health anxiety


i suffer health anxiety..i really fear of getting ill and dying:-( i have got this head ache on one side at the back of my skull for over 3 weeks now..i feel nauses and sick with worry about it..gp said its neck and stress related..i am trying to relax about it and stop worrying that i have a brain tumor but when the headache starts every time upon wakening its just very hard..and the nausea on and off is awful..i have to function for my 2 kids..partner is working away in the week, no family around so on my own. Have been through a very bad birth (almost died twice in space of two weeks) had an awful silent misscarriage 2 years before...and had to cope relatively on my own..I just want to feel normal again😢😢 i dont want to fear the worse all the time😢😢

I had Cbt after the birth and also aftet the misscarriage..it helped me a bit..mayby i need help again

thank you for reading

I'm having this pain right now Im having a headache on my right side n the back of my head but it not severe to where I have to go to the ER....it goes away if I don't notice it but when I do I complain all day so what I do is drank alot of water,no pop but I still drink juice every now n then but I told my doc about my headaches n he just told to take some pain meds n lye down. So I ask him if he could do a cat scan or MRI he told me no because he know the signs of brain tumor n yes he done the brain tumor test that I hopes that works so I'm counting on him in trusting him that he knows what he talking about so I try not to stress so much on it I think positive n hope n pray to God I go back to normal
