Been reading through the forum and find it comforting to have a community to communicate with!
Need some thoughts from everyone.
About 5 weeks ago, began to have "moving" lower abdominal discomfort. Cramp like feelings that would be fairly constant but would move, to my lower back or all around the abdomen. Felt like I was full and was constipated. Took several laxatives, cleaned out the system, but the discomfort has not gone away. Went to Primary Care who suggested blood work and a CT Scan of Abdomen and Pelvis with Contrast. Blood Work was okay - very minor elevation of WBC 12.0 above normal of 10.8. CT Scan was Normal. Dr. was not worried about WBC. Had blood tested again 1.5 weeks later and it had dropped to 11.08.
Stomach and back pain comes a goes but is always there is some capacity. I have been extremely stressed at work and now obsessed with finding out what is wrong with me. No prior medical issues. 35 happily married male. Become increasingly worried about stomach cancer or some other issue. Have been waking at 1 in the morning and again at about 4:30 -5:30 - not really from pain, but as soon as I wake up, I feel it.
Dr. sending for an Endoscopy, but do not know when I can get in yet. Prescribed 20MG of Prozac for anxiety - started yesterday and hoping that this medication helps eliminate these symptoms if it is stress.
Thoughts? Encouragement? I am feeling hopeless and discouraged and worry that something is really wrong.
