  1. Past hour
  2. I had this same worry a few weeks ago when I ran right into a cart at work and gave myself a pretty good goose egg. From what I know concussions are far more common than aneurysms caused by head trauma, so if the hit to the head didn’t cause even a mild concussion or any symptoms afterward (besides soreness or a mild headache) chances of that happening are close to none. They also most commonly happen within the first 24 hours of the incident so if nothings happened yet, highly unlikely anything will.
  3. For the past few days I’ve been having stomach pain as soon I as start eating and then for about an hour afterwords. This is the third occasion this has happened. I’ll go a few days with having stomach pain and then it will go away. It happens every few months now. I’ve looked online and Haven’t found much. Coincidentally I’ve read that it can be cause by a blocked blood vessel which has been what I’ve been worrying about lately so that’s worrisome. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

  5. I can't fly either we live in Texas so we take trips to Florida since it's not too too far.. but I'd love to go to Maine one day, my husband said not driving there lol. I've just started working with my therapist on this fear. I'm kind of surprised you have this fear too Bec you are so level headed and rational. What is it that makes you anxious? Mine is not being or think I'm in control and I can't see in front of me.. like a windshield.

    My co-worker had in situ Melanoma on her cheek and she had it removed by a Moh's surgeon around 7-8 years ago and she is fine with no ill effects.
  7. Your head is stronger then you think, so odds are it would take a pretty hard hit to cause any issues. Many boxers, MMA and football players take hits to the head many times harder then you got hit and they don't have any aneurysm issues.
  8. True. I am not scared that I have a ruptured aneurysm right NOW, but that the hit against my head caused an aneurysm (not ruptured yet). I know it is irrational and people hit their head all the time but still it is hard to reassure myself.
  9. I clear my throat often and have very thick mucus. I had a Laryngoscopy and EGD and nothing was found.
  10. If you had a ruptured aneurysm, then you would be in the ER and not typing a post on this site.
  11. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I would call your physician about the blood, even though the odds of it being serious are remote.
  12. Something that may help as well is to take a bath in warm epsom salt water. It will relax your muscles, and it will help your hemorrhoid and fissures. Epsom salt has a lot of health benefits.
  13. Yes, anal fissures and hemorrhoids can bleed even if your stool is soft, they’re very easily irritated. It’s especially more likely to bleed with diarrhea as it’s very irritating. If you are under a lot of stress, it could also be causing you to strain, and you don’t even realize it. Your entire body tenses up when under stress, including your bowels. Eat foods that are easy on your stomach and digestive tract for awhile, and see if it helps. I’m sure that you are alright, and I’m also sorry for your loss. I am sending love and prayers your way
  14. I’m no expert but I always thought an aneurysm comes on suddenly. Not exactly sure but if your doc said not to worry I’d take comfort in that. Allergies and stress can cause the symptoms you’re describing.
  15. Hey guys. It’s been awhile since I’ve actually been anxious about my health but I’m having an issue. I know I have an internal hemorrhoid and have had a fissure that comes and goes. I also have IBS. My fissure was never really painful and neither is my hemmy. A couple times last week I felt a scratch when I pooped and there was some blood on the TP. I didn’t pay it any mind since I felt a scratch and the BM was kind of hard but pretty much normal. Well this morning I went and the stool wasn’t hard but blood was in the toilet bowl and on the tissue. Then, after lunch I had a loose BM and there was blood again in the bowl and on the tissue. My question is can a fissure or hemmy cause blood in the bowl even if you have a soft BM or diarrhea? Weird thing is I’m not worried this is cancer because I had a clean colonoscopy about five or six years ago, but my anxiety is saying it could be colitis! I’m under a bit of stress and upset already because tomorrow will be one year since my dad passed away, and now the blood in the bowl this morning and one episode of diarrhea with blood has me in a bit of a spiral. So any help is much appreciated!
  16. Yep! I have no doubt that it'll be thoroughly enjoyed, and it's much needed! We'll be doing plenty of fun stuff, and also visiting with one of my uncles for a day. I can't do air travel at all. That's why we're driving the 10hrs rather than flying. 😂
  17. Hi everyone, For about a year now my fear of heart problems has been replaced by a fear of aneurysms 🥴. Here is why: I often hear a weird pulsing in my ear (my doctor says it is tinnitus but I only hear it when I run, drink coffee etc. so I think it is related to my blood pressure). I'm also dizzy daily and feel a pressure in my head and 'behind' my nose very often. My doctor says it is nothing, but he didn't do any tests so I still worry. Has anyone here experienced similar symptoms maybe? Since yesterday I have created a new reason to worry about an aneurysm. My girlfriend accidentally hit me on the side of my head with her elbow. It was pretty hard and it really hurts today. I can feel that there is an artery/vein right underneath the sore spot, so I am scared something is damaged now and I have developed an aneurysm that is about to burst. I don't want to go to the doctor because they don't take me seriously anymore (can't blame them), but I am pretty worried/scared about it. Does anyone have any wise words? Thank you!
  18. Hi, I have panic disorder for some time (I am taking meds) , but today a very weird thing happened to me. I was very stressed, because I was supposed to work at shopping mall (yeah I know, uncommon places, crowds of people.. my bad). And I have those same symptoms before panic attack as always - I was sweating, I felt dizzy and so on, but then something very strange happened - my arms started burning, it was like someone gave me hot coal on my top back. I was literally burning, I just wanted to know I had same symptom of anxiety as you. I was glad, when I read your post, because i know, that I am not alone. Is there anyone else who has feeling like there is a flame on their body parts? (before or during panic attack)
  19. I don’t think so. Everything I’ve read said they would take a sample of discharge from the vagina and look for bacteria under a microscope.
  20. Would BV reflect in urinalysis ?
  21. There is such a thing as bacterial vaginosis and it has similar symptoms to a yeast infection I think. If you are taking antibiotics I highly suggest you take a probiotic at the same time. This will help keep the good bacteria in your system. I would mention the itching to the doc that prescribed the antibiotics because there might be a cream that can help. BV is different from yeast and there is different treatment.

