First of all, I'm 14 years old and have a history of panic attacks. I've had swollen lymph nodes for about 5 years behind my ears. Over the summer i suddenly became concerned about this, I worried so much that i made myself sick. I convinced my mom to get me a ct scan on my head to check for brain tumors, everything came back normal. Then i decided i must have a liver tumor(my cousin died of one last summer) so i had a ct scan done on my stomach and a blood test. Everything came back normal once again. For the past two months, my health anxiety has gone away. Now my lymph nodes have began hurting, i have headaches, im weak tired, my throat and ears are mildly sore, and my neck has been bothering me. I'm scared i may have leukemia. However, my mom says its just my anxiety. None of my friends take me seriously either. but what do you think? leukemia or health anxiety once again?? i had that blood test done 2 months ago and it was completely normal. Please respond, any help would be appreciated..

Re: hypochondria

im no doctor BUT I would say its anxiety again since your blood work came back fine not long ago.I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder 12 yrs ago and have had loads of physical symptoms too.You could also have a virus in your system though,but it will pass try and make sure you eat,right,exercise,drink water.maybe try some vitamins
