    I think some of these things are normal even for people without anxiety, but when you have health anxiety it can become threatening and all consuming... And then it seems the more you worry, the worse it becomes! My eyes play tricks on me and i was convinced i was having a stroke! I have suffered for 18 months and a therapist has helped me to see that i haven't had a stroke in all that time so it can hardly be a sign of an immenent one after all of this time...its shocking how many physical symptoms you can get!
