It's awful isn't it. How r u finding your course? I am going through CBT have been for 6 months and I have got a lot better but I'm still not HA free :/ how did your anxiety trigger? I forgot to add to my list I had heart attack fears. Mine could of triggered from giving birth but 6 months after I had what I thought was a 'asthma' attack I know what they are like because I've had asthma since I was 10 months old. But the hospital were more worried about my fast heart rate I was getting more concerned when they were doing lots of tests and they tested for a blood clot which came back raised so I had to have a CT scan and have blood thinning injections just incase. Bear in mind I'm 21 years old. (Scan came back clear yippee) but from that day I've had HA. It's sad really I shouldn't be thinking like this at my age :( x

I shouldnt think about these things at my age neither, But its just too scary, my anxiety has been triggered by a bad dream, yes mo-foing dream. I think its is possible to find my thread asking people what started their ha, you can read stories of other people there, whic may be helpful.

I will divide mine between things I have totally believed I had and other that just crossed my mind.

Convinced.

M.S, Mouth Cancer, Cirrhosis of the Liver, Thyroid function problems, A generic muscle wasting/ malapsorbtion disease (I think I have this right now actually).

Crossed my mind.

ALS, Muscular Dystrophy, Heart Attack, Serratonin Syndrome (when I first started on medication).

I fully realise that this I am so obviously wrong about everything that I shouldn't even think to trust my instincts on my current issues but yet I still do. :(
