God I have a good day then go spoil it!

Posted , 7 users are following.

So today had been a good day. But then I come home - get in bath and start googling!!

Had a pain under my ribs for last few days and tummy pains. The odd back ache too and my toilet habits and either one way or another. Bloated and sometimes dizzy. Now I think I've got pancreatic cancer! And tummy makes really loud noises too

    DONT GOOGLE!!!! It always gives the worst bloody illness or disease, and then your anxiety goes ten fold, I've done it, it could just be gas, or acid, try some over the counter stuff first to try and relieve it, or see your gp if your worried.

    I'm probably not the best person to comment, but just want to assure you that your not alone.

    I too panic like crazy about everything.

    I currently have 1 of the best doctors in my opinion and I told him that I always Google my symptoms, to which he replied (don't ever do that) it's the worst thing you can do.

    What I do is, anytime I reach for my phone to Google something I stop myself and play a game or read something happy.

    Stay well away from Google, it will destroy your life.

    But I do know how you feel, I too currently think I have bowel cancer and this was because of Google and because of my anxiety it's has gone out of control.

    Try and relax and if you get that bad, go and see your doctor.

    Are you taking any medication?

      Yes when my anxiety is off I do, I have pain any where and everywhere, but under my ribs I do because I find it gives me IBS induced by the anxiety, causing acid, trapped wind and gas, and also changed toilet habits try not to worry, that only makes it worse, if its acid try drinking some milk, or settlers, try to relax as well, I know its hard but the more you do the more it will subside ☺

      You don't have to, it manifests in lots of ways, and takes a while to ease, to keep an eye on yourself and try a few things to ease it if you are concerned though go to your gp, DONT Google it !!! ☺

    pancreatic cancer is silent it doesn't bubble and sadly by the time it's diagnosed you would be v aware and would be under an oncologist

    try some anti indigestion remedies

    Hi Kirsty which side under ribs is pain? Reason I ask is because I have pain in upper right hand side. I'm putting it down to digestion being in a mess due to anxiety. Bowels same as yours too. Anxiety has a lot to answer for! Hope you feel better soon. E.
