I am 25 and I was diagnosed with severe health anxiety around 5 years ago. This all started when I became seriously poorly on a family holiday in Egypt when I was 15. I have worried about so many diseases and conditions over the years and this ends up taking over my life. I mainly worry about diseases/conditions that have no cure and that are really debilitating. My trigger is usually being ill (even a common cold) I struggle to handle being poorly and then start worrying. At the minute I am off work and have started worrying that I have ME. I am in a terrible sleep routine, often feel quite tired and have body aches. Does anyone else suffer with Severe health anxiety and worry about conditions such as ME? I am also terrible for googling things!
