ive been suffering with anxiety for years but for the past eighteen months its been awful. i get constant muscle twitches, aches and eye pain and after looking up my symptoms on the internet, am convinced i have MS.
My boyfriend thinks i am insane but i just cannot get it out of my head.
Can twitching be connected to worrying?

Also, last month i thought i had HIV. Every symptom I get always develops into the worst case scenario. The HIV thing began because i developed a bad cold and read on the net this can be one of the early signs!
I know its totally ridiculous but i dont know how to overcome my severe health anxiety problems.

I am not on any medication and I wondered if anyone is going through a similar thing?!
