Yes, stay away from Google. That was one thing I had to learn the hard way. Every little ache, every little pain, every little twitch I had, I would Google it and sure enough it would seem to confirm my worst fears. I thought for sure I had MS, ALS, all sorts of cancers, you name it. It turns out, I was fine. It really was all in my head. Many people do not realize that anxiety can wreak havoc on you body and make you feel sick even when you are not. My anxiety was so bad, my legs would go numb, I was constantly twitching, I was having unbelievable stomach issues, my heart was going crazy, I was having debilitating body aches so bad I couldn't get out of bed. It was awful, and I was sure I was dying. I just knew something was terribly wrong with me. Each morning when I woke up, I would cry from pure anxiety. I would have to try and soothe myself just to function. I felt like I was going crazy and I didn't know what to do. I thought I had lost myself and I would never get back to normal. I went to a doctor who ran a few tests on me. She told me I had tremendous anxiety and put me on medication for it. Lexapro, to be exact. She said it would help to prevent my anxiety from running rampid. It did. It has made a HUGE difference for me. Although, I have not relied on medication alone. I also went to a few therapy sessions to help work through my overwhelming feelings of anxiety, and she helped me deal with my hypochondria. I also developed several hobbies that keep me busy and I NEVER GOOGLE ANY SYMPTOMS
! No good can come from it. All it does it worry me, and that's something I don't need. I feel great now, it's been going on almost a year since my worst anxiety attacks ceased. I can still feel anxious from time to time, but those momentary feelings are a picnic compared to what I went through before!
