    Hiya Charlotte smile

    Don't be worrying I also have health anxiety and I have had it since around 13 years old (now 24) it is just anxiety playing tricks with your mind into worrying! I do it all the time! I was convinced I had something up with my heart and had a heart scan and ECG test done and everything was fine! I still have heart palpitations and still worry something is up with my heart even though I've had tests to prove nothing is up! It's all part of anxiety and I know it is so horrible! Do try some counselling or relaxation techniques and exercise also helps! Please don't worry!

    Love Charlotte xxxx

    Definitely health anxiety!!!  You are 13 years old, your hormones are going up and down,  You're not going to die, you are just sufering from anxiety!!!  All quite normal.

    No, its anxiety. You urgently need professional help. Talk to your doctor, your teacher, phone social services. Don't do nothing.
