Health Anxiety: can be very unsettling but it is also very treatable. Please see a mental health professional after medical conditions are ruled out by your doc. Self-disclosure is a part of any relationship so share your concerns w/your potential partner. Cognitive therapy and clinical hypnosis can be very effective. See www.asch.net for some referrals or leads for clinical hypnosis. Peace and good health.
