Hi, my name is Holly and I am 20 years old. Up until about a year ago everything was fine and I rarely worried about anything at all. But after some stressful and highly upsetting events i've become a nervous wreck. I jump at anything, feel constantly tense and most of all am convinced that I am going to die soon. Any ache, pain or bump is now immediately cancer, aneurism, heart disease, blood clots or some life threatening illness. Ive been to the GP countless times recently and even went to AnE today thinking I was having a heart attack to be told that there is nothing wrong with me. Blood tests have repeatedly come back ok apart from "inflammation". I worry constantly every day about my health and feel like im on another planet and completely zone out when watching telly or talking to someone because Im too busy worrying about my health.
Symptoms I have had: Headaches, twitching, muscle pain, ibs, acne, light headedness, chest pain, raised heart beat, hearing my heart rate alot, extreme tiredness, irrational thoughts, panick when falling asleep, neck and back pain and tender muscles.
I havent been diagnosed with anxiety but if one of you could give me an opinion as to whether you think this is whats wrong with me then that would be great . Also what can I do to stop worrying and relax a little ?
