Hello I'm new to this. I've noticed that many people are in the same boat as me. I am only 20 years old and I suffer with Health Anxiety (Hypochondria) really badly. I believe it all started when my mum passed away, I am Constantly checking my body for lumps and always think I have a serious illness (usually cancer). These past few weeks I have found a few lumps in my head and my head has become quite sore, I spoke to a doctor on the NHS helpline and he thinks it's cysts, I'm over thinking though and worried it's something a lot more serious like a brain tumour or leukaemia.. Could anyone help or does anyone understand what I'm going through? I just want someone to tell me that I will be okay, nobody listens to me and I get called an "attention seeker" but anyone who suffers from HA will know that attention seeking is the last thing we think of doing.... 😞😞
