health anxiety

Hi all!

Does anyone in this board have health anxiety? I go through phases where I'm afraid I have/might end up having some disease! The one I worry about the most is cancer - do any of you get 2 and 3 opinions when the first doctor tells you you're fine?

Re: health anxiety

There are many people that suffer from anxiety and it doesn't have to be just about health concerns such as yours. Anxiety is a real disorder. Have you talked to your GP or any other doc about this. There are meds out there to help with this.

You are not alone. Please keep posting. There are many who suffer with anxiety along with other diseases/disorders at the same time.

Hang in there and let me know. I do care.

Re: health anxiety

to Jenn and Marion - thank you! I am on Effexor - I am going to see a therapist in September who specializes in anxiety and OCD - (I was diagnosed with OCD in the late 90's - ) I helps to know I'm not alone!
