I'm just looking for some advice and reassurance. I suffer from anxiety and have for a fair few years now. Lately when it comes to my health it tends to take over and make me panic. The latest thing I'm obsessing over is having appendicitis. About 3 months ago I started feeling pain in my groin area (where your leg joins your body) on my right side. I went to my doctor about it and he put it down to a pulled muscle. The pain stuck around for a little but went away. Then about a month later it came back again in the same place. I went to my doctor again and he said it can take up to 8 weeks for the muscle to repair itself and if it was still hurting after that come back and he would investigate it further. It's now at the 3 month mark and the pain is still there. It has moved though. I am getting a dull coming and going pain in my right hip and groin area now. It's constantly moving. Also when I wake up in the morning along the bottom of my back kills me but that does leave within half an hour. My anxiety has me so worked up that its my appendix that I feel like I'm feeling weird sensations along my right side stomach near my hip and just under my last rib. The same sensation is also happening along the bottom of my abdomen as I say "under my fat roll" There is defiantly pain there but I'm not sure if something is actually wrong or its my anxiety blowing things up in my mind. I had an x-ray on my right hip today and I'm finding out the results from my doctor tomorrow. I'm also having an ultrasound of my hip but I can't get an appointment for that for 2 weeks. I might add about 2-3 weeks before all this pain started I fell over onto concrete and landed front forward pretty hard. Im not sure if that could have affected anything. No vomiting, fever, lack of eating, none of that.
Any advice or reassurance would be great because I am quietly going crazy inside my own head.
