Worry without need ?

Hi . Last year I felt very unwell . I had every test known from c xrays ×2, colonoscapie . endoscopy, ct ,ultra sound, bloods and prostrate .

Although everything came back normal although they dud say I have very mild lung disease from smoking I still feel ill . It's like I get a sensation of a lump in my troat and white mucus in the morning . I do gave a small hitial hernia but I'm terrified they missed something .

Am u alone in thus irrational thinking or is it common .

Shoukd say my dad passed last June and I gave gad other emotional stuff going ..

I know what you are thinking .. this guy is a basket case .

Hello Locker14 and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum 😊

We all have worries and anxieties, especially after losing someone close. But you have done everything you can with regards to getting yourself checked out, and from my experience, they are quite thorough despite all the NHS cuts etc 😊 Could you channel this energy into improving your health and fitness? You don't mention weight loss but this being the weight loss forum I'm presuming you wish to lose weight?

Here are a few suggestions on how to get the most out of the forum. Please note if you are using the new HU App many of these features are not available so I suggest you use the full website version.

The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you ☺

Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news ☺

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for ☺

Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate ☺

The forum also have group weigh-ins every day if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page ☺

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you may have a 'Newbie' badge. If you have any questions or would like a Newbie badge please just ask ☺

We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too ☺

Best wishes
