Please help! I have had sore stomachs or nausea every day for the past nearly 3 weeks. I have always had numerous stomach problems because of my anxiety and emetophobia (fear of throwing up) but it's never been as bad as this. It's all kinds of different pain- nausea/feeling unwell, sore lower stomach, indigestion type feeling, etc. I never actually throw up or feel like I'm going to throw up though. It usually lasts about an hour, give or take. Sometimes it's made worse by eating food, sometimes better. I also have really bad constipation- sometimes all that will come out is tiny, hard bms, or sometimes just a mucous-like substance. Occasionally I will have a more normal (though still clumpy and hard) bowel movement, though very rarely diahrrea. There has been a few times where there has been blood after I wipe, or a drop of blood in the toilet after a bm, though I do not know if this is from a cut or something else. I also sometimes get very bad gas or burping. Please help! Is this irritable bowel syndrome? Anxiety? I'm very scared it's something like stomach cancer! I have had a blood tests about 6 months ago, though it came back clear, and I am not allowed to go to the doctor because my parents don't want to make it a habit to ease my emetophobia whenever I feel slightly off, but I am generally concerned about this! I just want to feel better for once!!! Thanks for any help xx
