    I feel the same recently started experience anxiety since I got sick with a cold early March, of course started googling symptoms as it drug out over 3 weeks, now every time I feel something I google, been told many times not to but it's hard as I feel I get dismissed by doctors. I'm frustrated and need to learn how to deal with my anxiety it's hard.

    I've done this, after I had my daughter and now 12yrs later I find myself doing it again, every symptom I have I think is terminal, I go to the doctors, have all the tests, they all come back clear, then I think I'm going crazy and think the doctor thinks I'm a hyprocondiac. It's hard to know whether I'm really ill or its anxiety again, but now all the tests are clear I know it's anxiety. It's all to do with hormones, my family are scared to talk to me about any kind of illness as I seem to take on all the symptoms and I don't even know I'm doing it. But your not crazy and you will get over this, I went on some antidepressants until my hormones sorted themselves out and it really works, I'm perimenopausal now apparently and I'm dealing with it better now. Hope you ok, but your not crazy, it seems to affect a lot of people like this x

     Anxiety can completely mask itself as something else. I had it so bad I thought I had a brain tumor and had a complete CT SCAN and nothing. Go seek help and try some xanax to see if that helps.

    Anxiety does make you feel like you are losing your mind. The good thing is, as you are aware of it you are clearly not losing your mind. I've suffered on & off for years. It sounds like health anxiety. You need a kind Dr to give you meds, a good counsellor to help you understand & try CBT. You also may benefit from deep muscle relaxation. All of these things take time to work. So you have to be patient with yourself & treat yourself like you would treat your best friend. You need the skills to learn how to cope with this. It is quite doable. Good luck. Also ask your GP about books on prescription
