Hypochondriac in need of help

So most likely I'm just over reacting but I have so many things that set off my hypochondria. Like for instance when I walk or run I get a clicking in the top of my head that I can feel and hear. If I have a cold or something like a flu I'll be convinced that I have Lung cancer or HIV. I know it's stupid but this is honestly taking over my life and I'm scared about my health all the time. Anybody have any ways of coping or advice?

Hi there, if you don't mind me asking why do you think you've got something really bad? Have you had a serious illness in the past ? Or has someone close to you?


I have the same issues in my mind. I am always on google if I hurt somewhere. This is also part of anxiety, and I have found that yoga helps. It is something that can take your mind off bad things we think. Another thing that might help you clear your mind is a lavender bath. Soak in the tub in lavender and light lavender candles. This calms your mind. I hope that helps you.
