Anyone else over-think?

Anyone else ever get a pain, discomfort, or other health "symptom" and over-think it?

I feel like everytime something goes wrong with me I over-think it drastically (I don't go to the hospital or doctor though) I just keep thinking and thinking and stress myself out more and more...

Like tonight I kept getting this like pressure and pain in between my shoulder blades and the first thing that comes to my mind is a heart attack :\ Why? I don't know, I've never had a heart attack before, but yet it still came to my mind.. And I just way over thought the situation..

  • Are you pretending to be me? I will Google it and convince myself I am dying.

  • I'm an under-responder. I mostly think 'oh, it will probably go away...'

    It helps that I'm generally right :D

  • Yeah a heart attack wouldn't be felt between the shoulder blades and the word you are looking for is HYPOCHONDRIAC.

  • Here's some food for thought.... There aren't many things that refer pain to that area... it's often referred from the lower cervical spine. But... mid-back pain can be indicative of your blood sugar control systems being out of whack as the nerves the pancreas, liver, and adrenal glands travel out from this part of the spine.

  • I am a major over thinker, and not just medical things. I call myself the queen of irrational fears.

  • Happens with me too.. I think a lot even about trivial matters and find it really difficult to control/stop thoughts to enter in my mind. Meditation is a way of controlling thoughts entering in the mind. It helps stay calm. I would recommend it to you.
