A disclaimer here...I'm not accusing ANYONE of being a hypochondriac, so please don't take it that way. However, given the recent posts and folks ignoring what the docs say, I think this is appropriate. I too, am still recovering from what I feel is anxiety-fueled BFS, if there is such an animal. However, peace only comes when you start to accept certain realities. I won't list them again, as I think uber, Kent1915, and Aaron and others have listed them countless times before.

This article talks about the web and it's detrimental affect on people worrying about illness.

Remember, LISTEN to the medical professionals and your own voice of reason.

Be steady.

Hi

I totally agree. I twitched with panic attacks 12 years ago and my PCP didn't even pay attention to it. I took Prozac and Xanax and it went away along with my obssession. This year when I twitched again with panic attacks I went straight to the net and dx myself with ALS and have been obssessed ever since. I think if I had stayed away from the ALS sites this past January I would have taken another anti dep and probably would be fine by now because I even have copies of my medical records from 12 years ago that show I twitched then too. Why can't I accept that and move on? Because of the net. It's my fault but it is because of the net.
