My story is long but I'll try and cut it short as possible. There were alot of deaths around me in the year 2014, i also went through a difficult break up alot went on in my life that year. In 2014 I developed servere Anxiety & Depression mainly Health Anxiety, I quit my degree I had just started and also left work I was housebound depressed and full of anxious thoughts, I was convinced I was dying of all sorts of illnesses and diseases. So I went to my GP got help was put on Sertraline and referred to do CBT, the first month was awful i went from 50mg to 200mg of sertraline and developed what i thought was every side effect possible before i knew it within 3 months I felt like I was cured i had my life back. Suddenly the past 3 months I feel like my health anxiety is coming back full blown I have in the space of a month had yet again every illness the main ones convincing myself I have asthma which my auntie passed away from In 2014 and a stomach ulcer which my grandmother passed away with the same year. I also had a panic attack in Nandos which I convinced myself it was a Nut allergy and ended up in A&E now everything i eat or drink I think im going to have and allergy to which is terrifying me and effecting my life again. My GP put me on propanalol which I took once thought I had an allergy never took it again. I am going on Holiday in the morning and terrified I'm going to develop sun stroke, it's ruining my life in all sorts of ways and when I get back from my Holiday I'm going back to my GP and going to request CBT again I think any medication will make me worse at the moment with me constantly thinking I am having allergies. Also the anxiety symptoms are constant, constant tightness in my chest, gas, indegestion and IBS symptoms. Just curious if anyone had had an Anxiety relapse and how they went about it and what was sucsessful. Hope to shed a more positive light sooner. X
