Health anxiety can: be very unpleasant to live with. Talk w/your doc and see if you both can come up w/a plan as to how often you will visit, e.g., every 6 months. Follow that unless you have major symptoms which he/she can detail for you. See a clinical psychologist to be treated for this not uncommon phobia. Peace and good health.
