One of the most frustrating things about HA is our inability to deal with symptoms that are new and unfamiliar from our normal litany of complaints. Whether you are in a current fit of anxiety, or have been feeling better for days, months or years, a new symptom is often the first thing to derail a sufferer of HA back into the downward spiral. I truly believe that to permanently conquer HA, people will often have to conquer the underlying issues such as fear of lack of control, fear of uncertainty, etc. even if one may not think that there is anything past the health anxiety itself. However, to begin that particular healing process, I think learning to deal with new symptoms that crop up is pretty essential in helping the healing process along.
I am wondering if you have a therapist to help you learn how to deal with the Anxiety ? I have a therapist and she is a great help in teaching me ways to lower my anxiety levels.
You may want to check out our resources at the top of this forum as there are links to topics including meditation etc. to teach you how to deal with anxiety.
