I’m 17. My health anxiety started off when I started to get these little pinpoint red dots on my arms. For the first time ever I looked up my symptoms and the first thing it showed was Leukemia. I freaked out and started getting pain in my right ribs and thought it was my liver. After that I begged my mom to go to the doctor. We went there and took blood tests but we never got a call about the results.
Since then I’ve been freaking out over other things like Melanoma, colon cancer, and pancreatic cancer. First it was melanoma when I found this mole on my back that was a little bit bigger than an eraser and it freaked me out. Then I started to have little white dots in my stool and my stool would float, which sounded alarm for pancreatic cancer. I went from going to the bathroom to poop 3 times a day to only once every morning.
Then a week later I started to have blood in my stool, kind of an orangish red color. A couple days later I noticed blood and these black stripes in my stool and completely lost my mind. I went to take out my dog a few minutes after that and when I took him out I had cramps where my liver is and freaked out.
My mom took me to the ER and they did a CT scan and said I had an inflammation in my bowels. Also they took my blood and said my red blood cell and white blood cell levels looked good. They gave me pills and said if it doesn’t get better in a few days go to see a GI.
It’s a few days later now and I’ve only had to poop twice and there was blood both times and black specks when I wiped. I have these red rashes on my legs and chest. Im getting pain in my armpit that’s comes and goes. Pain in my thighs that come and go, stomach cramps once in a while. I also get pain on my wrist, knuckles, shins and elbows that come and go.
And another thing is I have this lump below the center of my chest, I’ve had this for at least a few years and am scared it’s a tumor. My heart rate also increases a lot throughout the day and am scared it’s a heart disease.
Sorry for the super long thread I just wanted to get everything out and leaving nothing out.
