up into the forum again...
this is bound to get fairly tmi, but i will mention that i will be going to the doctor soon.
also as an added fact, my grandmother currently is suffering from colon cancer--a high stage of it, so i'm /terribly/ afraid of it alongside already being health concious. i'm 16 as well, so i know it's rare, but not impossible.
of course when i get so health anxious, i google--and of course the first thing i google happened to be colon cancer. i share quite a few symptoms which...isn't easing any worry. though i thought i was due for "that time" of the month due to being dfab, but it hasn't happened yet despite symptoms.
the rare time i manage to "go" to the bathroom, which hasn't been often considering i've been horribly constipated for 6-7 days straight, the little i do go went from regular to pale beige/very very light brown in color. i suffer from abdominal cramps ALL over, leg cramps, and most recently a back pain that went from my lower back to my middle to in between my shoulder blades, and it hurts to take in a deep breath.
i occasionally go through chills + hot flashes as well, and parts of my face can sometimes feel warm before fading off. i've struggled with a tight throat to the point i can barely swallow liquids, and i went from eating everything to barely eating anything at all--sometimes it shifts but it's mainly the latter.
i've had mood swings, sure, and high anxiety/stress on a CONSTANT basis, my stomach has also been incredibly noisy, and i occasionally get a strange water/liquidy feeling in my upper stomach--occasionally my skin from my chest to my lower abdomen is warm to the touch, but mainly this stays around my upper stomach + belly button.
after finding a sore i mentioned in another post, my worries have only gotten worse--and now with this difficulty taking deep breaths, i'm struggling more. i know muscle tension exists, and a tight throat to where i can barely eat without nausea, barely swallow water or air, palpitations, etc, i'm always assuming the worst. occasionally i get a sharp pain on one side of my throat that goes up to my ear.
occasionally i do get sharp chest pains as well, on both sides of my ribs, the middle of my chest, and near my collarbone.
i have had tests taken MONTHS ago, and the only thing wrong they found blood test wise was i had a very low vitamin d and b12, and everything else was anxiety/stress related. but because it was months ago and things onset fast, i can't get myself to believe everything is fine.
but as stated in the title, my main concern is colon/bowel cancer since i share quite an amount of symptoms. i'm so scared of dying, please help??
my wellness check isn't til next month...so i can't get it any sooner.
