I'm new here and nervous to post on a message board. I have had health anxiety for many years and it seems to be getting worse. I am here to find some help. Health Anxiety has taken over my life and I can't concentrate or enjoy the things i usually do. I have been in this state many times over the last several years, but it is happening more often and is becoming constant. Everytime I go for a check-up of any kind, I seem to get sent for some test, which results in more tests, with things always being false positive. EAch time I go through months of panic, high blood pressure, inability to function, etc. I am hoping that this website will help me learn to manage and cope with my fears. I am involved in counseling, but have not tried talking to others with the same problem - so I hope this will help me.
