Can people please tell me if I am letting anxiety control me or if something is truly wrong? Back in early Oct about the time I was about to ovulate I was woken around 3 am by a nasty wave of nausea and it was followed by stomach burning. I thought it was stomach flu but never vomited. It lasted a few days, got less on day two and day three it was gone. I did not think much about it since I tend to get nauseated when in pms. I bloated like I was 8 months pregnant and had the most air in my belly I've ever had. I Then had an intermittent pain appear in lower right abdomen and became constipated. I freaked and went to go and had them test for ovarian cysts. All came back normal. No cysts or fibroids. Since then I have pain in abdomen never consistently in same place. Twinges in lower right, sometimes upper right under rib, sometimes on my side or top of thigh or hip. I can feel when air is in colon and push to move it. I strain to go #2 as sensation seems to be lost but luckily I have been forcing things out once a day. I also had stool checked for blood and it was negative. Had h.pylori test and that was negative. Doc decided I have gastritis and possibly IbS so he gave me pepcid and citrucil. It helped with the stomach burn and some of the pain (not as bad now) and helped bulk stool a bit (still constipated) but pain is still here and also appears in middle of my back occasionally something fierce. I am so scared I have some cancer and doc isn't looking 😦 I went back to doc but he said give it a month and said I was just being anxious. I am terrified. I am 47 so of course cancer is at top of my mind.
Does this sound like gastritis to any of you?
