Anxiety is affecting me eating

Posted , 3 users are following.

So lately i have had very bad anxiety when it comes to eating anything. Literally anything. I have a fear of having a food allergy and having anaphylaxis. When i do eat my anxiety causes my throat to feel as though its swelling as well as my tongue even though it isn't. Im always checking in mirrors and continuously swallowing to make sure i actually can. This is driving me insane. The only allergies ive had is dog and cat fur, grass pollen and a couple of years ago i became lactose intolerant. I need reassurance please!

    Try to focus on something else other than your tongue, do some activities that can distract you & consult a doctor.
