Hello. I have suffered from health anxiety for 7 years. I've given myself many diseases. February I popped a rib out of place, which led to my belief in having breast cancer. Once that subsided, I developed a vague discomfort in my upper left abdomen. I am a special education teacher and have high stress. My DO wanted to wait to see once school was out for the summer if it went away. Well, for the most part, it did. 2 weeks into this new school year and it's back. No worse, no different, just back. It's left directly under my rib cage. I do deal with C, however, right now I'm regular, just this nagging discomfort. I try to be rational, if I had cancer (my biggest fear), it wouldn't go away, then come back and would assume it would be worse? Thoughts? Is this an IBS symptom? I feel I always have something wrong with me and when I'm not worried about something else, I feel it, otherwise, I'm too focused on whatever other ailment I've given myself....any advice, help, supplement, diet?
