    What is the benefit to going private? Getting it done sooner? From what I understand it’s much more expensive to go that route. Do you feel that if your doctor was that concerned he would fast track your endoscopy?

    All of your symptoms can be caused by high levels of anxiety as well. Based on the variety of your symptoms, it seems to me that it’s more anxiety driven than illness driven, but I’m not a doctor so can’t say for sure. Can you do anything to try and reduce your anxiety levels while you’re waiting for your appointment? It’s worth a try and doesn’t cost you anything.

    Do you find that you’re constantly thinking about your symptoms all day? Or scanning yourself throughout the day to see how you’re feeling, if you’re experiencing any new symptoms? I ask these things because I’ve been there myself. And as long as you allow yourself to obsess over symptoms, especially digestive symptoms, you’ll continue to have these issues. I understand you’re genuinely worried and I don’t at all mean to make light of your upcoming tests or say what you’re dealing with is only anxiety. But, while you wait for tests, try to manage the anxiety. There are some great CBT tools on this forum. They’re free, and they really did help me. No, they won’t help everyone, but you won’t know unless you try.
