Just before Christmas, on a Sunday evening and randomly, I started to have stomach pains (like food poisoning). These continued the next day, I was also shivering and took the day off work. I wasn’t sick, my stools were fine and the next day the pain went down. However, since then the following symptoms have continued: acid reflux (I was diagnosed with this 4 years ago and have dealt with it on and off since then), sharp pains under both ribs, consistent pain/pressure under both ribs at different times, wind (burping and flatulence), stomach discomfort, some upper and lower back pain (mainly left sided) and burning heartburn – all these, on and off for about a month now. I am 30 years old, male, 5 foot 9 and 14 stone 7 pounds. I suffer with health anxiety. My stools and urine have been fine, my levels of energy are normal. I started taking 20mg Omeprazole when this started, now on 40mg Omeprazole (since last Tuesday). Seen one GP, she wasn’t worried, felt tummy and said nothing I said made her think of cancer but I am worried about pancreatic cancer. Can you give me any words or advice? Hopefully to say I 100% don’t have this!
