I was doing pretty well with hypochondria. Hadn't had any hypochondriac episodes for a long time...until now. Today I'm worrying about seizures.
I used to have epilepsy, but since "grew out of it." I went for an EEG a while back and was told by my doctor told me everything was ok and I could stop taking medication. But still, every once in a while I start worrying about having another one.
I already had the idea in my head, because it's July and that's around when most of my seizures have occured. I woke up today feeling tired, and I still do. This worried me even more, as tiredness was one of the main triggers of my seizures.
I continue to worry about it now. Every small sensation on my face (I used to get face numbness just before a seizure) worries me, and causes me to touch my face, which only worsens the problem. I almost got over it, until I read on the Internet (from a pretty unrelated search) that some people report a metallic taste in the mouth before a seizure, which I sort of have right now...but I just ate chicken, and I think it could just be the leftover taste of that.
This was kind of a weird rambling post, but anyway, how do I stop worrying about this? Also, I would like to know if anxiety could cause an increased awareness of the sensation on my face, which appear to increase whenever I worry about seizures.
