Health Anxiety
« on: August 17, 2013, 08:22:08 AM »
Totally new to this, had a health scare 15 months ago after breast mammogram, had enlarged lymph nodes and lump, but all came back clear thank god but since then I have been totally engrossed with worry about cancer and dying.  I am 53 years old.   I went to doctor two days ago after having been there for 18 months and she prescribed Lexipro 10 mg.  I have not been on meds before.  I have now become obsessed with weight and see that I am losing weight for no reason.  I eat ok.  Anyone experience anything similar.

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section.
