I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and enjoying boxing day left over turkey!
I've suffered with quite bad health anxiety for the past 10 months now, it has been as a result of surgery after I broke my wrist in march.
My anxiety focuses on something wrong with my brain which will result in surgery and severe disability being the best case scenario. Everytime I had a headache it can only mean a hemorrhage or tumour, I am literally scared of everything that could potentially be wrong with me. The doctor has been as supportive as he can be, although he will not send me for a scan as there is no need, and he has even said that he wouldn't risk his career by not sending me if he thought there was something wrong.
Every single day I feel giddy, foggy headed and strained vision. I've started to believe that it is the anxiety that is powerful enough to make me feel this way, but I always have doubt. I've decided to post now as was just on the way back from the shop and managed to bang my head on the car boot and now think I have a hemorrhage (although it wasn't a hard knock at all, not even a mark was left!)
I need to break this, I am in therapy, and it has helped to some degree but still struggle on.
Hearing from people who are going through something similar or even those who have beat it please reply it would be lovely to hear from you!
