I have health anxiety. My fear is food allergy and tongue swelling because of the food i eat. I have no food allergy, or other allergies. Phobia?

Still? Again?: Did you talk to your counselor yet? Fears are primarily irrational concerns about things that may or may not happen. It is impossible to predict if you will ever have an allergy or an injury or a syndrome that may validate your fears. I would seek a consultation with a therapist to help you understand and control the irrational thoughts. Worrying about it will not change any outcome. ...Read more
