Hi, I'm newly diagnosed with GAD, it started after a panic attack over a serious health scare and I found I could no longer stop worrying. My main issue right now is that I have focused my worry on strange feelings in my face. These started whilst worrying over the health scare and once I got the all clear on the scare I seemed to focus on these feelings and have convinced myself I have a rare cancer of the sinus cavity. I genuinely have feelings of pressure, discomfort and stuffiness but, I can't work out if the symptoms have come on from researching the feelings and finding this cancer and thus experiencing them or if they were there first and are making me anxious!! I don't even know if that makes sense!!
GP very understanding and has given me anti anxiety meds to try first. I keep trying to bring myself back to what I consider reality and normality But I'm struggling! All very new to me this feeling of constant anxiety and fear, never had any issues in my life before, it's awful!
Well that's me. Xxx
