I recently came down with a bacterial infections that led to pneumonia. The first day of antibiotics, I got so much worse. I developed the pneumonia after taking the antibiotics, so I couldn't breath, I had a high fever, had a super sore throat and couldn't eat. Understandably, I was worried that the antibiotics were affecting me poorly and googled my symptoms. According to the internet, I had tuberculous. I know you shouldn't beleve everything you read on the internet and in hindsight, I know it was pretty stupid of me to worry, but I had a high fever and was not thinking straight. I went to the doctor, but I didn't freak out, just explained my symptoms. Long story short, the antibiotics increased my immune reaction, but I am feeling better now. I also do not have tuberculous, thankfully. Not really that bad of a health scare, but this happened literally this week and was quite scary for me at the time.

I'm full of health scares. I was told I have Microscopic Colitis which isn't a big deal but four years and two doctors later I still haven't recovered, now they're talking about colectomy surgery and I'm starting to freak out. I never thought I'd be scared of something like that.

I've had minor scares turn into big problems, I've had minor scares turn out to be nothing. I don't trust my own judgment when it comes to that stuff anymore.

When I was 13ish, I had to be hospitalized because I was sick. I was so sick for over 2 weeks. I couldn't eat. I couldn't drink water. As soon as something would touch my tongue, I would get sick. All the test were showing nothing was wrong with me. My Dr's were convinced I was pregnant, but I can assure you that I was very much a virgin. I was freaking out and thought I was going to die. After not being able to take medications for so long the Dr's gave me a pill up my ass. I don't know what they gave me or what it was they treated me for, but it worked.

Yep, some months ago I was told I have a renal cyst on one of my kidneys. I wasn't super worried but just wanted it taken care of because I was feeling terrible 24/7 and not sleeping well at all. Luckily it was one of those cysts that just goes away on its own because the CT scan showed nothing at all when they looked at it.

I had a nodule in my chest after an x-ray and had to go in for an MRI. Totally convinced myself it was cancer. It was nothing, though.

I also have had auras to migraines where I forget words. I couldn't form proper sentences, or anything. I just went around the house pointing at stuff so my mom could tell me what they were called. Now I just lose sight in my right eye. Auras were scary at first because I didn't know what was happening and if it would go away or not.

Yes, but then there are the times that I was much sicker than I thought and didn't worry about it like I should have.

I've had horrible back pain that could have been any number of things but the doctors never could figure out what was wrong with me.

I had to chose "other" because I handled it really poorly...but I expected that would be the case!

I had a crazy mole that had to be biopsied, luckily it came back abnormal but non-cancerous.

Still though, I wear my SPF and hats all the time now! Lesson learned.

Being a nurse I have the opposite reaction thinking oh it's not that bad and I don't go in or my family doesn't go in and then you find out that your really sick or shit, the arm is broken!!

Yup...I was having trouble breathing, had a bit of pain in my chest area, and I was really panicky.
I was convinced beyond all reason that I was having a heart attack or something, so I went to the hospital; turns out it was just a really bad panic attack.

But on the plus side, I learned how to deal with my panic attacks better after that. I think it was the meds I was on that made them more frequent though.

Oh yeah, that's definitely happened to me. I'm the type of person that stresses a lot, over EVERYTHING! I was definitely freaking out til I found out everything was okay!

After getting my tubes tied, I discovered a hard lump to the right of my navel that could not be accounted for. My first thought was that they left something inside of me from the surgery. My mother, being an RN, started rattling off what it could be, and I didn't start to freak until she said "It could be a hernia ... "

"WHAT? You mean my guts are hanging through my muscle walls???"

After about six weeks of phone tag with the doctors and an MRI (oh, and the techs could not stick a needle in my veins if my life depended on it), it was finally discovered to be an encapsulated infection that was in the process of dissipating by that point.

My body had been fighting an infection all that time, but I didn't display any signs of an infection.

(These were also the same morons who told me I had only one incision, but I found two incisions like my type of tubal was supposed to have. They also didn't bother to give any aftercare instructions. Thank God my mother is an RN and had taken care of post-sterilization patients.)

I got a bad spider bite and was worried it was from a poisonous spider. I went to the doctor because it was very swollen and they weren't too concerned. I wasn't either, I just wanted to make sure I was okay. Better safe than sorry.
