I have no help. But you sound like me, when I’m in that phase. I obsess over other health issues. Unsolved, mysterious and fascinating... until I lose my sh@t and freak out.

Try to stop...? Maybe? I don’t know. I feel like maybe I know it gets worse. And maybe I would have liked to have been warned. Probably doesn’t help, or I mean, it’s probably not going to make you stop. But maybe you’ll get a creepy feeling when reading this and don’t want to sound like me one day. Lol. Anyway. Man I’m losing it today. I’m sorry for what you’re going through. What you’ve gone through. What you’ve lost. I’m sorry.

Oh. Also, it does suck, so bad. I never imagined I would grow up to be a hypochondriac. I have so many disorders and medical anomalies... just an assortment of symptoms that will add up to something. One day. Maybe. My scare of today was peripheral edema. It started to come back. I think I dealt with it fast enough this time.

Thanks for your reply it is a real pain to suffer this way and I like you would prefer a warning...I've had every illness going... in my head anyway. it's so hard to get passed every episode I have gets worse as they come and im finding it harder to beat...I never thought I'd ever be a hypochondriac either how did we get here😣

Thank you for your reply
