Worried about my stomach again..
« on: April 10, 2014, 07:48:15 AM »
I woke up today awfully nervous for some reason. I blame the zombie dream.

When I wake up I feel famished often, it's abnormal. My stomach doesn't gurgle or bleed but I do have gas problems. Sometimes it gets hard to breathe or it hurts because gas gets stuck in my chest. I have a lot of heart palpitations, lower back pains, and random breast/chest pains; especially under my breasts.

Yesterday around 10 PM I got an agonizing pain in my lower area, almost like period cramps. I came down with random diarrhea and the pain subsided. I had a lot of gas earlier at dinner time; drank three cans of ginger ale to no help. My stool seemed to have some black spots and my mom complained of a strong smell but it didn't seem too abnormal.

All this trouble began a few months ago, around late January. My doctor put me on Zantac for a little bit and after eating it my excessive gurgling went away but not really the other problems. I ran out of my own dosage of Zantac yesterday too, not that it was helping much lately.

At age 18 I'm too young for colon cancer... Usually. Also ovarian cancer is not out of the question, especially considering I missed periods for one year. I don't know anything about stomach cancer honestly, but a little research on here told me it's incredibly rare under 50 and in the US overall.

My GI physician said that stomach cancer is on the decline and that it is
rare in individuals under 60. Your issues are probably a combination of
stress and diet.

My diet hasn't changed at all. I was fine all throughout yesterday, assured myself my stomach issues were IBS brought on by stress, but the sudden pain made me freak. I've been getting pains in my pubic area for two months now but it's taking forever to get an OBGYN appointment.
