    Hi, I have been through similar and know it's tough to straighten our your thoughts. The mind is so powerful and leads the body. I have had health anxiety/hyperchondria for several years and am just starting to beat it....Try read a book I have recently read. It will be a great help for you. It's called Stop Thinking Start Living, by Richard Carlson.... Will really help you get control on your thought process... All the best

    Hi Mina,

    You are still a student and not yet completed your medical education. So it is better not to jump to a final conclusion. You are learning these diseases /complaints from patients and not for you to imagine yourself in such a picture. There is always some pathophysiology and a particular course of progression of a disease. Having knowledge of disease does not cause disease. Change your way of thinking. Collect as much as information you can and complete your medical education successfully. All the best.
