    Hey! You seem to have a little bit of hypochondria like I used to! I know exactly how it feels. You google minor symptoms then BOOM you start getting all the symptoms you've read. You work yourself up in a tizzy and then the mixture of anxiety + the psychosomatic symptoms you created convince you that you have mere hours left on the earth.

    But I'd be willing to bet you've gone through this numerous times, and lived to annoy the doctor with ECGS and MRI's.

    Emma, SYMPTOMS are really funny, because the same symptoms for anxiety, are also the same symptoms for numerous autoimmune diseases, illnesses, etc. Your body can only tell you theres a problem in so many ways. And lucky for you given all of your tests, the thing wrong with you is anxiety which is not life threatening.

      Oh so true, and our brain is SO amazing at convincing us of our impending doom. A little anecdote to show you how powerful the human brain is: Once I had an extremely bad panic attack, so bad I called the ambulance (makes me cringe thinking about to this day) anyway, once they came and we determined it was a panic attack me and the paramedic had a nice chat about anxiety attacks. He told me that sometimes when people have panic attacks their hands cramp and distort into weird claw things. AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW. next time i had a panic attack that happened, only because he told me that happens.

      That was a blessing in disguise, after that I realized that because my brain has control over me, I can have control over my brain, thus gaining control over myself and my illness.

      It's amazing what your mind can do. I had moles that I was convinced were cancerous. The next day they raised slightly and I was in mad panic. I had panic attacks and my partner was so good calming me and saying they were fine that after three or four days they went flat again. The mind has convinced me of throat cancer, stomach cancer and created symptoms. Feel like I'm crazy sometimes.
