I've had symptoms for 3 years now. It started off with a vague pain on the right side of my abdomen, at belly button level, this is still there but much more prominent now, i then developed loose stools/diarrhoea, which i still have. i now have widespread pain throughout my body.
Nothing has ever been found, except liver cysts, that ive been told many times are completely normal and woukd not cause my symptoms.
Doctors have suggested IBS, functional pain, somatoform disorder, physcosomatic pain brought on by anxiety/stress. Basically, that all my symptoms are physcoclogical and not physical.
I have been convinced all along that something has been missed and that i am physically ill, specifically cancer. I have convinced myself i have cancerhat has been missed despite all these tests and that i am still alive 3 years later. Just writing that down sounds crazy, but it is what i have thought. Colon cancer initially, then stomach cancer, pancreatic and liver cancer.
Could all my symptoms be brought on by my mind/anxiety? Have i brought this on myself?
Or has something been missed?
