Health anxiety is creeping in, what do i do?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am 16 years old and it all started a few weeks ago when i was scared i was pregnant. I had a cough at the time and i was also a little worked up over Ebola, even though there is a very small risk for that where i live. I started to look up all kinds of symptoms of pregnancy, ebola and the causes for a cough. After that i became really emoiobal and started to cry about the smallest things, and i had also been on birth control pills for 3 months. After i realised the cough or being pregnant was no worry i started to really monitor my heartbeat and realised that my heartrate felt really high. I started to worry constantly after i almost fainted at school, so i looked up more symptoms. Heart attack or stroke were the things that my mind picked up. I had a hard panic attack at christmas and apent a long time in the bathroom crying. I am in constant worry of my heart and chest pains, and it feels like i feel pains everywhere. I also feel like i cant do anything, im constantly tired and im scared to get physically active because i think im gonna have a heartattack because of my heartrate. At times i tell myself im ok, and my ecg and blood test came out fine even though i have low iron in my body so i have pills for that. 

I really need people who have the same anxiety pf dropping dead or something, and i want to know if im alone with this smile
