Worried about like 3 drifferent things at once :( I'm struggling to cope with this

Posted , 4 users are following.


So I posted here about  bowel issue I think about a week or maybe a bit longer ago now and I went back to the Doctors and she said the same tbh stress maybe ibs and anxiety it's sort of got better I'd say been once today so far and that's it although I was a little constipated have been since 1 week friday but its hardened up and the feeling of that weird sensation has gone. I still feel like I haven't completed when i went  earlier on though but i do think there is more in there. I'm trying to calm down on the toilet i was so anxious before a bm and during incase something happens or it doesn't come out right so I don't know If i'm tensing up on the toilet or something. I've now implied a rule I will flush before I even turn around and not even look. Last friday I had an urge and just passed a bit of clearish mucus no stool I've had this in the past though for years although it still concerns me to this day.

Second fear Lymphoma sad

Yesterday I'm not sure if it's been here for years i thought before it was part of my neck but just under my chin i think it might be the submental lymphnode unless I'm feeling a part of my neck that should be there. It's quite hard painless and immobile slightly bigger than a pea I'm pretty sure it's immobile I don't know if it moves or my skin just moving over the top of it sad this has me terrified.

Slight pimple type bump in top of left testicle or in the epidiymis.

About 2-3 weeks ago now when i was showeing at the top of my left testicle it feels like there's a soft squidgy moveable pimple thing at the very top. The weird thing is when I lie down it feels like a vein and sometimes it's hard to find so it might move a bit or be in the scrotum it self. I might have had this years aswell not too sure my head is just gone atm. Anyway when i did have a shower yesterday i checked again and i think it is in the epidiymis or around that area because I pushed on it and my fingers on the lump were right at the top away from the testicle structure it self but it still scares me.

I have a pea sized one on my right epidiymis that I've had ooh for about 5-6 years now gotta be maybe even longer than that which is stupidly never got it  checked out. Also if you had some shrinkage in your left testicle would it be very obvious from the outside as in you'd see saggy skin? or am i being paranoid at this point?

I've just felt terrible for the last nearly 3 months now so scared, alone and even if it does get better a little and subsides. I'm really worried that one day one of the above things is going to be the death of me and come back and hit me later on. 

Also not sure if this is more of a sympton of depression but atm I'm having terrible intrusive thoughts like wishing above on my aswell and other bad things sad

    The kast one is most likely an ingriwn hair or reverse hair growing. Keep it clean and do warm soaks with a wash cloth. Maybe a dab of neosoporine when all done. You can always see a dermatologist on that one. pressing it and poking it alot will aggravate it, you are interferring in its healing process by proding it.

    Go and see you doctor and explain all these things to her/him. They will the necessary checks and you will have reassurance.

    All people occasionally pass mucus with stools.

    If you had lymphoma you'd be feeling progressively more and more terrible. You're probably feeling a salivary gland in your neck.

    Anything at all can cause people to die, eventually, so it would be a good idea if you didn't obsess about things that are almost certainly severe anxiety disorder playing tricks in your head.

    Could you try to stop googling everything that you think may be wrong with you?

    Please see your doctor for reassurance and then have some therapy. This works well on people with anxiety disorders. Please also come back to the forum to tell us how you're doing - we're here to support one another and we don't want you to be be panicking alone.   Love Tess

    Ur not alone. Just today I have told my self I have leukemia then breast cancer and now I'm having heart failure after nearly fainting out walking. I get really bad bowes troubles and gas when I'm anxious and this convinced me I have stomach cancer. I get heart burn and indigestion from heart burn and this leads me to think it's a heart attack. I am a lunatic walking about at times. If someone talks about a sick person I get obsessed with getting answers about their condition.
