I purchased a book called "It's not all in your head, how worrying about your helath could be making you sick-and what you can do about it". For anyone with health anxiety, I strongly recommend this book. I had health anxiety before my twitching started and I am really starting to believe it's all related. This books tells stories of people who have crazy symptoms and convince themselves they had deadly diseases. There are some stories about people thinking they have ALS also. It then talks about "body noise" and how sometimes your body just does strange things but it doesn't mean it's a deadly disease. There are quiz's and it uses Cognitive behavorial techniques to help. I know not everyone has health anxiety on here but I know alot of us do so I just wanted to share my experience with this book. I found it to be very helpful.
