Ongoing anxiety and neck tension

Posted , 4 users are following.

4months ago I got anxiety n I've had tons of symtoms. But now as of yesterday my neck, from below my jaw to my throat hurts. Actually it just hurts when I turn my neck, but it's making me even more nervous.

I also get aches&pains all over, also whenever I Google symtoms of illnesses I seem to somehow get those symtoms. I keep checking my body for signs of illness n I always feel like I'm gonna die.

I sometimes get a break from all symtoms but then they come back. I'm a worrier who's stressed n has GAD n I'm not on any meds either.

    Natalie don't Google your sysmtoms just go to your GP... It will trigger your anxiety more... Just like you every time I have pain I Google it and it doesn't help me it adds more worrying...I also have GERD...

    There you said it yourself whenever you look up illnesses on google you imagine you have them.   If only everyone with GAD would see this and stop the urge to research illnesses that they don't have.  Try not to make an illness yours. then you start to recover.

    Hi there I had to stop googling symptons as I had everything under the sun then. It does not help it only hinders. I don't take meds either. Anxiety and all the symptoms suck but tell yourself that is all it is. If you are worried at all see your GP and discuss everything. Ask about seeing a therapist, talking can really help. I wish you well, you will get through it.cheesygrin

    Thanks everyone, trust me I know I shouldn't Google anything but every once I'm awhile I give in to the urge...and end up sorry.

    I don't have insurance so seeing a GO and therapist will take awhile. But I did see a doctor in January n he said I had high anxiety n high stress levels.
