    Unhappy Spiralling - seizures, testicular cancer, bowel cancer

    Hi everyone

    January has not been a good month health anxiety wise... I've done "dry January" as I believed alcohol was causing anxiety but, 24 days in, it seems my anxiety is worse (I was a weekend only drinker


    Brain tumour/seizure worries
    Last year in work, I remember a colleague (a Pharmacist specialising in Neurology) telling us about a very rare case report where somebody had "goosebumps" (and other symptoms of temporal lobe epilepsy) that was actually a glioblastoma. At the time, I remember "saving" this memory in case I ever got weird goosebumps that could mean seizure. Well, I've noticed for the last few months (and only now it's started to worry me) that I'll get a sensation of goosebumps on the top of my right thigh only. It lasts only 1-2 seconds. I'm worried this is a seizure. I do remember getting similar sensations on my head before, but these went away. I don't think I'm cold when this happens, but maybe I am?

    Testicular cancer
    My right testicle has had pain in it for 1 week. No lumps, no blood in semen.

    Bowel cancer
    Been constipated again... Worried this is bowel cancer.

    I know I sound like a nut case. But I'm genuinely worried. I asked one of my good friends (a colleague) what they thought. They looked at me like I had five heads, but told me to go to the doctor in case the testicular pain is an infection....

    Any advice appreciated, especially about the seizures..

    You're connecting extremely common, daily symptoms with extremely rare diseases.

    I'm not sure what anybody can tell you here that you don't already know.
