Introduction/health scares
« on: January 07, 2014, 04:27:08 AM »
I'm new here, I am a 20 year old female and I found this page while googling symptoms of everything I was feeling (of course). I never have really had anxiety before until recently so I'm not professionally diagnosed, but it runs in my family. A week ago I went to the ER with an extremely uncomfortable pain in my lower left abdomen. It was more of a feeling of fullness, and I was worried because I had never felt something like that before and after googling my symptoms I instantly thought it was ovarian cancer. When I went to the ER they did blood work and an ultrasound and a urine test. My blood work came back great and the ultra sound found a 1.4 cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary and they said there had been a 2cm one on my left that had ruptured. It was a relief hearing it was nothing too serious but I never got my period last month, and I still haven't gotten it but they said that was most likely from the cyst, but it still freaks me out. Ever since my trip to the ER I have had awful anxiety and am constantly thinking something is wrong with me to the point where I'm afraid to sleep. Two days ago I went to the doctor because I was having pain during bowel movements and had a very uncomfortable feeling in my lower right back and my butt. My doctor said nothing seemed to be wrong with me. A day later I had  stabbing pains under the right side of my rib cage that I automatically assumed was appendicitis, however I didn't have a fever. I then googled what it could be and it said there could be an infection with my gallbladder or liver. I had those pains for two days (they would come and go) and now they have stopped and now I've been having tingling in my feet and left hand/fingertips. I can't sleep because I'm afraid something is actually really wrong with me internally. My mom keeps telling me I'm fine and to talk myself out of it but it's so hard to. I have been googling everything!  :(
