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  :(

I've had many, but I guess my main fears are stomach cancer, colon cancer, another blood clot in my stomach (superior mesenteric vein thrombosis) which I've had one, brain cancer (my current fear because of phantom smells), and hantavirus. I think I'm also afraid of results or just finding out something after a test.   I want to know if something is wrong so it can be taken care of, but I fear knowing because maybe it can't.  My current phantom smell scares me because there are so few causes that aren't horrible. And as you get older, I think I worry more, too, since many diseases aren't prevalent until older ages.  I hate HA.

My trigger was 2 months ago, I was convinced I had rabies but it was anxiety causing all the tingles, changes in health too. Now I still think I have A *S.

The funnyist thing i was convinced i had was tetnus! My doctor laughed and said that he had never seen someone with it only in videos at medical schooland she had travel in poor countries to work where the chances are more likely and still never saw it!  She gave me tetnus shot anyway and then o ofcourse feared the side effects...sometime you just gotta laugh.

Mad, you most certainly do not have ***.

I know I've addressed your fear before, but just to reiterate: you do not.

Definitely a brain tumor. In fact, in this very moment I am sure that I have one! I have also thought I had a heart attack, going blind, tetanus, pituitary gland tumor, oral cancer, and the list goes on.

However, the brain tumor is the only one where I was/am convinced I have! It's scary :(

One disease that I was Certain I had was meningitis! This fear was so strong that I cried most nights certain that I would not wake up, I even caused my own temperature to rise by working myself up, which worsened my fears! I, of course was perfectly fine.

Als. Even after five plus months of worrying. Never had worry like this before. That's how I known have this one. The calf twitching, self induced cramps, shaking while yawning and stretching. Nasal problems every morning...
