About three weeks ago I started with dizziness and heartburn which was very slight, then came the abdominal pain which lasted a couple of seconds. This then went into a dull ache, immediately I was worried it was my appendix and saw my GP who ruled it was a virus even though had some tenderness (locum that I saw). This carried on with all the above symptons which indeed started to go into my back, going to the toilet was a period of constipation and feeling that I still needed to go afterwards. At times I felt like I was straining because I was willing for this horrible feeling and pain to go away....I know not helping.
I have been worrying myself stupid because I suffer health anxiety as well so not god at all. I went back to see my own GP this week and she has definitely ruled my appendix out, and she has confirmed that she thinks it's my bowels and given me Mebeverine but I have health anxiety and worry about taking tablets and side effects....I know I am not helping myself.
My GP has arranged for me to go for a scan to make sure it's not a cyst on my ovary, can anyone give me there experiences and have they suffered anything like this? I know everyone's different but sometimes reassurance is all we need. Also has anyone took primo tic drinks and did they help? Thanks
