I've always had health anxiety, but it took one rough night out and not feeling well to bring on extreme anxiety about this illness I think I now have! Sometimes I can think 'right you're being silly, think logically about it' and I'm alright but then I have the sinking feeling of 'oh god, I actually have it!!' Anyway, just wondering if you're worrying that much constantly about something can you start to imagine/create symptoms yourself?! I've been diagnosed with anxiety and am on citalopram but the docs never really explained to me how it works/why it happens etc so I get freaked out if I'm sat at home by myself feeling calm and the anxiety attacks hit me out of nowhere! Any info/help would be very much welcomed! Xx
