Hi, I've got bad anxiety

It started getting really bad about 9 weeks ago when I had a bad lower back, went to the doctors they told me it was a u t I and gave me antibiotics, It still wouldn't go away the pain and I googled my systems I thought I had cancer. That was it I went to a&e they just gave me more antibiotics told me the other ones didn't work.i still felt ill aches pains everywhere I thought I was going to die

Went back to the doctors said I was ok

Then 2 days later I still had pain so went back to hospital. They admitted me for 1 night thinking it was kidneys in the end they said the uti had gone I had muscular problems due to anxiety gave me 5 days diazipan

They told me I was ok. I went back to the doctors again 3 days later saying I felt ill

He sat with me for 25 minutes explaining everything to me and thst helped me a lot

everytime I ache or have a pain I read up on it.

I must try and stop this as it makes me so poorly..

Anyone else like this please?

  • Hi it's hell being like this I'm obsessed with my health been a nurse 35 years and never thought I would be a patient my family try but I know they want me to pull myself together as I do!!!!but been off work today as got a 3am migraine and thought I was going to have another so glad you replyed as I feel I'm not alone won't take antidepressants as have in the past and made me like a space keep strong and if you need a moan I'm here we will try not to google symptoms 😷Xx

  • Googling symptoms is the worse thing we can go. It just acts like fuel to the fire. Ride out the way of panic. It's bound to get over. We were not made to be in the state of anxiety forever after all.

  • Wave* of panic

  • Yes I suffer from health anxiety so nothing feels enough at times with all this check ups but it will exhaust you
