Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
with most cancers you would not have physical symptoms until they were relatively advanced
skin cancer being an exception
I'm glad you recognize this as being a panic attack
and I'm glad you are getting help
but perhaps the best thing you could do for yourself would be to quit smoking
so you could stop worrying about that
are you there sir?
I do not see you in the chat
I'm going to switch to Q and A
but I can clearly see your psychological problem in your question
you recognize you have a problem with health anxiety
you are 26
and you smoke
and are worried about cancer
you are likely spending lots of money on doctor's visits and each time you are told you don't have cancer you don't believe it
I'm willing to be a lot of money that you don't have cancer
but i don't think that will calm you down because you are getting something from this
you are gaining something from this
hello i am sorry i am here
if you can figure out what THAT is, then you maybe able to stop your worry
because it is completely irrational
my thinking is irrational
its out of control
one pain, one ache, if im tired, if i get dizzy randomly
but at the same time you can state that it is irrational
which is a good first step
that is true
so how can i help you tonight?
im really not sure i am just afraid of having cancer
so why not decide not to be afraid? being not afraid would be better if you DID have cancer and better if you did not as well.
i guess i have to retrain my brain ... somehow
YES! that's exactly right.
have you seen or read this book HERE
its very difficult
because it is just what you need
i have not maybe i should order it
i dont know, i just feel sick alot
i think maybethat is anxiety
then stop feeling that way
but my brain tells me its not , its one thing after another
you are letting your feelings control your brain when it needs to be the other way around
your brain is wrong and you know it
and it's not your brain or your intellect telling you... it's fear and emotion, and you know that it is wrong, you already told me you know
i say i know it but do i really KNOW it
no, you KNOW it but do not FEEL it to be true
you are in a bad habit
and bad habits take time to break but can be broken,
hence my mentioning the book above
i wonder if i can order that book from that ite
if not it's on Amazon
i will order it , i have trouble concentrating on reading but i think i can do this
but you need to be seeing someone to... a psychologist preferably, a cognitive behavioral therapist
ive heard of a cognitive therapist
are you in therapy?
no im not
im going to see a Medium on august 16th if that counts
here in NJ
that is his name
no it most certainly does not count
they are charlatans
and you are tossing your money away
is it fake
have you ever watched the long island medium, she went to see this guy Jack Keller that I am going to see
maybe he can heal me or something i really have no idea
it is most certainly fake. if you must go READ THIS FIRST
you are all over the place
and online doctors
my girlfreind wants to go to maybe here from her mother from the other side... so im going
if you are serious about overcoming this
yeah i am a lunatic
you need to spend your money on a psychologist
do you have any final questions about this i can answer for you?
i wil see a psychologist
that is a good site of thecold reading
what a fraud
anything as a final question for me?
i appreciate your help and pointing me in a direction of help
as a closing i would say this
Everything could be a sign of something deadly.
You need a good primary care physician and a very good psychologist.
The heartburn is likely due to your anxiety and your smoking. If you drink alcohol this is not helping.
Please let me know if you have more questions.
Positive feedback always appreciated.
