hey new to the group I am dealing with bad health anxiety at the moment. I am currently feeling like I have heart problems & would go into cardiac arrest.
Anyone with health anxiety, is it normal to feel palpitations like all the time? I can’t tell if I’m just like super aware or what.
anyone feel physically symptoms of anxiety when they don't even feel anxious?!
hi everyone...New here and just looking for people with similar experiences. I guess I'm typical in many ways in that I'm too attuned to every sensation in my body and what it could mean, health-wise and frequently googling symptoms when I have them. I try to be reasonable, though. I don't make the symptoms up. They are real. I'm feeling whatever I'm feeling. I just want to know whatever it is isn't something serious. Still, a part of me knows that I was much more relaxed and happy when I didn't know about all the things that could go wrong with my body. Thoughts, anyone?
Hi- I'm a newbie here! I'm currently struggling with anxiety. I took sentraline 100mg everyday since March 2022. It helped me tremendously, but I'm so scared that taking this medication everyday is gonna be harmful for my body. Does anybody experience the same thing?
Does anyone else get small tingles or pins and needles randomly in your arms, legs or face. Sometimes even what just feels like one singular pin or tingle?? I have been getting it lately and it has been driving me crazy!
anybody have chronic aches and pains all day??
I have had chronic health anxiety for Alittle over a year now that pertains to mainly cardiac stuff only. and even after checking all of the facts and talking to therapists, I can’t seem to get over it. Does anyone have any good tips that you were taught to help beat this or atleast suppress it? Thanks!
I have health anxiety about tiny spots of bright red blood in my toilet paper occasionally when wiping. I have been to doctor and they don’t seem worried since it’s not persistent. It seems to happen when I am constipated and straining to have a BM. What is going on?
When i see mild symptoms i always think there is a serious underlying disease and then i google my symptoms.. which gives me more anxiety. How can i have a self relief?
Does anyone else worry not only about health issues, but the fact you can’t tell anymore what’s important to get checked and what isn’t? I find myself second guessing every weird feeling I get, and simultaneously being incredibly anxious over them. How do you decide what to bring up to doctors?
I've been having an issue with chest tightness. it comes and goes, and it only hurts for a little while after I sneeze or something. my doctor couldn't find anything physically wrong so maybe it due to my anxiety? but that doesn't explain why sometimes it hurts so bad for a while. everytime it really triggers my health anxiety and makes me worried I ha e some heart or lung condition, even though there's no medical evidence of that. any ideas?
