So my HA was actually brought on by some digestive problems i started having a few months ago. I would get terrible acid reflux/ heart burn/gas pains/burping/constipation/diarrhea, the whole works.
I had an abdominal CT done in late October 2013 as well as an ultrasound (both in the ER, i went for sharp pain in my side thinking it might be appendicitis) and both came back totally clear.
My digestion issues come and go. For a while i was obsessing over my brain (thought i had a brain tumour) and the abdominal pain/IBS/reflux symptoms seemed to die down. But now today I saw my doctor who told me my latest blood tests all came back pristine. We talked about my anxiety for a bit and then i left feeling pretty good and reassured.
Then on the bus home, literally 20 minutes after the appointment, I felt a sharp pain in my right side, beside my belly button. I've had it for the last few hours. I have gas and reflux again. Also haven't had a bowel movement in a few days despite trying to up my fiber intake.
I'm 20 years old and of course i'm worried that this is all caused by some cancer that's sprung up since late october. My doctor doesn't think i need to do any tests for my GI tract just yet and I do really trust my doctor and like her a lot. I just can't stop thinking that i have some sort of cancer- mainly stomach, colon, ovarian or worst PANCREATIC.
I just hate feeling like this
