Re: Health Anxiety - I HATE it!
Hi there! I can relate to you. I have had it happen so often to me. One doc's opinion is just not good enough for me. My father died in 1994 from Lymphoma. Last year I discovered a lump on my collarbone/clavicle area. I freaked out. Right away I acted on it. I went through tests including a chest CT Scan and several ultrasounds. First, second and third opinions. All tests come back fine. To this day, I am unsure about what it is. I have to literally fight the urge to have it rechecked yet AGAIN. I think that the only reason why I don't is because there are so many NEW issues that I need checked out. This is a terrible way to live. I hate health anxiety like you do. I was practically begged by my doc to try prozac for the OCD type obsession on my health. I fill the scripts and have yet to take that step. I am not sure if it works for anyone. What do you take for your anxiety?
