I am a 35 year old male, in decent shape 6ft 212 lbs and workout 3 times a week. Last June it started with a feeling in my stomach like I had to burp but couldn't and hearthburn . I googled my symptoms and obviously cancer was the first thing that came up and I panicked. I went to a GI Dr who looked at me and after giving me a thorough exam said since I was a father of two with a stay at home wife I had Gastritis. And ordered an Ultrasound of my abdomen, everything looked normal besides being diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver. He prescribed me Zantac 150 and I was on my way. After a few weeks symptoms completely went away with occasional bouts of diarrhea and muscle pain in my front obliques. ( Dr and GI dr said this was due to the belt I wear at work which weighs 12-20lbs depending on what is on it).Fast forward to November where I had blood in my stool, Again I started freaking out called my GI multiple times and he told me its nothing but due to my high levels of anxiety lets do a colonoscopy. That was done December 18th, 2018 and everything came back negative. He did say I had a high level of inflammation and possible IBS. Now the last two weeks I again have been looking up my symptoms which I know I should not do. My ribs hurt to touch depending on the day, and I feel like I am bloated often even though I am not. My stomach also randomly feels "hot" like its sunburned on the inside every few days as well as some light back pain, and sore muscles in my abs and sometimes hamstrings.I have had a colonoscopy, ultra sound of my stomach, blood work, CT scan and still have these symptoms. I am going crazy ..anyone else have similar symptoms or can offer any advice?
