I'm really freaking out here! I have had stomach symptoms going on since before Christmas. They symptoms are:
-Severe upper to mid abdominal pain
-feeling constantly uncomfortably full even when I've only eaten a small amount of food or drink for hours
-feeling of gas trapped in the chest and not able to relieve it, sometimes I can feel it radiating all the way to my back
-Every once in a while I get these intense "attacks" where it feels like the most extreme gas and hunger pains together and it lasts 4 to 5 hours
-my stomach is painful to press on when standing, but just sensitive when lying down
-nausea all the time
I've tried Tums, Gas meds, and Ranitidine. None had any effect what so ever
My doctor recently ran blood tests for H.pylori and regular stuff like CBC, and I had an ultrasound. The ultrasound came back normal as did the blood work.
H.pylori and gall stones have been ruled out.
I'm waiting now on a referral to the Gastroenterologist for an endoscope, but it's a 6 month wait!
I flat out asked my doctor if it's something serious like a tumor and she said no. But why can't I believe this? What else could it be? What if she missed something? What if I didn't explain my symptoms clearly?
I can't handle feeling like this everyday. Usually with my HA, once a test comes back all clear and the doctor says don't worry, I start to know my symptoms go away. My stomach is getting worse though!
I'm terrified it's cancer - my number one fear!!! Can someone please help calm me down while I wait to see the specialist? Does anyone know what it could be, anyone with the same symptoms?
Thank you, I really do appreciate any help!!
