hope everything is well this evening, I’m new here and suffer from chronic health anxiety , I am so bad atm I am scared to message out for fear of the answers I may get ... suffering from 2 new diagnosis this week hyperparathyroidism and developed a lump near my (r) side of neck/back near shoulder could be a cyst or lipoma , all I know is I am suffering so much this week and could do support ... but nothing scary !!!

    Hi @anxietygirl and welcome to the community! I'm sorry to hear how you're feeling, having experienced health anxiety in the past myself I know it is scary. Unfortunately, we are not medical professionals, I would advise that if you're more concerned than usual, then speak to your GP.  I know it's incredibly daunting but best to get checked :)

    Hi @anxietygirl. I'm sorry you're struggling so much with this at the moment. Please try not to worry about the sort of responses you'll get here. We aim for this place to be a safe space.
    Unfortunately as Ami said, we're not medical professionals so we can't advise or reassure you in that regard, but it would really be best to speak to your GP about your concerns.

    Thank you I have spoken to my gp 🙂 but my anxiety is the same , I know there is nothing anyone can say or do to ease my concerns really, as it’s up to me to rationalise this , but I do feel better knowing that I can  talk to people on here 🙂

    Hi @anxietygirl

    That is great that you have spoken to your gp.

    Yes we are all here for you.

    You may find that doing a 1-1 session & getting things off your “chest” you may find that that will be very useful ????

    Please please let me know if that will help????
