Hi guys. I’m freaking myself out about my symptoms and wondered if anyone can help me out.
For the past 3 months I have had a pain (burning) under my right rib that sometimes spreads down my side. No other symptoms apart from that. My doctor has done a liver function test aswell as a full blood count which all came back normal. I got sent for an ultrasound also which came back normal. She has put me on omeprazole to see if it calms any inflammation but Iv been on it nearly two weeks and it’s made no difference.
For the past 4/5 days though I have been suffering with lower back pain, and I now seem to of developed a pain on my left side. It came on initially as I reached for something up high, but the pain went away and has only come on strongly after 2/3 days. I also seem to have an intermittent sore throat (which is red on inspection) and blocked nose.
My doctor has referred me to a GI about my right side pain but dismissed everything else as a muscle strain and a common cold.
My anxiety is through the roof at the moment and I’m feeling pretty fatigued aswell but I’m not sure if that’s due to poor sleep.
Could any of these symptoms be related or is my doctor correct in what she says and I just need to calm myself down a bit?
