Constant anxiety and fear of dying from vCJD (Mad Cow) from consuming British candies

I recently learned that one of the candies I ate 17 years ago was made with in the UK with gelatin from British (mad) cows as well as milk. I have a huge phobia from this and since incubation can be long, I am constantly worried and as I can't get tested, I feel totally helpless.

Since then I am constantly anxious thinking that "these are the symptoms of the disease" and that I am dying. I feel tension through my whole body, sometimes I can't breathe, and just can't help myself.........knowing that incubation period can be 50 years and that almost all cows were infected in that time, makes me even more anxious.

Is there any cure for this? I have a feeling like I want to jump out of my skin

I feel tense all day even though I am trying not to think about it, but the more I try to get my thoughts off this, the more tense I feel.....
