And it would suddenly seem as though I had all the symptoms that were described for any type of disease I was worried about at the time.Of course, this was not the case and I was fine.
However, if you do have a history of any professionally diagnosed illness that may cause your symptoms, or they do become worse, get it checked out.
In the meantime find ways to relax and assure yourself that you are fine, because you probably are.
Sometimes, when I am in different situation I get scared and then I start to feel that I lose control over my body...
Also sometimes when I am in traffic and it's crowded I get some strange feelings...I feel like running away in a safe place, without nobody...without cars...it's weird!
I had the same problems as yours, I am quite often thinking about all the worse diseases, from brain tumor to all types of cancers...
Now I started not to look anymore so much on the internet...
