My name is Hima and I'm 22. I've been really stressed out by all the health issues that have happened to me and it has just gotten worse.
So it all started with me feeling sore on the sides and upper parts of my breasts near my underarms, and on the outer parts of my underarms. I also felt a little hard bump in my right breast near my areola, which hurt when I touched it. I was really worried because I read that the soreness could possibly be a sign of breast cancer. I went to my doctor and he ordered an ultrasound of my breasts and they didn't find anything. I was told that can happen during ovulation and once you get your period it will be gone. And eventually it just went away on it's own.
Come last Saturday, (second day of my cycle) the soreness came back, along with the hard bump in my right breast, so I started stressing out again. I figured it would just go away like it did before but it hasn't. I went to my chiropractor yesterday and he told me it's most likely just because I've been tense and stressed out, which is affecting my posture and everything. And I agreed with him, that's why I've been seeing him this whole time is to fix my posture.
Then last night, all of a sudden I started feeling soreness in both my shoulder blades. It's not a stabbing pain but like a dull intense ache, like someones grinding their knuckles into them.
And stupid me decided to google it and I saw that it could mean you have lung cancer, breast cancer, heart problems. Which there is no history of any of those in my family, but I can't even rationalize that to myself. And no one in my family smokes either.
My chiropractor called me and told me it's most likely an extension of the soreness from my underarms, and breasts, and the stress and tension which has led to inflammation of those muscles. And I want to believe him, but I'm just so worried.
I have been really stressed out this past month with not having a job, life issues, these health issues, and we recently lost our cat suddenly which has taken its toll on me. Another thing that happened to me was I started feeling slight numbness and tingling in my hands/feet. But I had blood work done and I'm borderline anemic which is why that was happening. The rest of my bloodwork was normal.
I've just had all these things happen to me all at once, and I'm just so stressed out by all these symptoms one after another. I know it's probably just because I've been so stressed and anxious, but I'm just so scared.
I appreciate anyone who read that entire shpeel. And if anyone has any words of comfort...
