Hi guys, I joined these forums back in 2012. I was terribly concerned about back pain, loss of appetite, stomach problems etc..
I'm noticing a pattern, every time spring time roles around (April,May,June) I get symptoms.. usually ranging in the ones I've stated above.
Currently, I have on and off back pain, Stomach "ickness" if you will, an appetite that's not my "normal".
I still eat roughly about 3 to 4 times a day because I know I should eat, so when I do start eating, I have no problems finishing my plate.
However, I know that if I waited to eat until my body actually told me to, I might eat once or maybe only twice.
I checked my history on here, I noticed a pattern that I tend to have these problems in spring. It's sort of odd, I mean I could guess it may be related to allergy's "even though my respiratory system is fine" it's strange to see this.
Pancreatic Cancer stinks, it has vague symptoms such as these - I've convinced myself before that I had it when I didn't. I've been doing pretty well on trying to keep my head in the right spot when this happens, but I must admit I get the fear flare up when I look at the clock and notice I didnt eat in 4 to 5 hours and not really hungry.. I start letting my mind wonder to the WORST case scenario.
Stool colors have been the norm "for me" and once in a while a bout of loose diarrhea (not watery) can occur. Increase flatulence (Gas) but not severe, probably due to lack of eating as much.
Over all, if I follow my pattern from since 2012, this will pass and I'll be fine. But what if this is different?.. what if I'm wrong?..
I dont have family with cancer and yet thats always my first worry. I need my logic to rule me out of this. Anyone have thoughts on this?.. The yearly "spring" loss of appetite and back ache is just odd to me.
