I know you want answers, but googling your symptoms is a not the thing to be doing when you're as anxious as you are. Talking to your doctor is your best bet.

Stress causes all kinds of weird feelings that mimmick symptoms of serious illnesses.

Yeah it's hard not to when you want an answer right away/don't trust your GP. I still do it (in fact I did that recently because I wanted reassurance about the endoscopy) but you really shouldn't because you'll get all kinds of negative stuff and with that kind of mentality that is what you will focus on.

Yes, it did. I had a dental implant that went bad - resulting in much pain and infection in my jawbone; numerous surgeries and nerve damage.

I cannot tell you how stressed out I was; in addition to the pain and worry was the fact that not one medical provider would tell me the truth; I had to see several different providers to get an answer for the continuing pain.

I was told I had a hundred different problems until an out of state OS finally shared the truth with me.

It does get obsessive when you know there is something wrong and you ahve a feel that others know and just won't tell you. PLUS - spend considerable amount of time trying to make you think it's all in your head. I spent a LOT of time googling symptoms (not necessarily useful) but once I knew what it was and how to make it better, I got better.

Time did help - along with specific medications to help with nerve damage and anxiety.

It's been 10 years and I still remember it - and hope nothing like that ever happens again but I don't think about it much these days.

Best of luck, consider medication if you need it.
