Anglfrmhvn,
 
I know there are many on the boards that have issues with that.  You are not alone and I am sure others will be by to share shortly...

Hi, right now I am seeing a cognitive therapist. I seem to just go from one ailment to another, and it's ruining my quality of life. I've had enough of being scared. I really would like (through therapy), to find out why I'm like this. MA

Are you always running to the doctors with your ailments?  Does everything have to be something deadly?

It is very physically and emotionally draining. I understand the logic, I just can't understand why?

Do you get out at all? I know this is easier said than done - but, have you ever gone for a physical and forgot about it - even for a day? MA

i had this problem a while back , does any of your family suffer the same thing , my mum was allways saying there was something wrong with her , it rubbed off on us kids , this problem stoped for me when i met my husband , he always thinks positive , when ever he was sick i would see a diffrent reaction . it did help me alot , try not to think the worst , i no its horraible . i still suffer other anxiety problems , i am working on these things , the way forward is positave thinking , all we can do is keep going and talk about all are problems , my mum was diagnoised with breast cancer in 2006 , she is on the mend now , but it seems to have made her alot stronger . she tells me to tsop worriying now , thats the first life theratening illness shes ever had and shes 64 years old , she tells me now, worry when it happens . good luck xxxxxsam

my husband tells me i worry to much,if i tell him something is bothering me he'll say i guess u think u got cancer again.that is my biggest fear in life.and i have that problem too i got to the dr. and then everything is fine and i'm good for awhile then it something else that bothers me.i also noticed that i started being this way when i lost my grandpa back in 94.i was never a health freak and nothing ever bothered me except anxiety but the fear of something always wrong with me started in 94.

Hi, My husband is always positive as well.  He underreacts - I overreact.  He has calmed me down lots.  I send myself into full-blown panic attacks.  I work in health care - it makes it worse.  I have easy access to docs.  Mine started happening around the time I was 16.  It is a fear driven dilema.  It's always living with the what  if's........

You definately are not alone in any of this...mine started in around 94 as well when i moved out of my parents house and got my first apartment i was 21 and am now 32 still dealing with this crap...you would think that 11 years later it would get easier but it's not gotten much easier at least i am better able to understand it now though i don;t get quite as freaked out as i used to...lol we are an interesting bunch with great imaginations...thats for sure..

i so have this too, all the time.  sometimes my fear on one thing will calm down, only because i have a fear of something else.  i am very obsessive compulsive, and i can't stand it.  i worry all the time about what if i have this, or that...............  my boyfriend laughs at me, and makes jokes about the things i worry about, which i don't find funny, because the thoughts scare me so much.  Any little thing that i notice on my body, etc, or how i feel, i look up on the internet, which scares me even more, because it states 'that could be a sign of...........'  i have been like this for as long as i can remember, but especially the past year.  the past year has been so draining with all this garbage, i wish i could just stop worrying and carry on with my life.  it's so hard.  even if i go to the doctor's about something i think is wrong with me, i think that maybe the doctor doesn't know and i'ts serious even though they say it's nothing.  that's my ocd coming out when that happens though, and i try to tell myself that, but it doesn't work.

I think most A/P sufferers deal with health anxiety at one point if not often. Mine has gotten better thru therapy and medication. Still happens every so often, but not all the time. I found it helps to realize the wide array of physical symptoms A/P can cause (checking various on-line resources will provide a lengthy list!). When a symptom crops up, keep reminding yourself that its the A/P. It gets easier with time.

Great advice. I envy people that are not like this. It is obsessive compulsive disorder. What else could it be. We just go from symtom to symtom. Is this any fun? No! We need to help each other calm down. Take Care,
