    Hi yes I also have health anxiety and I know it sucks.every time I get a pain I google it and of course I've got every disease..I've just started new antidepressant and I googled that so I've convinced myself I've got every symptom. As long as you've had a good check up by your doctor we have to trust everything is ok

    My boyfriend doesn't understand it, either. He always seems to think I'm overreacting and being paranoid. He thinks that I make myself feel this way, for the most part. BUT, he has gotten better with it, yet there isn't much improvement. I love him, and he loves me. I think he just doesn't "understand" how bad it is. Lots of people think you cause yourself to feel this severe anxiety, or you would have to have been through some pretty f***ed up stuff to feel that way... Ya know?

    This is very common with anxiety/panic.

    If you have not done so already get a full medical check up.

    If all is ok and it is anxiety consider therapy to learn how to cope with it.
