Ok, im really struggling to keep it together, i suffer from Health Anxiety and about 3 weeks ago my doctor said I had IBS, because i was having trapped wind at night on and off for 4/5 weeks.
It then started to go into the day, so I cut out Milk and cheese, seemed to work, but still odd feeling at night.
I then started thinking, its cancer, 2 doctors have felt my stomach and said it feels fine, normal, but my syptoms arent going away (im on Lanspozale) also I am now waking up at about 11.30pm with weird stomach issues, no pain or anything but feeling of butterflies or shock, or sudden droping, this is keeping me up all night, might get 2/3 hrs sleep.
I have been stressing so much and now today im getting little pains in my belly button, so again thinking its Stomach Cancer.
So far i've had no pain, no blood in stools, no weight loss, but feel this is coming any day.
As said during the day im fine, a few toliet runs in the morning, but then absoultly fine, until bedtime.
Am i just stressing so much that its affecting my stomach to the point of this belly button issue?
or am i right to think there is something more sinister going on?
My Dr has given me some tablets to try for anxiety (getting them today) and wants me to see somebody, but im so worried they wont work.
i feel so scared 24/7 and alone and my wife has had enough.
