Hello there,I think we can all relate to you and I'm sorry you are experiencing what you are. I posted a message yesterday I went to a and e too. Like yourself I've had many tests done and all ok so possibly for me I'm just needing my meds increased as I'm on a low dose just now x


thank you so much for the reply ivebeenreading google and itdoesnt help i read about bacterial menigitis and cantget thought out of my head since i did , i know im suffereing anxiety just so scared its other stuff aswell my logical brain says a and e dontsend u home after all those tests if theres even a slim chance you are serverly poorly just cantremeber ever feeling this ill i also hope everything goes well for you and an increase in meds can help. i wouldnt wish anxiety on my worst enemy its the most horrid delibating thing i have ever experinced.


I'm with you totally, I got unwell last August and apart from the odd cold etc I was never unwell. I'm just staying in bed today again as I've got a headache now. Stay off Google buddy x
