The brain tumour thing is the normal thing for me, however the past 2 days i'm having a heart attack and/or heart disease cos I have a tightness feeling around my heart, which i'm sure is all part of it, anybody else the same?

Heart attack, heart disease and heart failure mainly,
although lately the back of my head also began to hurt
and i'm scared it's a brain anurysm.
Also dvt because I sometimes get a sharp pain in my left leg and
sometimes a sharp pain in my chest when I breathe in, so im
scared its a pulmonary embolism...

Ha! My first post on here, and this is probably the best category to do it under! I have to count on my fingers and toes how many times i've been to my doctor this year alone! It's ranged from chlymidia to diabetes to a thyroid problem, and i'll probably be going back soon 'cuz now I suspect penile cancer . . . Even though my urine always comes back clean. (i think I have to do the same counting for urine tests, too.)

only thing he's ever diagnosed me with is depression/anxiety.
And an infected toe.

And I keep telling myself it's all in my head, but i'm no medical expert-what the hell do I know?!?

It's terrible.

I have a lot of them and need to stop reading the internet and maybe change my major from a medical field in college. I am in very good shape and I am eating right, working out, practicing sexual abstiance, but I still worry. I have never been diagnosed with a disease other than flu and fever stuff. I have been self diagnosed by many different diseases. This may seem like a joke, but it is not.

Sclerosis (curving of the spinal column)
stroke
glucoma (tingling in the eyes. My grandma has it)
diabities
prostate cancer
bladder cancer
bladder infection
kidney infection
kidney stones (my grandpa had it)
prostatis
overreactive bladder (i'm 19)
the above 7 diseases were self diagnosed in a period of 2 weeks when I had a little wierd feeling when urinating. Doctor did tests and everything was okay.
Nerveous system disorders
rhemutoid athiritis (my mom has it)
tuburculosis
brain tumor
jock itch
yeast infection
steph infection
follicititus
herpes (it looks like it was acne on my thighs)
chlamyadia (spelling)
genital warts
aids (i'm a virgin, and worrying about stds)
pinkeye infection
herpes infection in the eye (my eye problem seemed to be related to a cornea abbrasion which means that my cornea got cut by contact lens. It is a little more severe than pinkeye but much less severe then a herpes infection in the eye)


i am 19 and I probably should stop using webmd! If you are feeling great and think your perfect than never do a self diagnosis as it can get you worried! I am trying my best not to use webmd.

I also forgot about colon cancer, disk disorders and barbers itch. I think this is about all.


I was also thinking about going to a remote location on earth where there is no internet and bookstores so I can stay worry free.

The worst is that I know I shouldn't go on there, but that site has like a hypochondriac tractor beam or something! It draws me in and there's nothing I can do except diagnose myself with everything!

Depression/anxiety
Also my first post...Was diagnosed with generalized anxiety...Was fine 6 months ago. I started taking 400mg of magnesium glycinate 3 times a day, along with a co-enzme b complex. It has really helped. Had been on cymbalta, zoloft and curently paxel...None of it worked.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who checks webmd everytime I have a pain.. Luckily I hate going to the doctor so I rarely investigate the problem farther then my computer, unless I know there's something really wrong. It did help me diagnose my gerd (heartburn) a few years ago!

And here I thought I was going crazy. It's comforting to know that i'm not the only one who thinks he/she is dying 24/7. It comforts me, really.

Aneurism
ulcer
cancerous tumor
strep throat
mono (i was actually depressed... Go figure)
carpel tunnel

that's it. But keep in mind I don't do the webmd... And have been obsessed with these five things for long periods of my relatively short life. I think I actually have an ulcer. Wonder why. Ps. I'm twenty.

My doctor has diagnosed me with:

depression, anxiety (generalized and social), benign tumor, chronic tendenitis in my wrists... And he also let me know, when I had knee surgery, that my miniscus is not how is should be -- and that my other joints could be similar.

I Thought I Was the Only Nut Lol
I diagnose myself with things all the time. I always think im dying. I never had this till this summer when to very close people to me died. Anyway I have thought I had these problems all summer.
Heart attacks
strokes
lung cancer
colon cancer
bleeding ulcers
brain tumor
brain anyerism
stomach cancer
im really starting to wonder if I might be becoming a hypocondriac. My aunt is a hypocondriac. Maybe its herreditory but I sure thought I would have been like this for longer than just one summer. The only things the docs have diagnosed are athsma, pannic attacks, and nonulceric dysplacia. This is after a full summer of every test you can imagine throughout this summer.
