xxAMYxx I agree with you... my MS fears seem mild compared to the fears of some of the scarier things.  I'm nearly 50, so now it's worse because i see people say stuff like, "But you're only 27, and it's VERY RARE before age 50".... greeeeaaaatttt! LOL   It's not unusual to see 50 y/o people get all sorts of nasty things.  The only thing that keeps me sane is my mother (who at 80 years old) is in PERFECT health -- doesn't even take any meds.  Also, my father lived to be 91, so I've got that going for me.  I wish I could say that HA goes away as you mature... it doesn't go away, but you have longer periods between freak-outs because you know your body a little better and realize that every odd sensation is not the onset of an illness.

I've had diabetes, colon cancer (probably 3 times), blood clots, brain tumour, nasal cavity tumour, leukaemia, lymphoma, stomach cancer, HIV, lung cancer, skin cancer, and recently breast cancer. I really need to stop paying attention to these little things. When I actually get sick, I know that I'm actually sick so I expect my body would actually let me know if I really had a problem. It wouldn't be just a little ache.

There's quite a few of them for me.  I was certain I had leukemia (now it's creeping back in my head), a heart attack, brain tumor, pancreatic cancer, and colon cancer.  I'm only 20 years old, yet I am constantly worrying about all of these diseases.  Google is just cruel...you type in one problem, and immediately it gives you the worst case scenario.

What were your "pancreatic cancer" symptoms?

Also if you had stool symptoms

rabies, skin cancer, breast cancer, any cancer, premature death of any premie related kind, diabeties, weight related diseases and conditions, food born illnesses like e-coli, overdose on anything like water, salt, etc.,gum diseases, the plauge, anything that comes from an animal, this list could go on and on , death is the end result I fear. I am going through theraphy but it never seems like enough... I am also eating healthier and exercising more, but as I said it never seems like enough my anxiety just keeps coming back! I think it's hormonal but my dad won't give my a blood test to test that theory...I fear a lot...

On medication, which is doing fine, it's all trial and error...

Oh, endocarditis!  I forgot that one!  Yeah, was sure I had that. 

I did not.  (I am however prone to splinter hemorrhages when I bite my nails.)

Heart problems. Right now at the moment, a brain issue. Even though I had a ct scan without contrast.

TO I AM HEALTHY: (WARNING PC INFO)
What were your "pancreatic cancer" symptoms?  I guess I truly don't have any.  I took the plunge and visited a pan can website. Statistics show (lucky for you) PC is unheard of in people under 30.  I am nearly 50 and had sore ribs on my left side near the waist, but not one patient mentioned their rib cage but one lady said intense side cramps with jaundice.

Also if you had stool symptoms:  I've had golden/light brown stools, dark brown, greenish, sinkers, floaters, you name it. In people with PC, their stools are extremely pale or clay colored (sometimes gray), loose and fatty. The vast majority first presented with agonizing pain radiating from the stomach to the back and / or jaundice. Many had severe nausea, vomiting and could not eat solid food. 

If I were asked to bet my life savings on you or I having this, I would have to say NO.  BTW, I read that there has not been a single case of a 20 year old developing it, so you're in the clear.  You could have IBS, diverticulitis or lighter stools due to rapid transit time when stressed, but not PC.  God Bless you!

I'm constantly thinking I have some type of cancer. Now that I'm having fevers, night sweats, and hot flashes that certainly isn't helping. I've thought I've had many other things as well, but cancer is always most prevalent. I also believe I am pregnant right now as well so... I don't even know what will happen if I really am  :(
