I have been suffering with health anxiety for almost 3 years now. When it first started it was awful i was constantly googling the symptoms i had and it was almost like i was obsessed with every little pain or twinge in my body. I was convinved i had a brain tumour but after having constant check ups basically living at the doctors it kind of went away. The anxiety was still there but not about my health. The past week i have been experincing weird symptoms and the health anxiety is back and worse than its ever been. Im terrified that im going to die and too scared to go to the doctors. I cant tell my mom because it annoys her when i constantly seek reassurance. I cant accept that it is anxiety and i cant cope with it any longer. Does anybody else feel like this?
