    Worry

    I am worrying my self to death. I had to go to the ER twice in the last month, the last time for a lump in my leg i feared was a blood clot. I was so scared my BP was 217/101 pulse 140. Dr believes the lump is just a bruise and will heal but everytime some little thing happens i stress to the point of almost stroking out. I really need some kind of tools to help me get myself under control.

    Re: Worry

    Myskye,
    Have you considered seeing a therapist? Health anxiety is a very real thing and it happens to allot of people .Talking it through (cognitive behavioral therapy) as well as medication can take the edge off this and help you deal with it.

    There are therapists who deal with health anxiety and you can find one by researching in your area. It would be a good idea for you to get this under control while you are realizing that it has become a problem for you; rather than waiting until its an every day occurrence which prevents you from living your best life.

    Talk to your family doctor if you do not have the ability to find someone on your own; they can help you find the right person!
