Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to health care magic

You possibly have "obsessive compulsive disorder" or "obsessive compulsive spectrum disorder- hypochondriasis".
OCD consists of repeated thoughts (obsessions) and compulsive behaviour (not essential). I advise you to consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation, diagnosis and management.
Hope it helps
Good Luck

Emergency Medicine Specialist Dr. Sheeba Stephen's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I understand that you are going through a stressful time because of your negative thinking pattern and your excessive fears / anxiety about having a major health problem. Your symptoms seem to be indicative of an anxiety disorder. You do need to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome these fears and negative thoughts.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
