Am I a hypochondriac?

I think I've convinced myself I have HIV. I've only ever slept with one person but we didn't use protection and I'm not sure how many people he's been with. I look up the symptoms of HIV online daily. The only symptom I've had was one swollen lymph node in my neck about a year ago. I had an ultra sound on my neck yesterday but the doctor said there's nothing there and it's normal. HIV is al I think about 24/7. I'm scared to take a test but i need to know. Can you ask your GP for a test? Do you have to wait ages for the results? I couldn't wait weeks I'd go crazy.

Take a deep breath, your just fine. Just go get a blood test and STOP looking up HIV online.

Re: Am I a hypochondriac?

Yes. I am also a hypochondria and am scared of getting Guillian barre syndrome and meningitis. I got the meningitis vaccine but I'm still concerned. I'm currently doing therapy to get rid of this anxiety.
