I'm suffering with health anxiety and have just started CBT. Up until now Ive had an irrational fear that every ache or pain is cancer
However a few days ago I noticed a pain in my chest and am now worried. It can be across my chest or left breast area so naturally I'm fearing the worst. It can be an ache, twinge or stabbing pain, sometimes its in my back too. Ive tried to see if the pains just there when I think about it but thats constant so I can't tell.
My hubby thinks its heartburn. I did mention it to my gp last week when I went to get my sick note but she seemed to ignore my concerns maybe because it's nothing or she just thinks its down to health anxiety.
Has anyone else had anything similar?
