      Yes I have bad health anxiety I use to be like you scared to go to Dr,I'm still petrified of what they will say but I'm at the Dr more then I can count since July cause I have a son to raise I owe it to him to go.its very very hard to go though I hyperventilate and just plain freak out. I know its hard take baby steps make an app and have someone go with you.just go and talk to Dr that's what I did first all next app I had thyroid test I worked my way up to having so many labs and things done. Good luck I wish you the best

    I am 15 and I haven't been diagnosed with anxiety but I can't stop worrying that I'm going to have a heart attack/die sad. I have been to the doctors a few times and the hospital and had 2 ECGs and a chest X-ray as well as blood pressure,oxygen levels,temperature,weight and listening to my heart and lungs. They're saying I'm young and they're not worried about my heart and that I'm fine but I'm really not I can't stop thinking about it and I have like every heart attack symptom!! I know that anxiety can cause them but I'm so worried. I went to the hospital 2/3 times.. I want more tests but I don't think they will give them me,what's are you worrying about ? Xx

      Aww bless you! Please don't google your pains and problems tho because you will only drive yourself insane sad

      Mine is all back to when I put on weight after my knee operation I put on so much weight! Then when I started to feel better about myself I had a cyst on my ovary and it was awful! I had my ovary and cyst removed but I can't help but think that the cyst will return or grow on my other ovary xxxxx

      I had a lot of severe pain around my right side of my pelvis and then surrounding my kidney area... I was rushed in to A&E and given a CT scan, But they didn't pick up on this time it wasn't until I got rushed back in again by ambulance 4 hours later they discovered a 11x10x10cm dermoid cyst! I've been suffering with depression and anxiety since! That was back in March last year, I had my right ovary, tube and dermoid cyst removed! Xxxx

      Hey josey ... That's very strange I would keep pushing and pushing because I got sent away like I said with a kidney and bladder infection and then on my return only hours later being told I would lose my ovary because they had missed my cyst! I've done the whole googling thing and I worked myself up and thought o had ovarian cancer that my cyst was going to regrow and that I had leukaemia as I had some severe bruising on my back ! Google is the worst thing because it makes you worry even more! You know your body better than anyone else babe so go and get checked out again really tell them your in pain and you want something done because you can't go on! I'm glad I kept pushing ! Even tho I still get odd bits of pain every now and again rolleyes

      I don't know how blood in your wee isn't alarming for them and they palm you off like its normal! They are there to help you not push you away to worry ! Grrrrr doctors annoy me !!!! How are you feeling today ? Pm me if you want to chat further xxxx

      Hi Stacy,,the worring is worse than the illness, phoned doctor up monday,couldnt get appointment till thursday,then he will probably say he will make arrangements for more test,,,,then its the waiting game again,, i will see what he says on thursday,any waiting and im just going too go private,cause i cant stand this worrying, it wouldnt be so bad if this pain wasnt here all the time reminding me,the worry is making me feel sick.,i will let you know how i get on thursday,but my appointment is not till 4oclock,  i can remember when you could walk into docs without appointment,now your lucky if you can get in within week,no wonder people just go to Aand E. Speak to you soon.xxx

      Private message me if you want to chat any more I'm always here to reply babe xxx it's the worst thing in the world to be made out like your lying about how your feeling but you need to keep pushing ! If you give up the worry will drag you down even further and it will take you longer to get up ! Believe you me don't get to the rut I was in ... Not eating and pushing the close people away that loved me ! Be brave and stand up for yourself ! Your the one who knows your body like no one else! Look at me I may be one less ovary but I'm a little bit stronger as a woman don't get me wrong I can be an emotional mess but I'm a lot better now! Let me know and keep your positive thought babe 😘😘😘😘 keep me updated xxxx
