This is gonna be really long, brace yourselves.
So basically about a month ago I had gone to the GP to get a health report in order to get a basketball licence and my blood pressure was 14/9 the doctor said this was high but then I panicked even more and this time it got to 16/9. Long story short I was admitted into hospital a few days later because I had a really high blood pressure (16/9) After I took a pill it dropped and I could go home the day after however I think the whole experience triggered something in me. The doctors were experienced and decided to get a general check up. I had an ultrasound of my kidneys and a urine test, my kidney turned out to be healthy. I then had an ECG and a x-ray and there seemed to be no problem too. (Maybe I should mention that I developed a huge phobia of doctors from afterwards)
I seem to be fine (except I'm overweight) but since then i've become hyper aware of everything and i don't know if it's anxiety or something serious, for example especially when I'm stressed I get tingles in my arms, feel my heart beating (although the bpm never goes above average) and have diffuculty breathing. I feel like there's a metaphorical cage where my actual ribcage is and i feel like my heart and lungs can't expand comfortably. I always check my blood pressure and it's generally 10/6 (at the hospital this goes up to 13/8 because I panic there) the thing is I even thought at one point that the doctors were hiding stuff from me.
My blood glocouse levels are fine and yet I'm still worried. Some symptoms I checked say diabetes but I wouldn't have it if my blood glocouse was normal right?
The bottom line is, I've become hyper aware of everything and i'm constantly worried something bad will happen to me. Every single headache or pain makes me check my syptoms online (which we all know never ends well) and i constantly need reassuring that I'm okay and not dying. I get irritated really easily nowadays and i'm also under a lot of stress from school. Anxiety disorder is what it seems like but I'm still worried, what should I do?
Thanks if you read up to here