    I also had a basal cell removed from my back with Mohs surgery and the procedure itself and recovery were very easy...I also go for 6 month check ups and I agree with you I think it is good to be a little paranoid.
  23. I get that way before vacation as well, even though the vacation usually calms me down since there’s no real responsibilities other than to have a good time. But air travel makes me nervous. We are going on a trip next week and the preparation part can also be nerve wracking since nobody in my family likes to pack more than 3hrs before we leave and I’m left to make sure all the meds, sunscreen, etc...gets packed. But I know we will have a good time and come back refreshed.
  24. I just took them right now . I've had the itch before being prescribed with antibiotics .
  25. Last time I was on an antibiotic I got an infection. When you kill off all the good bacteria along with the bad the yeast can take over. I used over the counter 3-day Monistat and it cleared it up.
  26. Are you taking an antibiotic? Sometimes they can cause a yeast infection. I’ve had this from soaps. I always just use soap for sensitive skin .

    I had basal cell carcinoma back in 2009 on the upper right part of my nose. It was shiny and it did not look right, so I called my dermatologist and made an appointment. He is one of the few dermatologists who can see you within a week or so. He could never play poker as when he looked at the spot, you could see his face contort and I knew it was bad news. He said OK, lets biopsy it and I will let you know. He called me in a week or so and said it was basal cell carcinoma and told me to call a Moh's surgeon to have it removed. I called the Moh's surgeon and got an appointment pretty quickly. He had all my records and when I came in he talked to me a bit and I went back for the surgery in his office. He put a blood pressure monitor on me and got me ready. He injected a numbing agent in my nose and the surgery began. I can't remember how long it took. He was very friendly and I remember him telling me during the surgery as I was up the whole time sitting in a special chair, that he was now taking out the tumor and it was deeper then it appeared, so he went back in and got the rest of it. After the surgery, I went home with a big bandage on my nose, with some stitches. I went back in a few weeks to have the stitches removed and he said all looked OK and there was a 99% chance it would not come back and so far it has not. While I was there I had him look at a few other moles/spots and he said all looked OK. I apologized to him for seeming paranoid and what he then said to me I will never forget. He said you are not being paranoid at all, in fact being a little paranoid may be good as it may one day save your life. I go for 6 month checkups.
