Health phobia: You MAY have a health phobia, an irrational fear of something that is possible but not probably, especially if you have bee examined by your doctor. Please see your doc to make sure all is well medically and then a mental health pro such as a clinical psychologist to learn ways to manage this situation and anxiety in general. You can do it. Peace and good health.
