    Hypochondriasis is fear, fear without due reason is an indication of an underlying psychological condition.

    Maybe a trip back to your doctor is in order, with a view to obtaining a referral to appropriate mental health services.

    There is much that can be done today to relieve symptoms such as your's, but you need to be perfectly open and honest with your doctor about the effect that it is having on your life.

    I feel exactly the same scared there is something wrong with me when small thing happen. I just can't help it, I take citalopram which does help the anxiety a little but I'm still scared something bad is going to happen in my life like cancer. I'm seeing a counsellor on Thursday as a last resort to help me overcome this. I never used to worry, but now I can't stop.

      I'm always on google I don't help myself at all but can't help it. This group has helped a lot. Citalopram do work to a certain extent but you can never really change the way you think. Good luck to you!! At least I know I'm not the only one!!
