View Full Version : I think I am a hypochondriac

Going to a walk-in centre this evening as have a painful swelling around my groin.

I have used the internet to diagnose that I have an infected lymph node, with a myriad of causes, which is a very heavy list.

I am hoping it will be a quick case of anti-biotics and all will be good, but, I have that nagging feeling that it could be a lot worse.

I hate the internet at times!

Lie on your back. Does the swelling disappear? Put your hand where the swelling is. Cough. Do you feel a movement? If so, you may have an inguinal hernia.

That's what I just had surgery for. When I first noticed the lump, I thought it was a lymph node infection as well.

If you think you're a hypochondriac, you may be getting delusional too.

That probably means the cancer has already spread to your brain.

Ask EO for advice. He'll know all about whatever it is you've got.

The last time I was playing 'Doctors and Nurses' with Mrs EO, she discovered that I had a swelling in the groin, and she rubbed some ointment on it. Then she bounced up and down on it for half an hour, and it went away

Isn't self-diagnosis as a hypochondriac a sign of being a hypochondriac?

Thanks - tried that last night, after looking that one up.

All red and swollen, suggesting infection. Hope it is as quick and easy as that, but should find out tonight!

Really wanting to leave work and get it checked over, but my nearest centre is 40 miles away. They are a good idea, just not in the right places!

Dont you think Valentines day should be preserved for roses, chocolates, romance, the sound of love.

You can always tell the laydeez of CUK about the festering infected pustules that ooze pus in your groinal area on one of the other 364 days of the year

If it doesn't turn black it could be mumps.

Still alive - not cancerous, and nothing that anti-biotics will not cure.

Feeling a lot happier, but could have done without having to spend 2 hours in the Manchester walk-in centre.

Been told to ease off the gym though!

Have you informed all the gents and ladies you've been close to over the last few weeks? They might like to get themselves checked.

Have you informed the mad woman you've been close to over the last few weeks? She might like to come round and boil your bunnies.FTFY

Recent research suggest that hypochondria usually has an underlying physical cause like cancer or AIDS.

Thanks for the cheerful comment Mitch!

It was an infected hair follicle, so very relieved nothing overly serious!

As I have infection pumping through me, this explains why I nearly wiped out after BodyAttack on Sunday. Got double spin and double abs tonight, but think I will tone i down a little to the one class and enjoy an nice lunch to recouperate :)
