Anytime I have something happen with my body, I think the worst. I get scared. I started to worry more and more. Eventually, I will start looking up symptoms online and causes. This sometimes makes me feel better but most of the time, it makes things worse. I am getting older and have been told by not one but three different doctors that my body is going through changes and I worry too much. How can I rationalize these thoughts without going off the deep end?
I do the same thing! I actually had a doctor yell at me over googling symptoms. She said that it is the worst thing you could do. If you have any concerns, it is best to get looked at by a doctor even if that means going to a few different ones just to get peace of mind.
