ive been battling the agoraphobia since summer 2017 and then add on hypochondria  in spring of 2018   im still battling everyday with these thoughts of what can go wrong but the thoughts are scary but when i get physical pain with the thoughts is when i lose my shit n get pretty bad because i always assume the worst and think i will have to go the the hospital  tonight has been pretty ruff on me !!!   can anyone offer advice or similar stories

I am the exact same way.

I have always had health problems. I have epilepsy and I have had kidney stones, like you. I am getting off the epilepsy medication because I have been on it for far too long. I am also tapering from xanax. So tapering from two medications has been rough.

But also like you I have horrible hypochondria. This month has been especially bad. My anxiety has been ramped thru the roof. I have gone to a lot of doctors for things that I thought I was going to die from, so i understand what you are going thru.

I have a while to go on tapering as well. So imagine I'll go thru this for some time.

Lets just hope all this gets better in the future for the both of us. Good luck.

SORRY Jumpman, but I don't understand your signature. And English isn't my native language, so I may have misunderstood. Have you stopped with Benzo, or do you lower the dose?

I had the same problem as you, before I ended up with Benzo. Terrible anxiety, agoraphobia and insomnia. Now I understand, that it was side effects and tolerance. It is completely incomprehensible, that this little tablet can cause so much problem. But, the body is screaming for more Benzo, and we feel so bad.

Sorry, if I have misunderstood. And I'm so sorry, that you feel so bad. Hug! :)
