Hello, i'm 17 years old and i've been suffering some stomach or abdominal pains for the past week, I've had this before but it has gone away and came back, I've also had some blood in my stool sometimes for months now, i was putting it off as just bleeding from my rectum due to hard stools, but today i've noticed that there is some blood in the stool it self, I'm scared my abdominal is in mild pain which can be overlooked and forgotten if i get distracted enough, I feel bloated and sometimes sick but i never throw up. I've got a history of acid reflux problems and a lot of anxiety problems, as I was conviced I had heart problems for years due to chest pains etc.. I'm getting an appointment to see a doctor this week, but i'm just so scared that I'm looking for some reassurance or i'm going to go crazy.
