fed up of fighting feel im being mis diagnosed.

Posted , 3 users are following.

So christmas day i ended up in A and E due to coughing up blood for the 4th time this year. Ive had xrays blood tests and ecgs and all came back clear. Ive got a habit of constantly clearing my throat, i feel like theres something is always there. Every one i see say ive scratched the lining inside my throat or burst a blood vessel. But ive convinced myself its lung cancer. I have a habit of googling constantly. And then tonight i read, xrays can be missed and blood tests dont always dhow cancer so ive gone through all that for nothing. I do suffer from servere anxiety and do take medication. And are under the mental health. But just want to know if this has happened to anyone else where they have coughed up blood. Its never a lot its less than a tea spoon. But im so scared of leaving my children. I cant stop worrying

Thank yoy for taking your time to read.

    Not to add to your worry at all,while anxiety can do a lot of things, it can't cause bleeding,that really does need proper investigation

    I have bronchiectasis and i coughed blood, but i live with it. Stop worrying so much, get good pulmonologist and ask for CT scan.
