    Hi im also suffering with health anxiety, iv somehow convinced myself that I got epilepsy, and even when people tell me im fine it still wont get out of my head. I dont know where this has come from but it affects me daily as iv got a fear of lights now. Anyhow before I had this I also thought I had a brain tumour and I was getting headaches everyday but the dr said the headaches are through stress and anxiety  and once I kept saying that to myself everytime my head hurt it slowly went out of my mind. I take 500mg of rhodeola rosea which is a herbal remedy for anxiety, is has helped me alot and I also use bach rescue remedy which is herbal aswel as I dont like taking over the counter or prescribed tablets. Hope you feel better soon.

      Yes thats all part of the anxiety it totally messes with your head. Because your focusing on it so much u pick up on every little pain, twitch etc i had health anxiety about 10years ago when I was 17 I thought I had every illness going but I managed to get over that.. Next time u feel panicky just try to distract yourself by thinking of happy things, sing a song in ur head or watch a film. Also dont look things up online like I used to as it makes you feel 10 times worse in the end. u will get passed this u just got to keep calm when the oanic starts and keep telling  yourself your fine and its all anxiety.

    Hey jake. I know 100% how you feel because I worry about the same thing and been going through the same thing.but the more I look online at things like this, the less scared I am and realize it could simply be anxiety. I get head pressure, headaches, sharp pains like an ice pick feeling that comes and goes, scalp pain, and also now getting pains all over my body. But it's only when I have my attacks... But the head pain may or may not be perist.  I know its hard to do, but you need to try to take your mind off it, I know it's easier said than done. Do you have persist symptoms? depending on my day I do, but if I'm busy with something else I dont. Like today, I'm writing this so I'm thinking about it so of corse I feel something, but earlier, I was onlinw looking at nails and make up, doing the girl thing, and I felt fine. You should go seek help, medication does work wonders and can help. I'm about to start my new medication tonivht actually and hopefully within a week I see a differencesmile take care and feel better soon!

      I worry too. It's always on my mind that I could have a tumor, but these seem to be "normal" things to feel. I have no doubt though in the back of my mind when I am calm, none of this started happening for me until I became stressed out. I went through a lot and still isn't over yet. I bet once it is And I starr my medication it'll be gone.

      Hello Victoria....

      I suffer from anxiety. I been like this about 2months. It makes me worry about this. One time I felt like this about 15 years ago. It didn't take that long to go away. Now I just got it back again. I have alot of pressure in my head, shooting pain in my stomache. It scares me when I feel these symptoms. Alot of times I had to go to the ER b/c of this. I get scare about my anxiety coming back. Its hard not to think about it. Its a scary feeling. When I feel like this I just PRAY🙇 to GOD about this. Then my anxiety calms down. I feel good when I don't feel the anxiety. I have to keep myself busy some how. I start feeling like this as soon as I wake up in the morning. I hate that feeling. Victoria.... What is the medicine you take called?

      Hey Peggy! I'm the same way, my anxiety strts the moment I wake up, but its been getting better. I'm about to start pristiq, I'm honestly scared to try it because I've tried clexa? I think that's some what close to how it's spelt and for a week, I had horrible side effects. Lexapro is good, I loved it but I couldn't afford it and this new stuff my doctor gave me for free to help me out.

      Hi Peggy, If your looking for a good herbal remedy I take 500mg of rhodeola rosea every morning and it's helped me a lot with my anxiety, it is a herbal remedy for treating anxiety and depression. I was given the antidepressant citolopram by my dr which I forced myself to take for 3 days then I stopped as I hate the thought of taking any tablets as I panic about side affects but I'm fine with taking these herbal tablets for some reason.
