  1. Hi All. Definitely have HA, but really feel I have a reason to worry now!
  2. Hello- I am a 42 year old mother of four that has experienced 7 months of health anxiety hell. It began last October when I started have stomach pains. I was convinced I had stomach cancer and that I was going to die and leave my husband and kids. I remember being so scared I was in the fetal position on the floor crying and begging God to let me live so I could see my kids grow up. I ended up having a scope and it came back all clear. I remember the relief I had when I found out I was ok. No sooner had I dodged that bullet then I started experiencing lightheadedness and dizziness. I now had another rabbit hole to go down. I was convinced I had a brain tumor or another neurological disease. The fear I experienced on a daily basis was so bad that my husband had to stay home most of that month. I would go into fits of uncontrollable crying and it was all I could do to find the strength to live. I was convinced I had a brain tumor or another neurological disease. All day long my mind raced between thoughts of death, disease, and suffering. I had an MRI done in December and it showed nothing wrong with my head. I then started experiencing all sorts of body aliments. My shoulders and arms started hurting, I would get bad headaches, my legs would feel weak, and all this time my anxiety just kept getting worse. I would have a couple weeks here and there that were better than others but for the most part I felt massive amounts of anxiety all day long. Now I have twitching in my right shoulder along with pain that shoots down my arm. I have pain in my left arm as well. My neck hurts all the time especially when I look down at my phone. I’m now starting to have pain in my feet and ankles. I have myself convinced that ALS is to blame for all my bodily aliments. I have the most loving and supportive husband who tells me all the time that my extreme anxiety and fear is to blame for all that is going on. I spend all day everyday thinking about if it is or if it isn’t a terrible deadly disease inside my body. There are many days I feel like I am losing my mind. All I am looking for is some reassurance and validation. There are many of you who are suffering just like I am and I am so grateful to have a place where others can help.
