For about 8 months I've been having stomach issues.
It started with bad pains in the right side of my abdomen and spread to all over, my doctor was convinced it was indigestion and gas pain, but I'm. It so sure. I was tested for h pylori which was negative, 6 months ago I had several abdominal ultrasounds aswell and blood tests are clear for infections.
I'm on a waiting list for an endoscopy but it's a 12 month waiting list and the fear of waiting when it could be something dire terrifies me.
Although the pain has lessened a lot since last year I still have quite an upset stomach and have now developed an odd taste in my mouth that gives me more anxiety.
My symptoms are-
Loose stools occasionally
Weird taste in my mouth
I'm going back to the doctors to see if we can speed anything up and am thinking about purchasing a bowel screening kit, I'm not sure how accurate threat are though. I'm only 23 and I feel so stressed and exhausted about this, I'm so convinced I have something terrible like cancer, but I just can't eat any answers
