is it normal that i am constintly thinking lately that i have a serious illness?

i keep comming up with more and more symptoms and i can keep my head straight

i really have started to sleep better but i keep getting more symptoms that scare me...

when you have health anxiety do you feel the symptoms..

heartburn(but ive had that forever)

diarreah

constipation (but those two have gotten better with acidophilus and antiacids)

shoulder pain/neck stifness

Hey ByrdieTweet!! Gosh so sorry you are having such a hard time. Sad Has anything changed in your life that could be causing you stress?? I will say for me when my stomach is flared up with all that you descibe my panic attacks are HELL. This triggers so much panic for me.

I know for me also I have went through many times where I constantly thought everything was wrong with me. This is a part of the panic and anxiety. As long as you have been checked by the doctors and they have ruled everything out. Panic attacks can make us feel like there is seriously something wrong that of course is why it is so hard to break the cycle.

I am not sure about the bruises as I am not a doctor but have you been checked for anemia by chance?

Please keep posting and know that you are not alone and we are here for you. Smile
