Ok, let me start off by saying I have very bad health anxiety. I can go a few months without worrying to a month straight of stress and anxiety.
Last year I was dignosed finally after many doctor visits about abdominal pain and discomfort which I was told was either muscle pain or ulcers. Finally my family doctor sent me for an ultrasound which said it was a mild fatty liver and I just needed to lose weight. I was still worrying about how did they know for sure that is what it was? What if it was cancer? My biggest fear is liver cancer since it's a silent cancer. Also doesn't help that I read about a man who died in his 20's from liver cancer recently.
So I've been fine but I've gained weight instead of lose weight.... which sucks but mostly due to me not being mobile from my constant headaches. Well last month I started getting abdominal pains more and more and especially after reading that article. Now I think my eyes which have been blood shot are signs of liver failure and that my skin isn't as pink as it should be. My urine in the morning was also dark but it could be from waking up and how hot it has been and being dehydrated (I also have a slight bladder prolapse).
So here I am, freaking out about my liver and I am almost in tears and making myself sick. I am a single mom and I often worry about missing out on my daughter's life. I often worry that my doctor had missed something or that the scan was wrong. I should also mention I have had many blood tests a few months ago which didn't show any thing really.... Pleaser reassure me or something
