Sounds like OCD or Panic Dissorder. All of the Anxiety dissorders overlap at times, so you may have symptoms from a variety of anxiety dissorders. Anyway, what you are describing is not uncommon. There are may people on this board who have anxiety dissorders who manifest themselves in health anxiety, so you are NOT alone at all. You do however need to go to a doctor and get some help. This is not something that will go away on its own. The relaps percentage for anxiety dissorders is almost 85% even after being treated with drugs. The best long term scenario is to take drugs for your lifetime, but the trick is finding the right one. Usually the doctor will prescribe a Benzo with an antidepressant to get you throught the initial side effects of the antidepressant, however, it is hard to tell if the meds are going to work until the Benzos are stopped and the antidepressant has been used for a great deal of time (couple months). If it isn't working at that point, don't get upset just try a different combo. I have OCD, however it manifests itself in other negative thoughts, but I take Xanax alone 2-2.5 mg per day and it has helped a lot. The first step is to get to a doctor though and get diagnosed.

Good luck,
OE
