The only advise one can give is not to be your own doctor. You got the views on a professional doctor. You should learn to trust those views. It is only when we start to read up on things that we make matters worse. Ask any member of this forum that. They read up on medication and get scared of the side effects. People want to know far too much. Inward thinking. Trust what your doctor told you and just be happy it is not anything worse. Or even look around at others who are far worse off than us. Thank god we have only got some anxiety to deal with. That's what I do whenever I am feeling sorry myself. Doctors get their jobs for a reason. People wouldn't go near them if they didn't trust them. So a little bit of trust and a lot less reading up on things.
