i fear als and cancer

Posted , 4 users are following.

I fear on a daily basis that i have cancer or will get cancer i also experience strange sensations in my hands where they feel like i cant move them very well or almost stiff sensation so therefore i fear i have a terrible motor nuerone disease such as als, im guessing its anxiety related, ive suffered from this condition since a child iam now 20, i feel likeim very sensitive to my body and worry over the slightest symptoms and obsess over them for days or even weeks, would be niceto hear from others in the same position as me as i feel quite alone with my disorder as no1 ive spoken to understands.

    Hi Hun, I used to have those sensations in my hands and was diagnosed with stress and anxiety, sounds like u might have health anxiety, maybe book an appointment with your doc and spk to them about it, but what u r going through is normal with anxiety Hun so don't stress yourself out over it x

    I feared that often!!! I would go to the doctors and think I would have a brain Tumor. I google way to much!!!

    Also the sensations you are feeling are all do to anxiety!!

    Totally understand what you are going through
