So I’v had health anxiety going on almost four years now and for the most part my husband has been very supportive. Lately though he’s starting to get annoyed with me over it and it makes me feel like crap. He says I’m just starting to make up things now so I can go to the doctor, it is costing us a small fortune but I can’t help it.
Over the last 3/4 years I’v had a holter monitor twice, that’s an hours drive away to the hospital to get it fitted and another trip back the next day to get it off. I’v had a stress test, an endoscopy twice, several ekgs and blood tests, I’v been to ER numerous times, one resulting in an overnight stay where they did a CT scan of my brain. My last trip to the ER was three days ok when I got another chest pain, again they did bloods and a chest X-ray, all normal. Other times I’v spent in the hospital over the last 3 years that wasn’t anxiety related was to get my gallbladder removed and to have a baby.
I’v had jaw pain all day today and I’m so worried and panicked over it that I really want to go to the doctors again, it’s just with the trip to the ER three days ago, I’v already spent a couple of hundred quid so I’m afraid to bring it up to my husband, he’ll think I’m mad 😞
I just feel so alone at the moment and I’m so afraid over this jaw pain.
