The title is a little odd, but hear me out. I just want to know, how powerful can the mind be in terms of having HA.
Let me just start from square one. I had a real fear of possibly having testicular cancer about a month ago so I was checking myself constantly for a lump or something on my testicles. And during that time my testicles were hurting despite I didn't feel any lump of any kind...and I had gone to the doctor about it and they said I was fine. Then my fear has shifted to the possibility of having lung cancer...it's my most recent post. Anyway I noticed that my testicular symptoms subsided since my fear of lung cancer arose. Now I fear that I have a tumor growing in my lower abdomen, causing bad lower back pain. I have had lower back pain for quite some time now, but nothing is really helping it. It helps if I lay flat, and rest it on a pillow or something cushy.
And I have suddenly realized that my lung pain/discomfort went away, since I started focusing on that lower back pain that started BEFORE my lung pain I had 4 days ago. Now I feel like I don't have an appetite, and I just don't feel 100%. I have had lower right quadrant pain for about 2 years, intermittently. Now I'm concerned about a tumor being that and pressing up against my pelvis, and causing my lower back and pelvic pain. I'm just so miserable, I wish this would go away.
So my main question, how powerful is the mind, and what can it actually do to your body? Can it really cause symptoms to be that much more prevalent if you think about it that much? I'm so scared that I have a tumor or something pressing on my spine, and I want to go to the doctor, but I fear that they will find something...and for some reason I would rather not know.
