Basically, I went to my GP a few months ago because I got really bad recurrent indigestion when on holiday; stupidly looked it up on 'Dr Google' and then panicked. She gave me a prescription for Peptac-tried to take it but it was just so yuck it made me gag. She also did a range of blood tests in a hope of trying to reassure me I guess and felt my tummy.
Not sure exactly what ones she did in total, but do know they included full blood count, liver function, kidney function, and thyroid function. Anyway, these came back and were reported as 'normal'; she did say that my white blood cell count was slightly raised but that she wasn't concerned and didn't need to repeat/see me again. She offered me a course of Citalopram which I declined and got me to see a CBT counsellor.
Since then I began to pick up but went on holiday last week and my indigestion returned; this time pretty much constant and worse than ever. I am also experiencing pain underneath my left rib on and off. Every pain freaks me out!
My biggest question is what exactly would a FBC show anyway? She said to me that 'we could rule out any major underlying problem' with the results of my blood tests but I am simply not convinced.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated x
