Hi everyone, I feel like ive been on here a lot lately but i'm feeling like if i dont talk to someone i will lose my mind. I'm 20 and until up to a year ago was hardly ever stressed or anxious. Ive self diagnosed health anxiety as i believe ive got a serious illness every day, am constatly googling my symptoms and feel the illest ive ever fealt. I can keep going to my GP as i am at university and arent registered with a GP here. I recently had a blood test which came back with "inflammation" which I am panicking about because ive read that this can be a sign of cancer or tumor and ive just had an ultrasound in my stomach which i havent had the results for , the doctors arent worried. I need reassurance on my symptoms because I cant sleep with worry that ive got a brain tumor and bowel cancer. this has been going on for 4 monhs. My symptoms:
ibs (cramps, bloating, irregularity, looseness)
twitching all over my body
really sore neck everyday, more so as the day progresses
constant worrying thoughts
lack of concentration
sore stomach when pressing and touching
thoughts of being missdiagnosed
very jumpy and easy to scare
thoughts of dying
a panick attack
feeling feint and zoned out
a feeling of panick when falling asleep
awful oily skn causing acne.
getting ill a lot (colds etc)
Ive got it in my head that cancer has spread all over my body and i want endless tests to disprove this , but with this being my final year at uni it just isnt practical. Can anyone relate? or have any advice or tips that can put my mind at ease. I feel as though im going insane!
