Hi all I am new to this forum, for about 3 years now I have suffered with health anxiety, meaning I fixate and panic about anything to do with my health, any pain or twinge I feel In my body I literally become obsessed with and fixate on it, it then becomes worse because my mind is magnifying it, in the back of my mind I know it's due to anxiety but I can't stop worrying thinking it's some life threatening disease! Im constantly making appointments with gp's and googling symptoms which makes me so much worse. I'm phobic of anything to do with illness or Ill people, it's driving me insane! does anyone else feel like this? Or have tips on how to control this?
