Hi not sure why I'm posting other than hoping to get some of my concerns out of my head. I'm really scared, I have been having niggling back pain only left side for several months. I also have swelling in neck (checked in March and ok) Previously been to gp few times who prescribed acid reflux tablets. Then over the last few months everything has spiralled out of control.
I have lost almost 2 stone in weight, my back ache is now pretty constant and gets worse when I eat, and keeps me awake, the pain is radiating to my left side and abdomen.i have no appetite, greasy stools and weirdly a swollen tongue. My skin is also really spotty and I look awful.
I do not have juandice, grey floaty stools or dark urine.
I went back to gp a few times and had full bloods all came back clear, she just thinks I am anxious but I demanded referral to gastroenterologist although she commented she was only doing it due to my anxiety. I had appt with consultant last week over zoom and now waiting for CT scan.
I took myself to a and e on Friday as the pain was so bad but again got fobbed off and told I had gastric issues and got a prescription for buscopan. The doctor told me I could NOT have cancer as my bloods were fine. I told him I wasnt medically trained but bloods do not detect most cancer!!! He said it would show in liver function. Again he just thought I had anxiety.
I can't stop crying, my poor partner and family are so worried about me. I have young baby who is only 6 months old and he was miracle baby after trying for 5 years im heartbroken that I might be sick and have to leave him. Im usually super fit and healthy and happy go lucky. I feel like im slowly fading away and nobody in medical profession believes i'm ill.
I'm chasing private hospital tomorrow for CT date. I'm certain it will be bad news but I just need to know so me and my family can then deal with whatever.
As I say I just needed to get my concerns out of my head.
