After all my visits to the hospital and to the doctor, finding out a lot about my stomach and what could happen etc. have started to get me worried that something bad will happen to me when I start getting stomach pains. I mean, last month I could have a tummy ache and be fine with it. Now, I instantly become cautious and the first thing I do is panic, and I know that isn't good but I really can't help it. A few days after one of the trips to the doctors, I had one of the symptoms of appendicitis (what I was suspected to have) and just had a small panic attack. What's worse is that now I become very anxious when I'm home alone because I worry something will happen and no-one will be there to help me.
All of this has just made me more aware of pain I get generally and then when I notice, I start worrying. Is there any advice you can offer me?
