I haven't posted on here in a while because my health anxiety went away. My anxiety has been under control, and I have been focusing on school to keep my mind busy. So the fact that I am having these symptoms is really scaring me!
My stomach has been acting up lately. For over a year I have had times where I will randomly pass mucus without stool. Sometimes there is mucus in my stools, too. This still goes on. I had a stomach virus a month ago, which I have never had before. I also get bloated after eating a little as well. The thing that is really scaring me are these stomach pains that just began...
The other day I was hungry and my stomach was growling and each time it growled I would get pains. Then on Saturday I noticed my stomach felt slightly crampy like it hurt. I never get stomach aches. So I ate and the pain went away. But yesterday morning the scariest thing that is really worrying me happened. I was laying in bed and all the sudden I started getting a cramping pain right below my chest. It spread into my back as well. It started hurting for a few seconds every couple of seconds. I figured it was gas and went back to sleep, but throughout the day I experienced the pain again, just less severe. This morning the same pain happened! When I'm hungry the pain is worse, and the pain happens when it feels like my stomach is about to growl.
I've put all these symptoms together and I think it must be stomach cancer or some other type of cancer. I never get pains like this or anything of this sort, so I know something has to be wrong! I haven't been eating differently or anything; the only thing is that I have switched from my name brand birth control to a generic form of another type since my name brand doesn't have a generic. I've also had this random tingle in my back near my spine for months now. It tingles when I lay down or move a certain way, so now I think a tumor in my stomach or somewhere is causing this.
