ULTRASTUPID fear of going to doctor
« on: January 23, 2014, 06:38:37 AM »
My ultrastupid fear : Tomorrow i will go to my doctor to check if everything is fine with me after i had a cold-like illness, or maybe cold infact. But Im always afraid  to go to every doctors office... really, just always when i have to go to doctor i freak out, even if it is a routine checkup, why ?

Hi,

I get nervous before routine appointments too.  I think mine comes from hoping they don't find something or have to do more tests.  I know it's silly.  The good thing is catching things early is the best way to stay healthy!  Try not to worry, I know it's hard.

It seems like a sort of test and I am likely to be the loser. So if I go once a year it's a lot. Believe it's a hazard to my health because blood pressure invariably goes through the roof.

My answer? Daily Vit. C (check with your doctor) which keeps my immune system busy and alert to all invaders.

Completely agree with tinam7 - going in even for a routine exam stresses me out hugely, my blood pressure and heart rate are always quite high when I go in, I sit in the waiting room shaking, and I feel hideously hideously stressed while I am there. So I tend to avoid the doctor and just try to stay healthy.  Periodically I go in for routine checkups but I am actually behind on them right now. Oddly I can go to some doctors (like the annual dermatology exam, I figure if they find anything they will just fix it) but any sort of appointment where they take blood, do other tests, drag out the dreaded blood pressure cuff, etc., is my worst nightmare.

I don't mind going its worrying about what they will find. Getting a mammogram done and routine tests are major major stresses to me. I am moving to Canada and yes I found out that I have to get physical done , they need chest xray and blood urine test etc and im scared to death!!! They check for hiv and do breast exam etc ugh I am going to hate it. I will be glad when its over and hope everything comes back good. I don't like getting blood work done bc I am afraid they will find something. I am crazy

im afraid to go too. im the kind of hypochondriac that does NOT seek medical attention, and avoids any reminder of illness. it takes A LOT for me to make an appointment. Basically im afraid to go because they'll tell me im dying. LOL. makes no sense right? if im dying i dont wanna know!! yet i always worry that i am. INNER TURMOIL!!!

If it's any comfort to you, it's very common to be nervous at the doctor's office. Many people without anxiety disorders get nervous at the doctor's.
