So I suffer from health anxiety. Constant googling and fearing the worst. I am 34, ex smoker (stopped 2 years ago) non drinker, moderately active and slim. Last week it was a brain tumour slowly killing me, I had a great couple of days after visiting the GP and being told nothing untoward was happening and a good chat with my sister. Cue pain under my ribs Monday morning waking me up at 5am and ruing my whole blooming week yet again 😢 Soooooo fed up with this. So I have the pain under my left ribs (feels like the back end of pregnancy when a baby's elbow or foot gets under there) my lower back feels like it's on fire and I have had loose bowel movements for over a week. (The pain only started monday). I say pain, it's not terrible pain, just nagging and "there". I have no other UTI symptoms other than perhaps weeing a but more than normal. I went to the gym yesterday and while I was on the cross trainer, miraculously it disappeared. Got home, and low and behold it started again. Had it all night and woke up with it again today. I've not been off Google since. It's driving me crazy. I don't want to go to the doctors yet again, I'm embarrassed and feel like they're going to get sick of me. I of course now think I have some sort of cancer. Can anybody help? Could anxiety be causing this or something more sinister??
