  • john what is ur other symptoms

  • Hi John. I have health anxiety too. I really sympathise with you, it is a viscious circle. We are anxious, we get physical symptoms, we think something is medically wrong, more anxiety, more symptoms and it goes on in a loop. I recently completed three sessions of Hypnotherapy and it has really helped with breaking that loop. I would absolutely highly recommend it.

    It hasn't disappeared completely but the difference is that I can now rationalise when I get these thoughts therefore helping to break the loop. I don't allow myself to google anymore or do any of the other obsessive habits that was enabling my anxiety. That may sound very obvious but these things only serve to stoke the fear.

    There are some great books available for download on kindle or to order from Amazon about health anxiety that can reassure you.

    If you have been given a clean bill of health by the doctor then please seriously consider something like hypnotherapy and/or CBT. I have done both now and it does help.
