Hello ,I am writing because "this"( I say this because I want it to be anxiety but my mind leads me to believe its serious health issues) has begun to consume me and hopefully this may help me in some way or help somebody else.
I'm 27,F, (family history of cancer,diabetes,high bp,anxiety,depression) not physically/socially active although I am some what overweight and don't get enough exercise I have been in good health with no major problems. Last year I started getting occasional headaches, I was not too bothered but overtime they became more frequent.
I started getting new sensations: stabbing,dull,tingling,sharp,numbness,pressure in my head that was happening on a daily basis and started lasting longer . I decided to see my PCP and as time went on the daily headaches + constant jaw pain started making me wonder if I had an aneurysm, brain tumor,serious illness.
I had countless trips to ER... 2 CT scans , MRI, all normal. I starting seeing a neurologist and was told even before the MRI that it is migraines I suffer from. After the MRI came back I still ask "what if it was read wrong?" "What if it missed an aneurysm?" etc... There's been even more symptoms lately in different areas of my body ( I will post about later) that I find myself worried could all be causes of serious illnesses...EVERYDAY I wonder "Am I gonna be OK?"
I also wonder if I went into extreme anxiety because last year my younger sibling was diagnosed with a rare cancer that is life threatening. My sibling is still alive and fighting (even though the odds are against) I pray and BELIEVE that GOD will make this a living testimony that he bears healing hands, in JESUS name AMEN.
I will write more and further in depth but I can't stop asking "Am I sick"....or is this me worrying myself sick??!??!?
If you have health anxiety or can relate to this please reply!!!
