So I'm 22 years old, I've suffered with depression since I was 16, I've always had social anxiety since I was young but the. past year or so I've been having really bad panic attacks and keep worrying something is wrong with me. Last year for months I was so bad with health anxiety I caused myself gastritis and now I have ibs. I couldn't eat and lost loads of weight, I had horrible headaches and was sure I had some kind of tumour. I had all these different symptons and saw a Dr lots of times but kept getting told it was all anxiety and stress. My boyfriend stuck by me trough all of this and I managed to get through it all an get better. Now I feel it all coming back, I have really bad stomache pains, pains in my left leg which I'm convincing I have a blood clot, I have to keep asking my boyfriend if my leg looks ok. I keep checking it all the time and convincing myself that I have something wrong and I just really don't want to put my boyfriend through all this again. I don't want to go to the doctor because I'm afraid they will get annoyed with me. I've taken anti depressants, things to control anxiety and panic attacks and now I've started exercising but nothing seems to work. I just feel like I'm going to breakdown again and I don't know what to do.
