Lost both my parents to different cancers so I'm a little bit of a hypochondriac but up until this spring have not been to worried about anything.
I turned 30 this past winter, and am looking to start a family and then bam...
Had a stomach pain that persisted when to the doctors, told I was fine, maybe gastritis, didn't go away went to an urgent car center, blood work was great, stomach exam came back negative sent home with peice of mind.
Next day had a difficult BM, a little blood go back to the ER as I was panicking, they did a rectal exam and a chest ray and ekg and blood work. All negative, I was told probably a virus and a hemmorid. Sent home. Stomach pain goes away but I get a cough, chest is heavy I become insomniatic, I get tension in my back and arms and shoulders. I end up having a panic attack and go to the ER for a heart attack, affair all results clear. Blood, X-ray,ekg, and a d dimmer test. I go see my GP and tell him my story he send me for blood work again, and sets up a CT scan of my abdominal and a colonoscopy for this spring summer. But says he thinks I'm fine and I'm just letting my health anxiety blow up my symptoms.
Cough gets worse, go to an urgent care center, told I have bronchitis and get antibiotics. Half way through 10 days now, coughis gone, chest is improving and arm tension is slowly going away.
But my back is sore at night(tho I recently started chiro).
Now I'm worried I have lung cancer or spinal cancer or whatever.
Do I book another visit with my gp and express my concerns for a chest ct scan on top ofnmy abdominal one? Would 3 different doctors all miss cancer onb3 different x rays
Just really fearful and want to overcome thi
