Hypocondria

Does anyone else here feel like every ache or pain is a deadly disease, or that something could actually be wrong with them?  I don't know if stress can turn into physical ailments, but I feel stupid to go to the doctor if nothing is seriously wrong.

I can totally relate to you!!!!  Any pain, ache or jus not feeling like myself makes me constantly think something is seriously wrong with me.  I would not feel dumb going to the doctor, its better to be safe then sorry!  I have been to the doctor a lot an she always checks jus to make sure.  She does kno that I suffer from anxiety too.  Seems to me that anxiety an stress make u feel worse.  I would also get into counciling if you feel like you have a problem plus there are medicines that help with anxiety an stress.  I wish you lots of luck.an if u ever need any advice feel free to ask.

I totally agree but its hard.to get our minds to accept that!  It's almost like if you believe something hard enough its real to u!  Mind over matter....  I would not be embarrassed though :)

It's terrible!! If I get a stomach ache I think I'm dying, if my head hurts I thinks it something major. It's just crazy and I know how you feel. I get embarrassed too. My doctor knows I suffer from anxiety, but I still feel like a complete *** when I go in for things like that.
