    Hello everyone!

    My name is Kevin I'm 24 years old and I think I have anxiety... well health anxiety to be exact and I hope this is a place I can find some answers on what is really going on inside my head.

    A little background info on where I think my anxiety started.

    A few weeks ago well nearly a month now I had a routine physical and went through the loops and bounds of it, I had blood work done which showed high triglycerides and liver function. I had another blood test done to rule out hepatitis since that is one cause of a high liver function test, that came back negative so that was good. So my doc wanted me to get a ultrasound done which I did and he couldn't see anything. I was pretty freaked out because I'm a pretty healthy guy I became lazy when I got my job for web design, the only thing was my horrible diet and lack of exercise which was caused by me being lazy. so I went for a ct scan and they were able to see some fatty liver.. which is expected with what I described above with blood work and LFT.

    So once all that was done my doc told me to just eat right and work out to get my weight down. I was @ 248 the first time I saw him back in late may and when I saw him back in june I was down to 235. I was really stoked and excited you know.

    Before I went to the doctors, I had no worries of health and nothing ever came to my mind about being sick or worry about this dot on my arm. I can now say since I've been and a few weeks after I was fine until I started to look for things on my arms or my eyes. I really think I have health anxiety I jump to worst case situations thinking I have this disease or that one.. I'm gonna die today or what not. I started to google them online and see if I have any symptoms listed.. I really hate this, I'm driving my girlfriend mad and my parent's asking them to feel if I have a bump or if I look sick. I get the same response, your ok! your fine and I do know I just had a physical and everything came back great. I think me thinking about it's draining me mentally and emotionally and I want to feel normal again. I feel my self thinking about every breath I take and wondering if that was normal or if I feel normal sitting at work. Sometimes I think stress is causing me to be sick and I'm fabricating a pain in my neck or something. I hate this and I hope I can find some way of understanding it and overcoming anxiety.

    I do apologize for such a lengthy introduction and I greatly appreciate the chance to introduce my self.

    Cheers!
