hi there everyone. I'll just get straight to the point, I'm extremely worried about having an aeortic anyurism (abdominal or thoracic) I'm at my wits end to be honest.
Im 23yrs of age, male, about 220lbs, don't smoke or drink. I consider myself healthy but overweight which I am working on.
My uncle had an abdominal anyurism two years ago although he is a heavy smoker with 40 plus years. Since then it's crosssed my mind from time to time but in the last month I'm going crazy with worry. I also have OCD which I dont think helps. I keep trying to tell myself to stop worrying.
Just last month I had to go to A&E with what my doctor thought was a slightly collapsed lung. My doctor listened to my chest, took my oxygen levels, and sent me I guess just to be sure. At the hospital I had Bloods taken, blood pressure checked about 3 times and a Chest x ray front and side, doctor At the hospital said it was a pinched nerve. Would a chest x ray have found an aortic anyurism in the upper chest or in the abdomen? I had the chest x ray just over a month ago
I also had open gallbladder surgery two years ago, I don't have much feeling near the scar it's numb but sometimes my lower abdomen gets sore. Would this have anything to do with what I mentioned above? I'd appreciate any help guys thanks.
