My abdominal pain has been constant day and night (very occasionally waking me in the night) for months now (I'd say at least 5 months). No let up, pain is pretty much there all the time. I'm peeing a lot more than usual and feel sick all the time (that's getting to me as much as the pain). I've also got bad lower back pain which painkillers don't touch. My bowels have changed during these last few months from going once every 4 days or so quite formed to going most days very loose or with mucus (I amtaking digestive enzymes to make me go more). I also keep getting hot flushes even in this cold weather. I'm also tired all the time but again that could be the anxiety. I have GAD and health anxiety. I also have the worst gas continulously popping from the top of my stomach to right down above my pubic bone, really violent popping. It keeps me awake at night sometimes as I can feel it so bad around my sides.My symptoms tell me Ovarian Cancer but whenever I go to the Dr's I get told the pain is IBS and that the nausea and fatigue is the anxiety. I had full blood tests about the time all this started (kidney function, liver function, full blood count, thyroid etc) and all came back normal apart from my ESR levels being raised which means I could have had an inflammation or infection somewhere in my body. My Dr sent me for a chest X-Ray which came back normal. Something else had abnormal written on the screen of my test results as well but my Dr didn't say what and didn't send me for any other tests.I just feel like my health has gone downhill recently, I'm breathless doing the slightest thing and just fed up of the pain and nausea. I also don't want to go to the Dr's because I'm scared of being told it is Ovarian Cancer. I just can't stop worrying and constantly stressing out about my health.Sorry for moaning and thanks for listening.
