Hi KH. Not sure if I can provide any answers for you but figured I'd share what i've been going through. Forgive me, this is long but i'll try and get to the point. So in October 2013 I had a major life change, I took a new job in Austin, Tx. I was born and raised in Portland, OR and lived there all my life, 34 years. I had to start my job and leave my Wife and son back in Oregon while we tried to sell our house which took 3 months. Needless to say it was quite an adjustment never being so far apart like we were. Well I have to admit prior to making this change I was a pretty heavy drinker, 1 or 2 weekday nights I would pound down the better part of a bottle of whiskey and then drink just as much on the weekends with my buddies. This was fairly consistent for 2 years... When I first got to Austin, I continued the drinking and it was just as heavy. In November I started experiencing some pretty bad abdominal discomfort and was not able to produce a solid bowel movement for over 3 weeks. I got really scared because I looked up my symptoms on Dr. Google and everything pointed to Colon Cancer.. (my Dad was diagnosed 1 year ago with Stage 3) I made an appt. with a GP who told me I was too young and then a GI Doc who said the same thing, I finally had a CT scan and it showed nothing. Shortly after my abdominal discomfort went away. (During that time I constantly felt bloated and eating the slightest amount filled me up) Along comes Dec. and we sold our house. I flew back to Portland, packed everything up, rented a UHAUL an d my family and i embarked on the 2300 mile journey to move to Austin. At this point all of the discomfort (and worry!) was gone, but I still felt that when I went no. 2, it felt different then what I have been accustom to. Next event... Feb.2014 rolls along and I start getting these headaches that are at the back of my head, and they last from the time I get up in the morning until I go to bed. After 2 weeks of this with no relief, I consulted Dr. Google again.. Now I'm convinced that I have a brain tumor. There is no change in my symptoms and and I am convinced of my own diagnosis that I hound my GP to get my an MRI of my head.... Well it comes back clear... Hallelujah!! All that stress and worry has been lifted and within a week the headache goes away. Well not more than a week after that, my abdominal pain comes back and I'm constipated again for about 3 weeks, I am seeing all kinds of little different types of stools pass... pebbles, thin ones, loose ones you name it. Well I figured it can't be colon cancer because I had the CT Scan and it came back clear... Again back to Dr. Google and I stumbled upon Pancreatic Cancer. I am now on week 12 with abdominal discomfort, no breaks. I've had bouts of feeling full after eating little, loss of appetite, mushy large floating stools and for the last 3 weeks back pain in my lower and mid back region that I can't shake. They are constant from when I wake up to when I go to bed... Needless to say I am freaking out and just want an answer to whats going on, I am sure I have developed Health Anxiety but the pain is real and I am at a loss as to whether its cause is internal or mental.
