    Hi all,

    I have a somatic disorder pertaining to health anxieties and fear of illness. They really spiral out of control.

    I've been told that I have CFS and I want to go to a specialist, but I'm afraid he'll tell me it's not that, but something that could be fatal. The anticipatory anxiety keeps me from going.

    I do see a psych for meds and a therapist, but I don't seem to be getting better. I'm OK mentally, until I have physical symptoms.

    Can anyone relate to this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
