      i definitely hear you there. I have been fighting my health anxiety for 4 days now without trying to run to the ERcurrently I'm obsessed with blood clots right now and have had extreme lower calf pain now and of course my regular doctor doesn't want to scare me because he knows I have health anxiety but I too won't stop until I get it tested

    Hi Chelsea

    It probably depends on the doctor and your symptoms. When I went to the emergency room complaining of stomach pains and pressure/burning, they just told me to take gaviscon and make an appointment with my GP who then prescribed omeprazole.

    Hope you feel better soon.
