I suffer from health anxiety and its ruining my life. I woke up this morning with pain between my shoulder blades. I've had this many times before but today for some reason i googled it. I then went on to read about reffered pain and have been suffering form nausea for a couple of months. In short i have concluded i have a severe stomach disease and am now having panick attacks. It sounds ridiculous, but i just can't stop the fear, it washes over me like a massive tidal wave and i feel like i want to rush to a&e. i have my 21 month old with me and i'm struggling. Why do i always look for the worse case scenario instead of just presuming its nothing. Its so driaining. I feel like i want someone to walk in, hug me and tell me its all going to be ok and that i'm not dying. I hate being like this. I feel so scared, and so alone.
