    I have felt the same way many times. I take effexor xr now, just started t and klonopin 2x daily. the only way I truly calm down is seeng a dr for reassurance. Tje latest episode had me convincI had cancer somehwere. I have pelvic pain 24/7, have had u/s vagnal u/s,bloodwork,mammogram, full skin check, full phusical, feeling belly and areas for a mass or anythg. Everything was perfect. I find comfort in the dr explainiing which blood test would be off and appreciate the ee time she takes with me. While they ar suspecting scar tisues from 3 sections and another female condition, i stll wrry over it being something dreadful. I can tell you that the stomach is first organs to e effected by stress. I get pains all over my stomach area, my side and back when am stressed.. Also, Ovarian cancer is rare. As for bladder did you read up on IC condition. That effect the belly and the bladder. Its not a big deal in most cases. many tmes controlled by diet. If yor a female, it may be woth reading on. Its a newer diagnosed condition, but very treatable.l

      Hello Hun, can I join in ? I'm the same, always thinking somethings wrong with me, I am in surgical menopause but it's not just that, I was like it before but not this bad - every headache I think is a brain you know what I can't even say it, always poking my stomach area looking and feeling for lumps, worrying about bowels and bladder always, started taking vitamin b6 as meant to help but turned pee bright illuminated and thought I had massive infection so stoped taking them, don't sleep much always stressing about symptoms, my hubby just gets annoyed with me always checking and looking for reassurance, I get tired out with myself - health anxiety stoos me going to GP as they will want to do tests that will freak me out, it's a bloody vicious circle, feel for you xx

    Hi 

    what I find so frustrating is Ithat I truly in my heart believe that the doctor just hasn't found what's wrong with me yet and when they do it will be too late I've no life left just want to go to sleep and not wake up     I take the reassurance from the doctor feel good and within 6 or so hours back to square one life sucks 

    and I bet you all feel the same so what do we do there must be something we can can do collectively
