Dear Anna Thank you so much for your reply with your wise advice and kind words. I agree and can identify with everything you have said.I have already had cognitive behaviour therapy which worked until I had a new symptom. All of my anxiety calms down after GP visits, tests and reasssurance. Then I get a new symptom and it flares up again and I am back to square one. Where this cancer fear came from baffles me. I did work as a nurse on a cancer ward when I was 18 yrs old but that was such a long time ago. Then I had Methotrexate for my ectopic pregnancy and was told this drug is sometimes used for cancer patients.Then the GP said I could have Hodgekins. I suppose it could have come with any of those. As income is a bit low I saved money to see a Hypnotherapist but unfortunately that didnt work either. I was on anti depressants for a while last year but they left my mind "foggier" than usual. As I have 3 children, 1 just 3 yrs I did not want to take any risks. GERD and LPR does run in my family so it wouldnt surprise me if that is what the lump feeling is.In answer to your questions though, yes I am a smoker and I do drink 1-2 glasses of wine a day. I know I shouldnt but it helps calm my anxiousness.My diet is pretty good and I do not eat too much junk food. I grow my own herbs and make teas with these. I also cook a lot and make wholesome foods.I am taking a multi vitamin already and milk thistle to keep my liver healthy! What benefits would the magnesium give me and can I take it with the multi vitamins. This is a wonderful site and I am so glad I found it. Thank you for offering to help me through this forum. The replies to this post have helped me already and I am really grateful. Gentle hugs Scarlett.
