Anyone with anxiety knows googling is bad and yeah ive done it this morning as i now think i may have a brain tumour because if a constant headache ive had on and off for about 2 weeks!!! I have suffered with migraines and nearly daily headaches since i was 11 but now i have health anxiety im convinced its something more serious!!! My neck is so tender and tight it hurts and so do my shoulders!! So proberly tension but can it last this long , ive been taking max dose of paracetamol for months everyday due to my fear of pain so i kinda take it to ward off any pains i do get i know its bad by the way. Anyway i was searching google and saw the symptoms of more serious headaches like loss off limb coordination and weakness and now i have those symptoms my arms and legs feel like jelly!! So now my mind is going into overdrive anxiety omg its a tumour blah blah . Has anyone else noticed that when they look at symptoms they then get them?? Is it all in my mind or have i just not noticed it? Argh! Im so fed up living this way and i was just starting to beat anxietys ass :'( :'( xx

    If you want to google something, google Hypochondriasis. I did to see what it says, because if I hear of someone having something, I am then convinced I have it. I am one of the ones that completely avoids any kind of illness. Won't go to the doctors. Whereas most are in the doctor constantly, but still do not believe that they do not have something serious.

    Yes! We ansorb like sponges.  And so do people without anxiety disorders to a point.. id say most people would start ansorbing symptoms. Its awful.Google is scary. They are trying to fix this issue as it has sent way too many people running to doctors. So they are now starting to show more common stuff before they jump to death and terminal illness which was extreme. I have googles diagnosis and then read them and similiar stuff happened and hapoens to me. Same with some forums. Its eeird isnt it. I dan read self help books from here to eternity and little to nithing comes of it haha. But with anxiety comes fight or flight amd it is the search for danger. Todays tiger chasing you is dr. Google.

    its very scary when you get a diagnosis and look in google too. Doctors are more careful not to say too much so we can live a happier life many times. Its too much.

    im guilty of doing the same thing. Not just with anxiety either.

    your headaches are probably rebound headaches or they do play a role. You cant take parcetemol daily all the time for so long. Its not meant to be used like that. Too much.  Look up tylenol, motrin or parcemtol and rebound headaches. And migraines have migraine meds if needed. This stuff isnt healthy or good for your organs or ears long term like that. 

     Does you doctor know you take so much pain killers? Im thinking this should be addressed with your gp or a nuerologist. 

    In terms of the anxiety olace you faith in yourself not in google. Your body is a lot a,arter then you are believing,
