hi all, i have terrible health anxiety, every day i fear every illness and sensation i feel.i have always had terrible thoughts of being ill and been told its the end.i have a huge fear of the doctors and really struggle to go,even with the simple stuff as i alaways fear the worst. I am currently on ctrolapram 20mg a day and just started CBT having been to my doctors a few mths in such a mental state about dying, it ruins my everyday life, i have constant thoughts about every sensation in my body is a terminal discease.my latest fear started in july, i stopped taking my meds suddenly and thought i could cope, been very wrong, i went to the doctors after 4 weeks in such a state as my body had started getting tingling and pins and needles all over most days, she didnt do any tests and told me it was due to me stopping medication and the anxiety as well as drug withdrawel from the meds.
a few weeks later it disappeared when i relaxed as i was away, however now it has come bak even worse, i am going insane with it, it is all in my arms, fingers, legs,some times my chest feels tingly and even my lips occasionally, my CBT lady said it is a classic sign of anxiety, but i struggle to believe it is only that??
i have also started to get a cold sensation in my foot or fingers, i am now stressed it may be diabetes,Brain tumor, MS is big thought..... please please anyone help if you also suffer any of my similar sensations, it is worse at night time. i have noticed that it does get worse when i focus on it, or if i am busy it can disappear,
I am so so so stressed about it, it is ruining my life at the moment. i know i should go back to the doctors but i am too scared.
please anyone who has had a similar experience Help......
sorry ive rambled on.
