I'm sorry about the impact your anxiety is having on you at the moment Anxietyman.

Despite your good intentions, it isn’t always helpful to spend time on a cancer forum like Cancer Chat as it can have a tendency to heighten a person's anxiety and make worries worse.

I know it's difficult but the doctors have reassured you and are trying to find out what is causing your symptoms so try to remind yourself of this when you find your fear is getting the better of you. 

We know that you have received some valuable help and support via private messaging already but there is a really good organization called Anxiety UK who may be able to help as well. They have a lot of handy tips and advice on managing anxiety on their website as well as a contact number you can call so do have a look when you can as it may prove useful at this time.

Fingers crossed you'll get some answers soon Anxietyman.

Kind regards, 

Steph, Cancer Chat Moderator

i noticed you had similar symptoms to anxiety man about pancreatic cancer. 

6 months ago I had a bad case of Gastroenteritis an infection from the stomach that can be triggered by E-coli infection from the bowel. 

Shortly after I had bloods done and my pancreas levels were high, i was convinced I had pancreatic cancer or serious pancreas issues as I felt so unwell everyday. 

Now they have done a scan and endoscopy f my upper AB and confirmed my pancreas is ok so it was just the stomach infection causing that many symptoms. 

A scan will settle your mind I’m sure. 

Try asking your GP for omeprizol and some probiotics to get your stomach healthy again, you will get there I’m sure. 

Im on here because I’m being tested for tumour on my ovaries and it took me a while to get to this stage because of past stomach infections I ignored my symptoms, however dr’s can detect serious disease’ and will send you for the right tests if they do so try and trust the professionals and think positive xx

I’ve had the same yes 99% sure it’s not pancreatic Cancer, well 99% is not 100% and I am convinced I have it anxiety doesn’t cause agonising physical pain and anyone who tells you it does are not a competent doctor because it isn’t them who are suffering!
