So I have been going to a psychologist as I suffer chronic health anxiety/panic/ocd/PTSD. Anxiety is fear based and medication won't cure it nor will it fix it as it only masks it, like a bandaid. You have to face the fear which is the only way to cure it. Yes that's right, you need to face it and when you are experiencing the very uncomfortable symptoms and feelings you need to tell yourself it can't hurt you that it's only your fight/flight response over and over again. You need to do this everything as horrible as it is you need to do this. I'm going through this now and I don't have the symptoms/feelings for as long and I'm ready for when it happens. Don't be frightened of it as its a normal response and everyone has it. Please try and give it a go for at least a month. Goodluck and stay strong. For every negative thought you need to think of 3 positive ones. You can do it.
