What would you call this?

Hi guys I’m 21 and been out of work due to panic disorder and generalised anxiety disorder for a year. However something new has emerged over the past couple of months every time I cook for myself I’m convinced I’m going to give myself food poisoning even though I’m not cooking with meats. I also think some cleaning products will somehow get into my meals as well. I also believe I’m not eating enough despite snacking quite a lot during the day. I also have light headedness and a fear of choking as well as convinced I’m not able to eat the way I used to which would was a hugely calming factor but now it’s gone. Additionally I’ve not felt like myself for a long period of time my body and emotions feel weird am I seriously ill what’s wrong?

I also feel very tired throughout the day and early evening with a terrible sleep pattern at points I struggle to stay awake

With regards to the health anxiety challenging your thoughts is very helpful, considering the fact vs opinion technique. It’s your opinion that you’re going to get food poisoning not a fact. This helps me a lot, I also struggle with tiredness do you manage to sleep okay?
