Anyone else?..
« on: May 30, 2014, 05:53:32 AM »
Hi.

For more than 6 months i been self diagnosing Physical & Mental illness.. I would read about something and because one or two symptoms looked like me i would belive i had the disease.. I would then look more and more into it, read all i could about it to convince myself i didn have it.. but that only made it worse.. cause, i would start to belive i had ALL the other symptoms connected to that disease.. and i would start to copy the symptoms and belive i had symptoms i didn even have in the first place..

examble: I had headache.. i looked it up.. thought i had brain tumor.. i read all the symptoms.. one symptom was something like "Paralyzed arm" or similar.. My mind would think "why dont i have that? better start having it" and my arm would feel weird.. heavy.. almost like i couldn move it..

Is this common with Anxiety & OCD? Anyone else does this? its terrible..

Hi nichlas224, sorry you're going through a tough time. But to answer your question YES YES AND YES. People w anxiety disorders are very sensitive to certain things. I used to and still do at times do what you are doing. Best advise I can give you is to not use google for health anxiety reasons lol, makes it ten times worse! Take care.
