so long story short I started having stomach issues around 4 months ago. Stomach spasms, liquid diarrhea, constipation and sometimes bad bloating/gas etc. Dr thought and still thinks its IBS with a lactose intolerance that makes it worse when I eat dairy. I quit eating dairy around 3 months ago and when I accidentallyate ice cream I was sick for 4 days. Asked for a colonoscopy which he ordered and the colonoscopy came back normal along with a biopsy that was taken. But it was almost like my mind started searching for the next sickness to worry about (before the colonoscopy I was convinced I had colon cancer)
now I'm still experiencing bloating and spasms and wierd stomach sensations, along with a general itchy feeling made worse by stress. With the itchiness now I am completely scared I have pancreatic problems or maybe cancer, I am terrified. Although I had read something about itching being the first sign of jaundice and had a 4 day long itching episode, it subsided when I starting thinking about other things. Now it is back and the first thing I think about in the morning is itching and I feel itchy, with no visible rash. I have always been a worrisome person and when I was 12 I had a horrible bout with OCD in which I wouldn't touch anything and had to take medication and attend therapy because I would wash my hands 30 + times a day. I was scared I would touch something with HIV infected blood.
now I know I have stress issues and my doctor has referred me to a gastroenterologist, I want to ask if I've been having these symptoms for the last 4 months could it be my pancreas ? such as cancer? it terrifies me to even say it. When the itching started it got me really scared.
thank you for reading all of this
