I'm just wondering if i can make myself start having symptoms by worrying too much about something?

For the last week i have been stressing about having a serious allergic reaction to something, and now my tongue and lips feel itchy/funny. I'm not allergic to anything ( i have mild hay fever ) but i've been worrying that i'm going to start having an allergic reaction to something i eat/drink all the time.

Could these symptoms be from worrying too much?

Yes, worrying about allergies can cause anxiety attacks, which can cause a tingly sensation in the lips and mouth.

Strongly suggest consulting a counselor to help you with this anxiety. And you also might try something called Rescue Remedy - it is an essence made from several different plants that helps with anxiety attacks and other traumas (including physical injuries).

Chronic Lyme, Bart., Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication/Chemical Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut dysmotility & non-specific inflammation, Lupus, Osteoporosis, etc.; G-Tube
Meds: Flagyl, Domperidone, Zofran, Claritin, Andrographis & other herbs, homeopathy, supplements, etc.
