I'm Gabor, 18, from Hungary, and I've found this site pretty recently. This site gave me a huge confidence boost, so I thought why not registrate and be part of this awesome community.
I've been hypochondriac for 1,5 months now. It all started out as a little lower right abdominal pain. Ever since then it has been crazy. I've diagnosed myself with appendicitis, kidney failure, kidney stones, kidney infection, heart attack, imsomnia, bladder infection, prostatitis, proteinuria BHP, hernia, UTI, liver cirrhosis, hepatitis C, gastroenteritis, liver fluke, and possibly others that I've missed. All that from a (probable) muscle strain. Crazy. Graduation didn't help either. I was in my absolute worst shape, and had to learn like 500 pages. Now I feel a lot better, I am still getting abdominal pain (lower left, upper right, upper left, but never in the middle), but ever since I've been sleeping on a mat on the floor my kidney issues went away. Interesting thing is, when I am in a pain, I only get pain from one area. Never from multiple areas. :)
My blood work revelead that I have myeloperoxidase deficiency, so I guess that didn't help that much either.
My biggest fear though is getting appendicitis. Especially when I'm off home. It just comes out all of a sudden, and you can't do anything to lower your risks. Pretty creepy.
Anyways, welcome everyone, it feels great to be part of this community. Whenever I have the urge to google my imagined symptoms, I rather come here for reassuance. :)
