Health Anxiety Dida-ism: Use the logic challenge- 1. Breathe. Take a moment to really evaluate and decide what physical symptoms are really happening; 2. Look up the official risk factors for whatever you seem to be exhibiting. Physically write them down; 3. Beside that list write down only the ones that 100% apply to you; 4. If you don't have many significant risk factors, keep repeating to yourself that it's just the anxiety. It can sometimes help to write it several times, too. **This is taking into consideration any medical conditions you have. Please make sure you are telling your doctor about these episodes so they can determine if there is an underlying physical condition. Use this technique after you have been cleared by a physician whenever it happens again.
