I seem to have developed an anxiety around my health. I really don't know where it started but now I spend everyday worrying about my health. I'm always convinced I'm I'll, chest pains, numbness, tingling, feeling breathless, headaches and it's always the worst possible conclusion I come to. Heart attack, brain tumor etc... I have been to the doctors and they have referred me for CBT but that will take a while. I also have a habbit of jumping on to Google checking my symptoms, of course that makes things worse but I can't seem to stop myself. I feel trapped in this vicious cycle and I hate it. I panic over the slightest thing and work myself into a real state. Any advice would really be appreciated, has anyone else been through this and could maybe point me in the right direction. I feel like I am going mad!
