I'm a 21 year old male. Around 8-12 weeks ago, I had what I thought was tiny streaks of blood within my stool, after a stool test it turned out that there was no blood and everything was normal. However, around 6-8 weeks ago I developed a constant pain in my stomach, followed by bloating after eating. I don't have any trouble swallowing or vomiting, just this consistent pain and bloating in my stomach with the bloating being made worse after eating. I went to the doctor and discussed my symptoms on the 28th May and he put it down to gastritis, with my body over producing acid due to stress, he gave me a prescription of Lanzoprozole 30mg to help counteract the acid and told me to do a stall sample for H.pylori bacteria which came back as normal. The Omoprozole did help relive the pain and discomfort, however after finishing the course the pain came back.
I went to discuss this with a doctor on the 4th July and he put me on a course of Omoprozole 20mg which did not help relive the symptoms. Today (14th July) I saw a doctor who told me to have a blood test for gallstones followed by a stool test to test for inflammation of the gut, and an ultrasound test which is yet to arrive. I haven't lost any weight at all during all this, I have maintained my weight at around 10 stone.
In a very basic term, I am panicking about this persistent pain in my stomach, thinking that it is something like Stomach Cancer. I don't really know what to do, I am very very worried about this.
If anyone can provide any advice or just something to help me that would be very very helpful.
