Hi new to this, think I have developed health anxiety but not sure which is half the problem I think, It started last August whilst working away, I was doing exams and was stressed, my body was worn down as I had a bad abses on my tooth/gum which I was waiting to have out and was on strong pain killers. night before my final exam I had what seemed like a panic attack in the early hours of the morning. I hadn't slept most the week. then over the next few months I developed more serious attacks putting me in hospital several times. After changing my diet they seem to have settled however my mental well being seems to have worsened, I have lost over 2 stone in weight and feel terrible even though everybody around me has noticed the weight loss and say I look great for it. My stomach has felt off for around 2 months now with no signs of improvement, I get shooting pains down each side aswell. I can no longer drink coffee as It makes me feel like I will have an attack and I feel very fragile and just wanna sleep and rest the next day if I have alcohol. I am 39 and prior to all this have always been fit and healthy. I've had blood tests and a recent bowel camera all of which have come back clear apart from raised blood pressure and cholesterol.
