I lost my mum in October last year and I’m early 40s. I thought I was coping but have had a few weeks off work and feel I’m getting worse. I keep dreaming about her (woke up this morning in tears after a dream about her). I cry and have physical symptoms and have seen the GP so many times since November as feel I have got a serious illness (my mum was super healthy and so am I usually so it can happen to anyone which scares me). The last few days I have had backaches, palpitations, arm pains, lethargy and a bit of dizziness today. Prior to this I have had pelvic pains, a cough etc. I have spoken to the GP twice this week and they say I’m fine and just have some muscle pain as I worried it was liver or kidney probs.
I just want to know I’m healthy and will be ok. Everything else in my life is great but I feel terrible and worried I’m really ill… I am awaiting CBT.
