i posted something earlier similar to this in a different forum
lately, at least for the past couple of weeks--my stomach and abdominal has been annoyingly crampy, noisy/gurgling, etc. i've suffered from constipation even back from when i was 3 or 4 years old (im 16 now), and it's been persistent and an ongoing struggle. i was diagnosed with acid reflux around 5 or 6, but that comes and goes.
the past year or so i've been under IMMENSE anxiety + stress caused by homelife + personal issues, and cannot get out of it. my symptoms can be as mild as a muscle cramp to neck/chest tightness, chest fullness, STABBING chest pains, to almost fainting! and of course, constipation.
a bit tmi here, but uh, if i manage to go at ALL during the week without laxatives on a regular basis (which i know i shouldnt do...but im so desperate...) i have to strain a LOT and i've ended up with chest pains from that as well, and i can be in the bathroom for up to 1hr & 30 mins at a time give or take.
just the other night i felt a lump near my bum, and, well, further inspection shows the lump is about the size of my fingertip and the redness around it is quite big for the size of the lump. it seems theres a smaller lump near it too but im not sure.
answers from the other forum say it might be a hemmorhoid, but as i haven't gone to the bathroom i can't confirm any blood or anything either. it's definitely sore to sit on, but google searches say hemmorhoids are like blue or purple..? not this reddish-pinkish color.
i've been to the doctor's office for multiple reasons this year, everything from aches to cardiac to cancer, and all is clear in that respect, and they narrow it down to anxiety. just the other night there was a huge blowup i was involved in, and with father's day coming up i'm more prone to breakdowns than usual, even if i go into crying spells on a daily basis.
i also am aware i do not lead a healthy diet, and my anxiety puts me through spells of eating excessively to not eating at all, and i'm also BARELY active, which i know i need to fix.
is it possible this severe amount of stress + anxiety could cause/lead to these issues? how do i fix this? i can't risk going to the doctor again without getting yelled at for it, so please, if there's something i can do at home, please tell me.
