cancer over the past few years. Once one health worry goes away because of seeing a doctor another pops up. it totally takes over my life. a few months ago I thought I was having heart issues, then I had breathing problems and both of those things turned out to be stress and anxiety. Now I am back to worrying about cancers again. My doctor keeps telling me I am healthy but I just can not stop thinking about dying or something being wrong with me. I hope this group gives me some sort of hope that I can overcome this anxiety that I suffer from.
helloi suffer from health anxiety but also have a fear of going to the doctors and having testing done-so basically I worry over every ache and sensation and catastrophize everything to worst case scenerio want mental relief but afraid to go to doc and put myself through testing for example doc gave me routine stool cards few months ago did not do petrified to do and convinced i will need to...
Does anyone experience this? I get in a deep funk (anxiety/depression..sick/crying) when my period is ending or has ended. Has anyone else experienced this?
