I'm 30 years old, female, not overweight, I have Hypothyroidism, but it is within normal range, I don't drink or smoke, but I suffer with severe health anxiety and panic disorder. I've suffered with a tight full chest and throat feeling for the last 4 or 5 months. The last month, I've having to belch to feel relief, usually after eating, and many have said acid reflux and indigestion. I've been doctor several times over last few weeks, and I had my chest examined with a stethoscope several times, I had my regular blood tests for my Hypothyroid and a 24 hour blood pressure monitor. My doctor said it was my anxiety.
But I put in my symptoms and the first link that popped up was this:
And some of my symptoms were on there, and I've been crying the past hour because I'm terrified and absolutely frightened I have this cancer now. I'm panicking hysterically and I can't think straight. I don't have a problem swallowing, I do get tired sometimes, but I'm at home all day everyday and don't get much exercise but now I'm thinking it is another symptom. I got the hiccups the other night, but not had hiccups in a long time, but now I'm thinking it was linked to this cancer as well. I'm really really scared.
Then, when I lean back, the feeling in my chest is more prominent, and only when I lean forward and belch does it ease it. Now I'm thinking the back pain is another symptom of the cancer. Please, I'm so scared, I don't know what to do.
