the burning around my vagina has gone down today though & it doesn't really sting too much when I pee. They are really tiny I will try and get a better pic

yes i am suffering with really bad anxiety but if all the symptoms weren't there i wouldn't be thinking about it.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
I think it is a vicious cycle.anxiety triggers you to put stuff on it, inspect it and so forth, then this worsens symptoms and the cycle repeats

I am waiting for an appointment for my anxiety with a specialist on the 18th of Feb. My GP agrees that anxiety is playing a huge part in all of this. All I want is the symptoms to go away so I don't have to think about it and not feel anxious about it.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
I agree with your GP. Treat the anxiety and everything gets better
