In my university library, surrounded by people working on assignments that I should be doing as well. But I can't-instead, fearfully obsessing over my declining health. I was doing so well, and then bam- a rushing bout of health anxiety due to scary things that have happened within the past 24 hours. Prior to this, I have just had more aches and pains through out my body. If you could offer some suggestions, or insight to the matter I would be very grateful. You people are so talented at putting the correct perspective on situations, and I would be immensely grateful for any feedback.
FIRST- yesterday while working out in a fitness class, I was doing push-ups (which I struggle with) on my knees, and then, all of a sudden I felt my heart beating very
strongly and fast, outside my chest. It was so strong and felt like it was right under the surface of my skin. I stopped immediately, scared, until in went away and my heart was "in" my chest. Has anyone ever had this? What could the cause be?
So I spent a whole night and day worrying about it- trying not to google. And then, today about an hour ago after a coffee and a snack I go to restroom, and have a soft
bowel movement that was mostly in one mass and a little darker than usual, with a streak of red blood. Hems are less common in younger people, and I wasn't constipated in the slightest-so I am very worried!
I have a fear of cancer of the lining of my organs (after reading a medical message board about a girl my age who was terminally ill after the (squamous-ish cancer near her ovaries) cancer spread to her brain. And on top of that, now I feel that I have an irregularity of the heart and digestive system!
I'm a mess- any feedback would be greatly apprecaite. Thanks guys.
