Can Health Anxiety/anxiety Make You Feel Like You Are Going
Yes it is possible
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.
I read your query and understand your concerns about the health anxiety.
In regard to your question about impact of anxiety I like to make it clear that anxiety can be very much crippling and is enough to impair all aspect of life including social, personal, occupational and other domains of life.
Especially in panic attack anxiety there is feeling that things are going to end although it last for few minutes and rarely extend to hours.
However in anxiety associated with OCD it can affect the individuals every time thus limiting the quality of life to bare survival.
I also like to inform you that Anxiety can affect almost every body systems and can cause symptoms pertaining to every system of body.
To diagnose the real condition I feel we need to have a proper one to one in person or video consultation.
The abnormal thoughts can be stopped with use of medications as well as psychotherapy. Among the medications SSRI and serotonergic TCAs are helpful medications while cognitive behaviour therapy on the other spectrum helps in dealing with health anxiety.
I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
