Yes actually I am glad someone asked this question because if you are dealing with Hypochondria then you feel you have every illness out there at one point and time or the symptoms from anxiety and panic make us feel so bad we know something has to be wrong well sometimes not often things can be wrong so I always tell everyone to go get checked out and have those test ran and labs at any age for some reason people assume you can not get anything at a young age well it is more rare but not impossible..
Doctors for the most part will write many off saying it is just anxiety sadly but everyone needs a good physical and if your Doctor says No then ask why not and if they keep putting you off then find a new Doctor.
I have suffered since childhood with anxiety but never understood what it was and even as an adult I didn't know then back in 2000 I felt odd so of course I did see a Doctor he told me he thought I was depressed but I wasn't feeling depressed now looking back I was stressed and I was always OCD.. but I listened to the Doctor and started on depression meds.. huge mistake!back fired on me and caused full blown panic attacks so you do have to question Doctors and research reliable sites and ask questions.
I became very aware of my body and fearing Heart Attacks and Cancer also due to a hysterectomy I started having horrible headaches.. so yes I had a total hysterectomy because of a few cyst.. Big Mistake!! .. once again trusting a Doctor! always see another doc for a second opinion . I had so many test done because my head hurt so bad and then I was fired from my job and became agoraphobic and things just snowballed..
Now I take Thyroid Meds for Hypothyroidism, Aciphex for my stomach etc.. Depression and Anxiety Meds.. so if that wasn't enough last year I went in thinking I was having a heart attack well all the test said no but the test said I was Pregnant which was impossible so more testing showed I had a Brain Tumor-Meningioma , Hernia in my Stomach, Lesion on my Rt Kidney, Fluid around my heart, Fragments of Bones floating around in my spine due to deterioration .
So at age 47 I am struggling but I still love living and want to keep doing so .. being Bi-Polar on top of other many mental health issues doesn't help either.
I could go on but better stop lol.... the reason I posted and I know post are hard to understand but heck so am I ! lol... is that always get checked out and ask for testing once you get your results learn to live with them and get help either way .
I am going back into therapy and getting myself prepared for Brain Surgery but I also am dealing with My Mom who isn't well right now so she will come first.
We are human beings what we do fear may come true it may not and what I see the most that people Fear on here about are very slim things that actually happen..
People want to know about my Tumor well I cant tell them how one feels because I have not felt well for years and I had MRI's and MRA's etc.. done and nothing showed up back then and I felt bad then and not everyone is the same in any Illness even with Mental Health we are all different in how we feel and how we cope.
Live for today and know Life can get better if we work on it no matter what!!
Take care everyone and always find your source of Happiness for me it is my Love of God and my Family and some Good Friends..
