Anxiety/ocd or something real?

I have been feeling very nervous about my throat and lungs. I'm 22 I smoke and work outdoors in all weather. I feel a weird tightness in my throat and weird random shooting pains in my chest and back that I obsess about so now I don't know if its real or in my head, I understand my own hypochondriac problem cuz I have been this way most of my life, as well as anxiety. And even if I have no pains or discomforts I will think about my body feeling a certain way soo much it begins to happen, along with this overwhelming fear of dying from something like cancer at this age and leaving my son behind. Any advice? Anything would help. Thank you

Im a hypercondriact aswell, so i know how you feel, i get myself worked up thinking i have a fatal illness, and it always turns out being nothing. I think you should still go and get it checked out though....
