    That's what I'm trying to tell myself. I woke up today with such bad upper back pain I've convinced myself even more this is the "C"

    Still waiting on my test results aswell.

    Re: Cancer Fear!

    Results are back. Dr says they're satisfactory. I've seen them myself and have noticed my red blood cell count is slightly over the threshold.

    I managed to actually eat more yesterday than I have in a while but this morning I just feel sick again.

    Dr wants to weigh me again in a few weeks but I'm not convinced there isn't something awful wrong.

    Would it even show up in bloods? I'm doubting them so much

    I personally think that your lack of appetite/feeling sick is a symptom of anxiety and that you had felt reassured by the test results (temporarily), which enabled you to relax enough to eat.

    I would try and believe your doctor.

    Yeah usually as soon as I get an all clear, I'm back to normal. But I can't shake this. I genuinely feel unwell like something is really wrong.

    I woke up today feeling lightheaded and dizzy. TMI but Went to the toilet and all I passed was a bit of mucus. Never happened to me before.

    I've lost 4lbs this week. I'm guessing cos of the lack of food but it's still worrying

    Hi, itís most likely that your anxiety has got you in such a frenzy itís affected your appetite. Easy for me to say I know.

    Iím currently having issues similar to you, consumed with worry about c. Itís really hard when you feel off physically and then get on Google and it all seems to match.

    I have read a lot about the strong link between anxiety and stomach problems. I also think that when you worry your physical symptoms are heightened. I know Ive found that myself in the past. It doesnít stop me worrying, sadly, so I know how you feel.

    Do you feel you can talk to your doctor about it?
