cancer? so scared!cant stop crying
« on: January 06, 2014, 10:14:43 PM »
Would someone please talk to me?
I am extremely scared to a point where my hands are shaking and my heart is racing.
I can't shake this feeling that have cancer. what type? who knows....


my legs are bothering me. I'm laying on my bed and my legs hurt. The bone hurts. specially my left one.
I do nothing all day. I walk my dog, I work on the computer and I lay in bed when Im overstressed.

My knee feels like its burning. Sometimes my legs twitch and my heels and knees tend to get pins and needles. A LOT.

My hair is falling off. A lot, like in chunks.

My arms feel tired and I have to pause when typing every 4 to 6 words, because it hurts.
MY last bloodwork was off and so was the previous, the lymphocite and neutrophyl count. the doctor said no big deal, but it worries me....so so much.
my chest hurts. it stings.


I feel so tired physically and mentally.


I can't keep going to the doc. because I cant afford it.
My biggest fears are getting cancer or blood clots or heart attacks.

Im sorry if this is annoying. Really.

I know you probably are gonna say anxiety?
But i didn't really have any traumatic experience that would cause physical symptoms like actual pain, my leg really feels weird, and hair loss.

Also I know anxiety can lower your immune system, so that makes me anxious, and i guess its a snowball.

I can't offer any help or suggestions outside of the fatigue and hair falling out - while these very well may just be anxiety, these could suggest an underactive thyroid. It's called hypothyroidism, and I've had it for almost 5 years now. I take a little pill every morning to replace my thyroid hormones. But before I was diagnosed my hair was falling out, I was tired all. the. time. and depressed. Dr looked at my neck, which was abnormally big (she even asked me "have you looked at your neck?" to which I replied "um...everyday in the mirror when I'm putting on make up!" lol), sent me out for a thyroid ultrasound which showed I had a goiter. Did a simple blood test, which showed my levels were off. So she put me on thyroid replacement (synthroid) and my levels became normal, and my goiter disappeared. So did my hair falling out. I began to have more energy and wasn't so down in the dumps. Just a little suggestion. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Yes anxiety CAN lower your immune system, ESPECIALLY neutrophils.
Also, a poor diet due to stress will lower your neutrophil count and your lymphocytes as well. I'm speaking from experience.

Your symptoms do not sound cancer related, but they do sound like stress!

thank you everyone! I really apreciate your responses!

tymommy- I am 25 and I'm usually healthy. apart from the past two blood works, my immune system is always pretty good, as well as everything really. I am underweight. I should weight about 5 kg more for my height. Actually the past year I lost a little weight. But I've always been like this. I don't do it on purpose.

I know you guys are probably right. I hope you are.

Same here! I can imagine all kind of symptoms and after asking Dr. google, I diagnose myself with a weird kind of cancer.

I will be starting therapy next week and now I am taking anti-anxiety medication.

Don't underestimate this anxiety, seek help!
