hello im 19 and very confused and mad at the medical system, about a month and a half ago i started getting constipated and very bloated, i still am constipated but not as bad, my bowel habits are a bit off, i have been feeling sick, tired and i look pale. i also have a dull pain deep in my rectum, im not sure if its in my rectum or my colon, i can also feel that there is something there...i also have noticed red on my bowels but im not sure if its blood or food...it looks like red flakes, almost like tomatoe skin...

i feel the worst in the mornings...the doctor told me it would take 6 months for me to get a colonscopy...i have had blood tests and bowel tests and they all came back negative.... but im just very very worried i have colon cancer or a tumor....

i have pretty bad anxiety too so it might be making me believe i have a life threating illness but i am having all those symptoms and if i did not have anxiety i would still be very scared.
