Health anxiety is draining

This is my first post here, and I have to mention first and foremost that lately I’ve been experiencing a particularly intense period of health anxiety. I’m terrified of having a heart attack or a stroke, amongst many other things, but I’ve been severely overthinking symptoms and making myself believe I may be having a heart attack. Anyone who struggles with health anxiety knows it’s a vicious cycle and it can be very debilitating. I’ve been having mental health issues since I was 14, and now that I’m 19, I can say in many areas, I’ve improved, but in different areas, I’m still struggling. I feel for anyone suffering with anxiety and/or depression.
