    • Hello guys, I haven't been here in a few months, I've been feeling a lot better for the most part about my health anxiety. I've been a lot less stressed out, and slowly going back to my life. However, for the past few days, I've had these weird tongue symptoms. I've been experiencing some tongue twitches as well as some tingling like sensations on my hard palate from time to time. I'm not gonna lie, tongue twitches freak me out, I think I've read way to many scary stuff on Google in the beginning of my twitching saga.  I'm a little puzzled because I thought I was doing relatively better anxiety wise. I still have some recurrent moments of fear and doubts about my twitching, but it is not as debilitating as it was in the very beginning in 2017 when I first started twitching. The fact that my anxiety is not as intense as it was in the beginning, but I'm still having these symptoms makes me more anxious......if that makes any sense lol. I guess what I'm wondering is how do you know you've overcome your health anxiety? Am I just mistaking a decrease in the intensity of my anxiety for a lack of anxiety? Are tongue twitches common in anxiety, and a signal that my HA is very much still there, even if I'm no longer having panic attacks like in the beginning?  Obviously being here is an indication that I'm worried about the tongue twitches, and lo and behold I've been twitching all over tonight, as I focus more and more on my tongue. I'd really love to hear your perspective on this guys.    Thanks in advance
    • Lymphnodes are not a bad thing i get them swollen every year. It 99% percent likely its just doing it's job then cancer.  Acne can cause a swollen node. Just saying.
    • I’ve been having gastro freakouts for months and I brought up stool color to my GP. Like @Iugrad91 said, colors vary for a ton of reasons, and my doctor told me the same thing. He also said that shades of brown, green, and (most shades of) yellow were absolutely normal. 
    • Well I looked at a lymph node diagram and there is a lymph node exactly where it is located. Believe me I wanted to believe it was a pimple, especially because I haven’t been doing too bad with my anxiety. A couple scares here and there but mostly under control. But this has to be more than a pimple and I don’t think it’s a cyst. Basically it doean’t move under my skin, or moves with my skin. And there’s no bump you can see on the surface and it’s not red but you can definitely feel it. One friend told me ir’s A lymph node, another told me it’s a pimple. My brain tells me I’m crazy. 
    • My gf has also had a cyst in a similar location. Also, those horror stories you mention are rare cases; the exceptions, if you will. You can't read a story and expect that it apply to you as well. I know that feeling, I used to do it all the time!
