The question of ‘is it a symptom of anxiety or not’ has been circulating around the health anxiety world recently and today I give my take on the best approach. Enjoy the episode my friends…
For years I asked myself and others the question of ‘is it a symptom of anxiety or something physically serious?’ The driving force behind our anxiety many times is a repeated question. In this case the question does come with an evidence based answer after we get checked out by a physician. However, if we don’t believe the negative diagnosis we could be headed down a health anxiety path that could linger for years.
A logical and rational answer to the question of is it a symptom of anxiety rarely helps a health anxiety sufferer.
Facts simply don’t work very well, the question is why?
Does the question of ‘is it a symptom of anxiety’ spur on a feeling that has been far too invested in to escape from? I believe it’s possible since the addiction to suffering is a very real phenomenon. A better question is ‘how can we get a person to trust in a new idea?’ This new idea connected to trust will take them towards healing the roots of the anxiety and that is the direction we must go together.
Our life experience is dependent on the types of questions we ask ourselves. This is why it’s vitally important to move from the question of ‘is it a symptom of anxiety’ to something like ‘what spurred on this feeling’ once a diagnosis has in fact been made.
