For about a year now i’ve struggled with Health Anxiety. It seems to fluctuate on how bad it is, but for the past few weeks i’ve really been on a low. I feel like i’m not even in my body anymore, i check anything and everything that happens around my body: pains,cramps,sensations or just any weird feeling. I always feel the urge to call the hospital right away. Ive had multiple blood tests and ecgs which have all come back mostly clear, but i can’t seem to shake the idea that there is something wrong with me. I feel like i am going insane constantly worrying from the moment i wake up till the moment i get to sleep, that is if i get any sleep at all. It’s eating away at my mind that much that i can’t sleep in fear of dying in my sleep, i used to think of sleep as an escape from all of this but as the Anxiety got worse sleep gad become something i start to dread. The symptoms are always worse at night: coughing, pains, shortness of breath. I have only just turned 16 and i am so consumed by this. My whole family don’t believe a word i say and i feel like i’m trapped in a cage with my mind. It’s like i get mad when the Doctors say that it’s “just Anxiety” because that doesn’t put me at ease at all, frankly makes me feel so much worse. I’d rather have a physical diagnosis, otherwise i just think the Doctor missed something. Right now i’m having such a bad episode where i feel sort of like i am high. Someone please help me.
