Hi everyone.

I find all of you guys so great so I'd like to share my fears and maybe one of you can help or reassure mesad

basically July last year I got really poorly, I've been bulimic for 8 years and suddenly i started feeling very dizzy and out of breath and ended up having anemia I was on iron tablets then. I stoppes vomiting, went fpr a check up blood test and my anemia was gone. The past 6 months I feel like I'm going crazy.. i have relly weird physical symptoms and all Ican think about is my heart up to now in 6 months I thought I was having a heart attack coming, stroke, MS, fybromyalgia, b12 deficiency. I have muscle aches, palpiations (from time to time) nausea, chest pain, i suffer from acis reflux , headaches, tingling, brain fog, hot flashes, diarrhoea/constopation. I cant take heart worries off my mind. In 6months I ended up in a&e 8times and countless visits to a doctoe Ive had ecg everytime i went to a&e and it was clear. My doc diagnoses me with acid reflux but the smallest thinf makea me think i have a heart disease. Im aware fhat this is all in my head and its anxiety but all the physical symptoms are making my life hell. Ive got a little girl and i cant enjoy her fully.

Does anyone else suffer like i dosad

    you need to stop thinking about possible illnesses you might have and try to look after your daughter and make her the priority.  I know you will find that hard but a lot of this is in your head and you need to try not and imagine the worst case scenario of illnesses that you may or may not have.
