I have had health anxiety for a few years but has laid dormant for most of it but just recently after watching a film about someone with a terminal illness and a documentary about assisted suicide for people who cannot do it themselves plus the the stress of exams has been building up as i am sitting my gcse's in the near future, it then came back in full force.I have been suffering from a number of symptoms for 3 weeks now from difficulty swallowing, dry throat, shortness of breath/tight chest, shaking/twitching hand and fingers and finally muscle spasms.I'm scared to death thinking i have contracted motor neurons disease despite having these symptoms come out of nowhere and only being 16 years of age.
I have seen the doctor and he tried to reassure me saying that i most certainly do not have it and i am just anxious but then why haven't my symptoms gone away??? my problem is now that i have weird feeling in my throat and still have muscle spasms every now and then in places in my body plus my fingers are still quite twitchy.I know i'm being silly but i cant help feeling this way and some useful advice about whether you think i have anxiety or something else and if you do think i have anxiety ways to relieve these symptoms i'm having.
I'm not experienced with anxiety and have no idea how long it lasts but any helpful feedback about my situation or your past experiences will make me awfully grateful.
thank you =)
