I'm an 18 year old male. It started off about 5 days ago with severe stomach bloating/cramps in my abdomen, odd bowel moements, flatulence, things you'd associate with IBS.
But then serious fatigue kicked in, but it's not a mental fatigue, my limbs feel seriously tired all the time, especially my legs, no matter how much sleep I get. I also get jerking in my muscles, usually in my legs or arms, sort of a minor twitch that happens involuntarily and I sometimes get weird bubbling feelings around my legs. Right now my legs/feet feel colder than they should and weak, like I have circulation issues or something.
I'm absolutely frightened of it being something serious like leaukemia. I've booked an appointment with my GP but the soonest I could get was next Friday, and I don't know if I should be asking for an emergency appointment instead. I'm scared of having a severe illness and that week of wait being the difference that kills me. Are my symptoms enough to warrant an Emergency appointment? Does this sound like something serious, or is it likely just IBS + anxiety?
