I've suffered with health anxiety for years always worried I have something wrong with me & with numerous visits to the doctors/a&e I've always been fine until last week.......
For about 7 weeks I have been having upper stomach pains I went to my gp who advised it was ibs, pain continued went back doctors who advised gastritis. Anyone one day the pain was unbarable so I went a&e & I was admitted to hospital.
They did lots of tests & my bloods came back that I had high levels of amylase so they said it's pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) I went for an ultrasound which came back fine so they sent me for MCRP (MRI) to see if I had any gallstones. The doctor advised no gallstones & that after 4 days in hospital I could go home.
Just before I went home a doctor came to see me who advised that they have found something on my pancreas which it can be one of two things either an inflammation or cancer! He said that because I'm only 29 the chances are slim! He advised that the specialists are going to have a meeting & discuss my case. As you can imagine I'm sick with worry feel weak & cant not stop crying. Since being out of hospital the pain in my tummy has gone however I now have pain in my back & terrible diarreah which are both symptoms! I'm convinced I have it & I don't know if that's because I actually do have it or it's because of my anxiety.
