Just thought Id write as Im at my wits end with everything and wanted some opinions before i go and pester my GP more.
ive always been a constant worrier, mainly with regards to my health, when i was in my young teen years i would get shooting pains in my head and pains in my side and was convinced i was dying of a brain tumour or some kind of cancer. the doctor put it down to stress.
it gradually went away and for the last 6 or 7 years ive been happy and quite carefree. i recently had a dramatic change in some ways from living abroad to back in the uk, going from busy every minute of the day to having a lot of time on my hands. ever since ive had problems with my health. first of all i lost my appetite and i had lost weight, i felt fatigued and tired, i have had pains in my legs, chest pains, shortness of breath, a constant sore throat, abdomninal pains which are still occuring, cramp and bowel problems, a sore tongue and mouth and have basically convinced myself i have several forms of life threatening cancer. i have been to the docs several times and had some blood tests but dont feel like they are taking my very seriously or even bothering to investigate if there is anything wrong with me.i know im probably being irrational but i feel i cant get over it until ive had everything fully checked out but i know this wont happen. i also know a lot of it could be due to stress. what should i do? what could be causign it, is it serious or simply my mind going crazy?
help is definately needed its driving me insane
