I'm new to this group but have been experiencing severe health anxiety for the last few months. I have been diagnosed with Post Viral Fatigue following Labarynthitis, my biggest worry, currently, is that I am developing dementia due to my chronic word finding issues and memory problems. However, sleep was my only respite From constant worrying until a few weeks ago when I started to wake from dreams in a state of panic, scrabbling around to remember family members names in a half asleep/half awake state - this is following on from dreaming I can't remember their names. I also have problems when I wake early and am trying to get back to sleep I have racing thoughts in a 'semi dreamlike state' often quite illogical in format but all seem to play out my health anxiety. Often when I try to Phaethon out this thoughts once awake I struggle to remember much detail just random parts. Has anyone else experienced this? It terrifies me and seems to reinforce my belief I am developing dementia of some kind. Any info gratefully received.
