Hi.. I was diagnosed with health anxiety couple of months ago and since then I have been suffering from extreme anxiety and physical symptoms ... My physical symptoms that are consistent are light sensitivity and flashy vision, muscle pains, finger twitching, chest pains, chronic fatigue, shooting pains in head etc. I have been taking medicines from past 2 months (Desvesflaxine and Etizolam) and have also started with CBT. My parents are considering sending me to a retreat centre. Now I don't even understand when I will be fine and what I should do. There is no issue monetary wise though the people around me do not tend to understand me. Can someone please tell me what works/worked best in anxiety and how long does it take to cure? Also if the physical symptoms subside with time and are they completely curable? One more thing i wanna tell before this health anxity scene i used to get some weird thoughts as if i have hit someone from my car i used to check 100 times i used to go back to the place i drove through.. And then after one day when i was lying down my girlfriend told me that there is a bump in my head i got frightening and i thought its brain tumor or something like that and then after those thoughts got vanished(hiting someone from the car) i dont know how .. If i have ocd though my doctor didn't told me .. Health anxiety is houst my ocd as far as i have read on the google ... The medication is not working much .. I m going for the cbt also now ... Life was amazing 4 months ago i had everything anyone need's in life .. Will the physical symptoms subside ? I cant take this anymore
