    What symptoms worry you the most??

    As an experiment please list, over the past year, all the symptoms you've experienced and what you thought/think they signalled.

    Then we can see how many symptoms, and how many of the suspected diagnoses, we all share.

    I'll go first:

    pvcs - heart attack
    shortness of breath - heart irregularity, heart attack, athsma attack, serious lung problem
    chest pains - heart attack, lung problem, chest tumour
    chest pain (lower central) - esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, strangulated hernia
    twitching muscles - parkinsons, ms
    stabbing head pains - stroke
    nosebleeds - brain tumour, stroke
    migraine - brain tumour, stroke
    dizziness - brain tumour, stroke, heart irregularity
    bad breath - esophagus cancer
    white tongue - cancer
    anxiety - adrenal gland tumour
    high blood pressure - adrenal gland tumour, heart problem
    itchy mole - skin cancer

    I have had health anxiety for 30 years so I have so many.

    pain in arm or hand - heartattack
    tingling in face and left arm - heartattack
    pain in leg - blood clot
    hard to breath - imminent death or heartattack
    feeling something is in my throat or choking me - heartattack

    As you can tell I have a fear of heartattack. I've thought alot about if it is really a fear of death and I don't think so. I think it is more a fear of being out of control. If I am sick I can not work which means I will lose my job which means I will lose my house which means I could lose my child and on and on

    I agree, what I fear more is being out of control of myself, my fears, and what's happening to me. I am more fearful of not being able to return to being my normal self than of death. I don't want to be this pathetic shadow of my former self.

    Hi

    I started the year thinking I had a brain tumor as I had constant headaches, tinnitus and blurred vision.

    I have had hormonal problems which I have thought was due to Ovarian or Uterine cancer.

    I am experiencing my 2nd flare up of IBS this year which always has alarming symptoms that make me obsess about bowel cancer.
