I've been told I have health anxiety, done a quiz with the councillor and it's borderline health anxiety. I didn't think I had this type of anxiety until I dat down with the councillor and went through things. Some of it I don't believe because I have had health issues at the min pain in my pelvic area which they found polyps in my gallbladder just by doing a routine ultrasound as the pain moved to the upper region too. So anyway I was just wanting to know how do any of you feel Every day living with health anxiety? Symptoms and feelings. Also has anyone overcome this? Or does anything help?
Me: I feel anxious as soon as I wake to going to bed. I feel jittery anxious nervous like moving all the time I have to be doing something. I go quiet because my mind never stops and I can't even be bothered to speak sometimes and if I do speak I feel like the words won't come out properly or it makes me more anxious. I have aches and pains everyday mainly in my shoulders and neck but I believe this is from being so tense all day and not being able to relax. Sometimes I feel ok but feel like I will freak out and go crazy pass out or faint, it's never happened yet. I get headaches. Feel dizzy light headed all day. Doctor Said I had vertigo then I havnt. To me feeling anxious is being on edge with a lot of symptoms then thinking about these symptoms and obsessing about them turns into panic attacks only sometimes I've had a few panic attacks lately while driving my car, this is a new one for me anxiety while driving.
How does everyone else feel?
