So for awhile I was good. On the road to health anxiety recovery. Doing great!
I have a one year old and am breastfeeding. Wonderful!
Ok... the other day someone mentioned "wow, you look like you've lost weight." AND we're done!
That's all it took!
Now I'm weighing myself pretty much all day. Maybe 15 times a day. And here's what I notice.
I weigh less in the morning. Like 5 pounds less. Then throughout the day I put the weight back on. But now I'm eating tons because I'm freaking out that I've got something horrible going on. Have you googled "weight loss" recently? Not pretty!
Along the road here's what I've recently had:
I went to the ER a couple of weeks ago because of back ache and terrible fear that it was ovarian C... At the ER they did blood work and a CT scan of stomach and pelvis (but no contrast). Doctor said no C... but you know me, never one to miss... I googled it and it turns out ovarian C can only be seen through transvaginal ultrasound.. So off I went to OBGYN where I sat like a nut case until she gave me an ultrasound. No C. Ok... thought I was good. But my back aches. So must be something on my spine. Ran to my general doctor... He gave me spinal X-ray and ruled out any C there...
3 Years ago I went through some stomach issues and had a CT scan with contrast, a colonoscopy, an endoscopy... all came back fine. But now I'm here and thinking... maybe I need to go back to GI specialist for repeat on those tests and maybe I do have... you know... C... somewhere.
Um... what's my point?
Anyone else feel like they might be losing weight? Can weight loss be tied to anxiety?
Other illnesses I've thought I had:
Other tests I've had:
MRI, MRA, EEG, EKg, and the above mentioned, colonoscopy, endoscopy, CT scans, x-rays...
I've done embarassing things as well. I've even examined my poo in the past. LOVE health anxiety!!!
Please help me. I'm so scared that I don't know what to do and just want to run to ER tonight for a contrast CT and some major scoping. HELP ME PLEASE!
