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?
