Do you struggle with Health Anxiety?
Do you constantly worry that you have a serious undiagnosed medical condition?
Are you exhausted by anxiety? Our fear can be exaggerated. Our thinking distorted. We see everything through the filter of possible danger. Fear becomes the lens through which we see the world.
We are all guilty of researching a symptom on the internet when we have a cold or worrying that a sore throat may be something worse, but health anxiety is more than that. People affected by health anxiety have repeated, obsessive thoughts that they have or worry about getting a particular illness.
Do you frequently check your body for signs of illness and are always asking people for reassurance that you’re not ill. Often the physical symptoms of anxiety become signs of an impending and life-threatening health problem.
The distress and negative impact upon lives that health anxiety can cause is real, with sufferer’s worrying that their GP may have misdiagnosed them. This preoccupation impacts negatively upon their lives, affecting work, study and relationships because of the constant need to seek reassurance about their health.
It’s normal to worry about the signs and symptoms of illness. We are only human, but, when does a natural concern for your health become something more serious, causing real anxiety problems.
What is health anxiety?
Someone with health anxiety will find themselves worrying a great deal about their health and may think they’re unwell when they’re not. They might check their body regularly for signs of illness, including unusual lumps, pains or other physical sensations. They may also be perpetually frightened of dying.
If you’re constantly completing self-scans of your body or checking parts of your body that particularly worry you throughout the day, this can be extremely draining. Your fear is so severe that you can’t overcome the compulsion to act upon it. This is why health anxiety is often compared to OCD.
Health anxiety can often cause people to check their symptoms online and/or worry about illnesses reported on in the media. It can lead to constantly asking for reassurance from friends, family and even their doctor. But, it can also mean that, even if you are given reassurance from your GP or another medical professional, you do not achieve peace of mind.
Whatever the reason or cause, health anxiety has a serious impact on a sufferer. Living in constant fear, worrying about your health and checking for new signs and symptoms can all takes their toll, leading to stress-related symptoms. Anxiety itself can often cause physical symptoms, including a fast heartbeat, chest pain and headaches. Someone with health anxiety may, therefore, mistake these symptoms for illness too and worry they are seriously ill. Living with this type of anxiety means you’re in a constant state of worry. Despite your logical mind telling you that you’re OK, the anxiety forces you into a feeling of panic.
