I have suffered extreme levels of anxiety and emotional distress over the past year. About three weeks ago I started having persistent nausea and a loss of appetite. I don't think I've lost significant weigth thoughand my appetite has return now although I still feel a little discomfort in the stomach after eating.
I ended up in A&E a week ago. They did blood tests to check liver, pancreas and kidney function and for infections. They also checked blood count, glucose levels, THS, etc. All results came back normal. My GP also ordered C125 test for ovarian cancer and also for celiac disease. Results came back negative. I also had an ultrasound scan of my ovaries and the womb and everything was normal, no cyst or tumors.... For two weeks now I have passed about 5 bowel movements and the colour of the stools are still brownish but much lighter than they were before. They are soft and bulky sometimes a bit loose but no liquid diarrhea. I am really concerned about this change as when you google it you get all sorts of horrifying diagnosis. I've been also on anti-anxiety medication for two weeks now. The nausea has practically subsided but while waiting for results such as C125 I was extremely anxious and the nausea and tummy discomfort was more acute then. I am having an upper-abdominal ultrasound tomorrow and I am really struggling with high levels of anxiety as I am convinced they will find something sinister although my GP reassures me that the tests so far indicate there is nothing serious with my health.
I can't eat, I can't sleep. I cry frequently. I'm scared to death to go to the toilet in case my stools are still a lighter brown (sort of golden brown but like cardboard). My stools were dark brown before and I'm worried about this change. I have also been diagnosed with moderate depression and and I am currently waiting for CBT.
Sorry for the long email but I am extremely anxious and my appetite is gone again.
