Hello

What an awful experience for you to go through and yes hormones can make your anxiety worse as well as dealing with what you have just been through

You really need to be talking with your Doctor , a full blood count to make sure you are not low in iron as well as testing other things would be good to get checked and they can also do the levels of your hormones with the blood test if you ask and you can see if what has happened has thrown them out a little bit just by this blood test and I would be asking to have them all checked if it was me

Medication does not always suite everyone , even though sometimes we do have to persevere but a lot of the time because we are anxious to start with the way the meds can make us feel while we are adapting to them for several weeks even months scares us so much it can put us of but there is therapy you can look at , again I would ask my Doctor to be referred , it would be really helpful :-)

I hope you have a loving supportive family around you and if you have someone you can talk to let them know how you are feeling , they may not understand and that is where you have this Community to post for understanding but they can give you a hug and I think you need a lot of TLC at this moment in your life :-)

Let us know how you get on :-)

Take Care x

I think you sound like you have health anxiety and with what has just happened to you it has magnified it even more and yes people with HA do feel they are going to die all the time because that is how the anxiety keeps a hold of them by feeding the fear but with some therapy helping to reverse the mind in how it thinks would really help and slowly if you put the work in it would get better :-) x

I understand , I used to be just the same and wasted so many years with the same fears stopping me enjoying these precious moments watching the kids grow up and back when I was suffering there was no help or support like now so please ask for it because I can reassure you all day and it will help for a short while that nothing bad is going to happen to you but until we learn how to reverse these thoughts they will always keep coming back

Try and distract yourself as much as you can , when the thoughts pop in sing to yourself to drown them out , tell yourself I know you are anxiety tormenting me and nothing else , you may not believe it to start with but the more you give the thoughts rejection then they will slowly get fed up and not be so powerful :-) x

Try not to force it to much to pass quickly this can create more anxiety but accepting it for what it is can be a good way to deal with it ....Small steps at a time , be patient with yourself :-) x
