Hello, my name is Lauren. I'm 19 turning 20 in November. I have a problem where I'm constantly worrying about my health and something bad happening to me. A little backgroud on me, I've never really had anxiety before well not this extreme anyway just anxious about a presentation or talking to new people. Last month I experienced my first heart palputaion along with extreme dizziness I went to the urgent care and was having an anxiety attack. Never had one before so it freaked me out big time. Ever since then I feel like I have something seriously wrong with me. Just this week I went to the urgent care again because I was having really bad stomach pain the lady proceeded to tell me I had the stomach flu. To this day I don't think she diagnosed me right. Especialy since I've accumulated more symptoms.
-shortness of breath
-having to pee a lot more than usual
-lower back pain
-fast heart beat
Just to name a few. I hate googling my symptoms because it always makes me believe I have a serious health problem and stresses me out. But it's like I can't stop researching. The more I do the more I get anxious. Latley I feel a lot safer when I'm closer to the hospital or urgent care because I feel like I'm going to have a problem and not be able to get help if I'm far away. I try my best to keep myself calm but I keep working myself up.
Anyways thank you for reading. I hope someone can help ease my mind or understand what I'm going through. I feel like I'm losing it.
