Firstly I have a high level of anxiety. So I may be over thinking everything and I don't want to Insult anyone who has been diagnosed.
About a week ago I started having an uncomfortable gut with some mild pain. This couldn't my anxiety to flair up instantly. I then lost my appetite completly and have lost 7lb in a week. Which is very unlike me.
I went to the doctors and she thought I just had constipation and gave me laxatives. All I got out was liquid so she told me to stop taking them. She then ordered full blood tests. Liver function, fbc e.t.c and they have all come back absolutely fine. But I have a constant bloated feeling in my upper abdominal area. Right where my ribs stop. I haven't got my appetite back and of course Dr Google has come up with the worst. Doctor has told me to come back in 2 week's for a follow up to see if it clears up. I'm worried sick. I lost my father 6 years ago to bowel cancer and I've convinced myself I have it. I would also like to point out that this bloated feeling isn't painful.
Apart from the loss of appetite and the alight weight loss and the bloating I don't have much in the way of symptoms. But that doesn't help me not freak out. I'm hoping it's just a stomach bug or maybe ibs but I can't shake this feeling. I don't know why I'm writing this post to be honest. But I was just hoping for some advice.
It has only been a week but I never usually get like this. I'm.a 29 yo male.
Would like to take this time to thank you for the time you've taken to read my post. And I look forward to hearing from you all.
