I have a friend who, like myself, has severe health anxiety, and an illness. The illness may be caused by stress and anxiety but on the other hand it could be physical. She is suffering with pain and burning all over her body. Dose anyone find once you have a diagnosis of HA some medical staff will dismiss your symptoms and also family members. She is getting very little support from her family. I think people who haven't suffered from this do not understand the stress and pain that it involves. Pain is there whether it is physical or caused by stress. The Pain is real.
