I think this will help me...

Current symptoms
Right now I have headaches, tingling sensation in my body feet hands and back, pelvic pain, IBS pain, heartburn, neck and shoulder pain, feeling anxiuos, tired, body aches.

Current fears
Lupus - just because I close friend has it and it's really driving me crazy
MS - But I got a MRI that was clean
Colon cancer - I have IBS and pain, getting a colonoscopy in a few weeks, doctor doesn't think he will find anything bad.

Previous fears that turned out to be HA
Brain tumor, breast cancer, ovary/uterine cancer, HIV, stomach cancer, and probably many more that I can't remember now.

What are yours?

Fears:

Brain tumor
Brain cancer
Heart disease
Lupus
Colon cancer
Ovarian cancer
Stomach cancer
Cervical cancer
Bladder cancer
Hearing loss
Fibromyalgia
Multiple Sclerosis

Symptoms:

Fatigue
Tension headaches
Pressure on head with no pain
A sort of crawling feeling in my head, almost like when your feet falls asleep
Agitation
Mild fevers (99 degrees)
Sometimes my temp is low (96 or 97)
Bloating
Nausea
Excess gas
Constipation
Sharp, random pains in my diaphram
Joint pain
Pain mostly on the right side of my body
Mild insomnia
Anxiety
Spasms in my stomach
Neck pain

I'm only eighteen so 10-1 this is all stress related however I'm terrified. I convince myself I'm fine then something happens or a new symptom occurs and I relapse. I was triggered today by something in my Youtube subs box, spent the entire afternoon contemplating mortality, then had a random freak out. I don't think I'll be sleeping today.

My fears are brain tumor and ms.

Ms is my biggest and has been for months now

I've not had any tests to rule any out. No health insurance so I'm kinda in a bad spot.  :traurig001:

Besides the eye doc who says I have perfect eyes.

Symptoms
Tingling in hands and feet. This has been going on 24/7 for about 8 months. Since I ever read up on MS
Headaches
Eye floaters, after images
Dry eyes/pain more in left eye
Tingling all over body at times.
Frequent urination had this problem for years before I ever had HA
Shakes
Left arm feels week sometimes
Head tingling at times.
Facial tingling
Ears ringing but I've had that for 3 years almost. Been to 2 ent's. The second one ruled out it being related to brain issues so that's a good sign. I got tinnitus during a very bad head cold.

It's always been a fear of mine. I never want kids. I'm on birth control, rarely have sex anymore, but I'm always worried I'll be one of those statistic pregnancies. Worried that a pregnancy test didn't pick up a pregnancy months ago and even if I'm inactive for months I could still wind up 4-5 months pregnant. When I do have sex regularly I buy 1-2 tests a month just to be sure.

I take back what I said in my previous post. My cancer fears are currently minimal. There's an edging worry that I could have a cancer in me and show no symptoms until it's too late but.. I do still have brain tumor worries but currently I'm more scared of below the neck.

I keep on getting gas stuck in my chest and it gets hard to breathe. I get random pains in the side of my chest and when I drink seltzer water it feels cold and noticeable as it goes to my stomach. It's probably IBS but I worry about stomach cancer or a heart issue. My breathing is fine so I don't worry about lung cancer. I got an EKG a few weeks ago and it came back fine, plus I have no heart pain when walking, but I worry about a random heart attack.

I didn't start developing these symptoms until a few weeks ago, after my anxiety attack. It could be iBS brought on by anxiety... Or it could be the cancer getting worse. My symptoms went away for a few weeks but now they're back.

I thought only seniors get stomach or bowel cancer but I read a story of a 19 year old who died because doctors mistook her colon cancer for IBS. She had extreme fatigue, bloating, loss of appetite and developed an intense thirst. I have fatigue issues, mild bloating, and occasional appetite issues. I've read colon cancer rates have gone up by 120% in under 30 year olds within the last decade.. Colon and stomach cancer are tricky because they're hard to diagnose. Not everyone starts losing 40 pounds and bleeding profusely, especially not early on.

I want a colonscopy, brain scan, EKG, and a cat scan however you can't just walk into an ER and get them. Plus I'm not even 20 so they're probably just gonna tell me I'm paranoid and too young for any illness; when I went to the ER for the EKG they said I was too young for heart attacks. My mom is getting a colonscopy - she's pissed she has to drink that gross liquid - but I envy her to bits. I'm too young for doctors to require frequent colonscopies, or even mammograms.

Symptoms:
Muscle pain, cramps, twitching. Fatigue.
Fears:
ALS
Past fears that turned out to be HA:
Stomach/Colon cancer (This was the big one that kickstarted it all)
HIV
I've also actually had fears that my injuries were worse than they were (Thought I Tore an ACL, but it was a partial tear in a tendon type of thing)

Oh, and ovarian cancer is a biggy. I often compare myself to my grandma who had OC but I know it strikes differently. I have had one period in the last 10~ months, light spotting twice, occasional pain down there (it began happening two months ago), a recent UTI, and now IBS and fatigue. My doctors have been putting off a PCOS exam for months because of my age.

Now that I think about colon cancer, a few weeks ago I had no appetite. I just wanted to drink water.. I think my great-grandma died of colon cancer but I don't know of anyone else in my family. A few weeks ago my poop had some dark stuff in them for a few days but now it looks fine.
