Why am I so anxious about my health?
Q: Can anxiety about health and phobia that I have some grave disease cause poor health and immunity problems? Since the last 1 year, I have been living in phobia and negativity. Since the last 5 months I have been facing series of problems like tonsillitis, stomach infection, gingivitis, acidity etc. When one gets cured the other shows up and the problems recur after a while. As a result, I must have consumed loads of prescribed medicine including variety of anti-biotics. I have to take anti-acid medicine almost every other day. I wish to come out of this negativity & medical loop. Please suggest a way out.
A:Mere anxiety about ones health does not cause tonsillitis and acidity. Do you feel actually anxious and depressed most of the time, and do these emotions increase over time? if yes then you need to consult a psychiatrist.
