really want to google......
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:50:11 PM »
I have been having this ALS fear fro couple months now...Im sure many of u have read my posts....all because of one symptom (bitter taste in my mouth ) that everyone says is not a symptom of ALS anyway ???? I read one article about 2 women who developed ALS but had bitter taste in mouth for few months before then and article wondered if there was a link ? the article was 10 yrs old and nothing seems to have come of that research mayb? Anyway before I googled didnt even know what ALS was or the symptoms ...I wish I had never googled .....I havent googled in 2 weeks but I really feel the urge .....all I can think of is that any moment it will hit me wont be able to talk properly, swallow etc so aweful......googling wont help will it ? I think Im justtalking to myself trying to convince myself .......why do we do this ....why do we think this way .....

Even if it WAS a symptom, you'd already be getting OTHER symptoms that would be unmistakable.

I have bitter taste in my mouth for 3 weeks approx. It has nothing to do with ALS. ALS is very, very rare disease, and bitter taste is not a symptom. Those women might have had bitter taste because of acid reflux, or smth else and got ALS. Some people might have had nausea before developping ALS. It doesn't mean that nausea was the start of ALS.

Don't Google because it can only hurt you and stop worrying about ALS because you don't have it.

Arghhhh don't google!!! I always google and end up in a complete panic! I have band myself from google for good, my health anxiety was soo much better back in the day when I didn't have the internet! Go and read a book to give your mind a rest from worrying. :-)

We should never google.  It's a sure recipe to make our lives miserable.  I tend to pick the worst case scenario and make it my reality when I google.  And all common sense goes out the window because all I can focus on is that piece of information that might, could, what if, possibly, might happen.
