Firstly, I want to apologize for my bad English but it's not my native language
So I've had tummy aches since I was a child. I always thought they were what "butterflies in your stomach" felt like, cause I only got them before events or out of the ordinary things. Anyway, in 8th grade I started having annoying abdominal pains really often and I actually didn't know why so i kinda brushed it off. Although sometimes i would get quiet scared because I thought i had some kind of cancer or something because I was smoking but anyway after a while i realized they would go away when i got home and layed in bed by myself. Again, i brushed it off and after a while I even got used to it and I knew pretty much when i was going to have another hit of pain but nothing really helped. So now i'm technically in 10th grade, I moved to Germany only one year ago and the pain got so so so bad. My anxiety got like 100 times worse. There's barely a day that goes by without at least 30 minutes of pain. Once i had those aches for 3 days straight. Day and night so I got pretty anxious and I went to the doctor to check it out. I got ultrasound and he said everything's fine, except that there's a bit too much air in my belly and he also told me to go make an appointment for endoscopy but the lady there told me that i'm actually not allowed to do it because i'm under 18. So pretty much i've got nothing done and the pains are too real. Also my parents don't want to hear about it, i only get yelled at when i bring up this subject. Is there anything i can do by myself to calm the pains? Pills only work if i'm home though.
