Anxiety and addiction of using Oximeter
I was diagnosed with Covid in April and was home quarantined with mild symptoms. But after recovery I have been mentally disturbed because I have read terrible news. Then I was diagnosed with Deviated Septum and felt short of breath sometimes. I got operated and I am still recovering 2 months after the surgery! Mild crusting is still there that's why sometimes I feel blockage. But the bigger problem is that I keep checking my oxygen level every now and then and panic if it's showing 96-97 instead of 98 sometimes. I can't sleep without checking my reading, I can't eat without it and I can't do anything without it. My septoplasty is improving but I still get scared and keep checking oximeter. Sometimes it shows 97 for more time instead of 98 and I panic. Is that a problem? Am I diagnosed with major anxiety? Can someone help me? I feel I have developed problems like acidity also because of it. I need help. 😭
