Hey guys. I've been experiencing health anxiety now for about 8 months. It all started from a melanoma scare (luckily all came back clear). Since then though I've obsessed about every illness under the sun.. From cancers, to heart attacks to strokes to meningitis, everything I could think of. For the past two months though, I've experienced constantly dizziness (such as feeling off balance), headaches, forgetting everything, depersonalisation, lightheaded , weak knees and numb muscles in face and arms, feeling like I'm falling etc. I don't sleep well anymore.. I always wake up in panic attacks or it takes me ages to fall asleep. I'm worried because I don't know if it's anxiety or other things, today has been really bad, all day I've been feeling like this, at work I've had to block off panic attacks, crying, and losing my cool. Is all of this because of anxiety.. Or is my anxiety bad because I'm actually experiencing symptoms of a severe illness?? I honestly don't know what to do anymore, I feel like a lost cause, my relationships are affected, and my work life. I miss the old me, I feel like I should just call it quits and give up.
