Obsessed with every little pain

Is anyone obsessed with every little ache and lain they have? I seem to have them constantly and I focus on them and think about them nonstop!

Yes!!!!! Me me me. My doctor is on speed dial and has been for years. I have had pains just about everywhere and so many random tests. I would love suggestions on how to stop fixating on health issues!

I wish I had some!!! I obsess over everything so!

I'm the same I have to keep telling myself that I'm fine

My family always tells me - stop thinking about it. Gosh, I wish it were that easy!

Amen me too!!! That’s exactly what my family says! It wouldn’t be there if you didn’t think about it!

Aches and pains are pretty common. I ache more when I’m not active.

Yes, every day! Any tiny thing I will convince myself it's a deadly disease. I have to remind myself when I get very panicky that I am always like this. I try to think: what are the odds? I'm young and relatively healthy, the chances of me getting 'x' are quite low. But sometimes the fear overcomes the logic and I end up at the ER or doctors, truly convinced that I am dying.

Oh yes every twitch, muscle ache everything is like my heart. I have to war with my mind constantly. I am just trying to comfort myself. I just hate anxiety.
