Okay so, abdominal stuff isn't new to me. I have had IBS symptoms since late July of last year, so in general I'm pretty used to aches and pains in the tummy area. But recently I've noticed a new sensation that comes and goes day by day. I can only describe it as the feeling of wearing a scratchy wool sweater with no undershirt, except beneath the skin. My anxiety is telling me it's something horrible and I'm going to die of septic shock, but my logical mind is trying to figure out what's going on before panicking. However I can't seem to find any other cases of this kind of discomfort, probably because I don't know how to properly word the feelings I'm having. (Side note, I know that infections almost always cause a fever but I don't know if I have one or not, as my thermometer is broken and I do have a way of projecting symptoms onto myself. But I do have a warm feeling in my sinuses.)
Does anyone know what this could possibly be? It's really unhealthy to constantly be worrying about it, and it's not like I can just walk in to see my doctor today.
