hi I'm 22 years old, on my friends 19th birthday, 4 years ago, I was put in a situation which made me experience a panic attack, I suffered for a further 2 years after it. I now think I'm suffering with real bad anxiety, I've started getting little headaches, feeling dizzy, feeling sickly, feeling emotional, feeling irritable, I'm so frightened i have a brain tumor?! I'm driving myself insane. crying all the time, being stressed all the time, I was a strong minded level headed girl. now I'm a wreck and dwell on everything, I have a two year old daughter and I won't move out my house to go anywhere with her as I feel like I'm going to pass out or panic etc.. does anybody recognise what I've said?! I really need to get my life on track, I need reassurance! should I be worried?! thankyou.

  • I seem a councillor as well for a few months when experiencing my panic attacks, your comments will be much appreciated. I'm scared off going to the gp incase I get told bad news. I over think and dwell on everything & I've seriously convinced myself I have a life threatening illness.

  • Hello lillymai

    The chance of you having a life threatening illness is very,very,small.

    I am not a doctor but I am pretty sure that you have health anxiety.

    The first step on the road to recovery is to see your gp you will I am sure not get bad news but should get advice and maybe medication to help you


  • Your story sounds a bit like mine, get to your GP and request some CBT, I've had to pay for it myself but it's really helping. Well better than I was.


  • Lillymai sounds very much like health anxiety go see ur GP they can help gd luck xxx
