Hi all ive suffered health anxiety since the sudden death of my dad on december 1st last year. I have every terminal medical condition going (in my head) DVTs , Heart attack , Cervical cancer , A brain tumour just to name a few . I had my first ever smear results last week which were clear and i told my self if they came back normal (which they did). Then i was going to put a stop to the anxiety once and for all. So i did and felt great! Except i then came down with a sinus ear and throat infection last week i am on antibiotics at the moment and feeling slightly better not 100% . But the anxiety seems to be coming back again and so does the googling which i managed to stop. I feel so dizzy / light headed , have a headache nearly everyday , tight sore neck and really tender spots on the tops of my shoulders , feels like my heart is beating too slowly , blurred vision , arms and legs feel like jelly they are just some of the symptoms ive got and haf on most days since my dad died. i have suffered headaches and migraines since the age of 11 . But im now starting to think along the lines of brain tumour again and its really putting a downer on things im going on holiday in 9 days with my partner and 4 children and just want to be normal so i dont mess the holiday up !!! Why is anxiety so cruel? I am on diazepam 4-5 mgs a day but its making me so dopey i cant concentrate , i forget what im doing sometimes i get my words mixed up is this normal for diazepam longterm use? I guess im just looking for some support and help why do i keep going back to anxiety? Why cant i just beat it and get my life back properly? Do any of u have any ideas on how to try and reject the negative thoughts? Any tips or help would be great and to also hear your symptoms do any of u experiance the ones i do? . I look forward to some replys hopefully :-) :-)
