Blood tests

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi there, looking for some advice please 😊

Would a blood test show up serious illness like cancer, brain tumour and ms? My anxiety is playing up big time tonight and I can't shift the feeling I'm dyin tho blood tests all normal Nd doc thinks it's anxiety and prescribed citalopram.

Thank you 😊

    Your dr is right , sadly no amount of reassurance will lessen your worry - that's just how health anxiety works. Best to treat your anxiety with meds and or therapy and these fixations will lessen

      Thanks for reply 😊 I have been referred for CBT therapy so hopefully they take me and started on citalopram but feel they making me worse. I just want my life back and 1 day where I can spend with my daughter where I don't think I'm dying of a brain tumour. Every day I find new symptoms that tie in with having a brain tumour! Is this normal?😊

    You are not dying. Thats why your bloodwork is good. You are filled with fear and anxiety. Probably sleep deprived as well. Why dont you try what the doctor gave you. It can only get better
