Mine is similar to AKW1. I will become fixated on something that I think is wrong with my body (headaches, sore muscles, convincing myself of lumps etc) and then obsessively focus on it, google symptoms, even google leading questions, for example 'could back ache be cancer' - almost to try and justify my worries. I can spend hours doing this and then get myself so stressed that I cannot sleep/focus/deal with day to day life. I feel weak, anxious, dizzy and knackered. These periods used to happen every now and then for a few days or so. Over the last year it's become more and more regular and literally takes over my life.
I've booked an appt to speak with a doctor about CBT and medication so I'm hoping this might be the start of taking control of it. I've been thinking about it for some time and have been putting it off. Having spoken with others experiencing a similar thing, I think this is the best way forward.
I hope the rest of you on this thread are doing okay. Thinking of you all
