Health nxiety?
« on: February 27, 2014, 07:31:51 PM »
Anyone else have this? I feel like I am at the doctor every week for something and whatever it is always turns outto be anxiety related or so minor that I probably didn't need to go. I feel like it's getting a little ridiculous.
How do you manage this?

Hi, well if I come down with something I usually wait 1-2 weeks---if it's not gone by then I'll go to the doctor.

Take care :)

Hi Lam...

Some four-to-five years ago, I had my initial symptoms that led-up to my diagnosis of GAD and panic attacks..  Before I accepted that I had GAD, I was absolutely certain that I had something physically wrong with me.  I spend months seeing all types of specialists, and having test after test done, with each one coming out normal.

Once I started seeing a psychiatrist to manage my mental health care issues, and saw a psychologist for therapy, I was able to see great improvement, and eventually returned to my former self.

You didn't mention in your post, what you are doing to treat your anxiety.  I am currently on an anti-depressant, and also seeing a therapist for cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).  Chances are that if you get proper treatment for your anxiety issues, most if not all of your symptoms will become a thing of the past.

The very best to you, Lam!...  Chuck :grinning-smiley-003:

Thanks for the reply.
I have started exercising and managing diet. Eating healthier foods to feel better about myself. I am waiting to see a therapist. I was seeing a therapist for awhile and then her hours change and I couldn't make it. So I recently found a new one I will see in a few weeks.

I have health anxiety.
It is a pain.
I try and wait things out.
I have good reason to have this though (I will not get into it though).
One of the things that has helped me is doing acupuncture.
