  1. ITCHING ALL OVER! Pancreatic Cancer?

    My stomach started itching so bad last night and I figured it was nothing but then this morning it started itching bad again! Then my fingers and leg started itching. My stomach has been slightly upset, near my pancreas, and I can't help but think that this is pancreatic cancer. I know it's highly uncommon for a 24 year old but it's still possible. I'm stressing out right now because I'm moving from Mexico next week back to the US for a while, and I've been crying almost non stop lol is this stress or pc?
  2. Colon Cancer???

    It's almost sickening that I'm back to this stupid anxiety. I had a colon cancer fear back in 2015 but I haven't struggled with it much since. However these past few days it's come back to haunt me. Basically here's what's going on: pains. I'm having pains that are kind of dull but crampy in the bottom left of my stomach. Then I have barely pooped! I think the last time I pooped was 2 days ago and it was a rough one....ya know? (sorry TMI). Now I'll be honest and say that my diet is crap. I basically live off of red meat, cheese, and Coca-Cola with an occasional fruit every now and then. (Like last night I had 3 apples....3 and I still haven't pooped.) I've been pretty gassy lately and have been taking quite a few TUMS but other than that I have no symptoms. But man.....these cramps and the fact that I haven't pooped....Well, I read enough about colon cancer back in 2015 to know these are symptoms. But I'm only 24. I'm scared. I knew a kid from back home who had colon cancer at 27 and another friend who had it at 30. With my diet in red meat all I can think of 'Oh great, you're next.' Any advice?
  3. BOTULISM FEAR.....Help!

    Well at first I thought it was anxiety but it just kept getting worse as the day went on. Right now I can still feel the tingles but it is not awful. Maybe because I'm at work and need to pay attention to my students. But I'm just so concerned. My eyesight is off but that happens with my sinus headaches so I don't know if it's because of the headaches or if it has to do with botulism. I know I'm probably freaking myself out but I'm just so concerned. I just wonder if maybe this is all from botulism and if I'm going to have time to make it to a hospital. I keep trying to pick things up and dropping them too. Like I spilled my water and dropped my sunglasses on the floor. Today I held a baby for a long time and had no problem with that but now I'm like dropping everything. I need to sleep lol
  4. BOTULISM FEAR.....Help!

    Well I was doing okay with everything until today. I woke up and both of my hands had pins and needles in them and I think that's a sign of paralysis. It's lasted all day long and now it's in my feet. I had some caffeine earlier and I think that's caused my anxiety to go up but I'm really freaking out. I just want to go home from work, cry, and sleep but I have to work. I feel like i'm gonna faint. I'm so scared and freaked out. This is a terrible way to end my Friday and I don't live with anyone so all I can think is I'm gonna go home and die and no one will ever know! My boyfriend won't find me till he comes home from his business trip and there I'll be.....dead in my bed. I'm trying to relax but it's hard because I feel this tingling and then I also have a sinus headache. I'm just so freaked out. I had stopped believing I had botulism until today and now I'm freaking out. This is SO I run to the hospital or no?
  5. BOTULISM FEAR.....Help!

    So I did the STUPIDEST thing in the world. I went to the store for some nachos and the cheese had just been brought out and wasn't heated yet. The lady at the counter put some in a container and heated it for 30 seconds. I didn't think anything of it and ate my nachos but then I just remembered that story of the girl who died from eating nacho cheese with botulism. At first I thought I was overreacting but then looked online and realized that botulism is only cooked out of food if it's boiled or cooked for more than 10 minutes.....mine was 30 seconds! I'm basically planning my funeral and I'm so scared. I read that fatality rates are 60% in undeveloped countries and I currently live in Mexico (though I am a US citizen). Can someone help please????
  6. So back on like September 7 I had anal sex and the guy's condom broke.....he came inside of me and for a week I freaked out because I was fertile. Well then my period ended up coming a week early. A WEEK EARLY! That's never happened before. So now it's been almost 3 weeks since the anal sex and about a week since my period started (it's finished now) but today I noticed that I'm gaining weight, my nipples are dark, and I'm peeing a lot. I can't be pregnant after a period, right?!?! I'm not having sex anymore and haven't had any sexual activity since September 7 and when I got my period I calmed down but then I started thinking.....maybe it's possible? I didn't have sex ed in school y'all.......please help a girl out.
  7. Toxic Shock??? Ladies?

    Thank you so much for your response BeeDot! It really helped! I'm still a little concerned but I'm guessing that maybe it's because I'm just exhausted from the week I've had. I need to relax, do some deep breathing, and just try and put this toxic shock out of my mind. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who's used TP. When I mentioned it to my friend she was disgusted but I was like.....hey! What's a poor American girl living in Mexico to do? Lol Thanks for the reply!
  8. Toxic Shock??? Ladies?

    Hey guys! I've been trying to keep of this site ever since I posted last week because sometimes it can cause my anxiety to heighten. But now I'm back because, well first, thankfully I'm not pregnant and my period started 7 days early. I wasn't expecting this at all and I literally am too poor right now to buy pads (I make pesos y''s a rough time lol) so I've been using toilet paper instead of pads. Honestly it hasn't been too bad. I just change the toilet paper every 2 hours. But it normally goes up a little into my vagina and now i'm concerned that maybe some toilet paper got stuck inside and I'm going to die of toxic shock. My parents are friends with a couple who's daughter died of toxic shock from a tampon. I've never worried about it before because I use pads and not tampons but now I'm a little concerned. I tried to make sure that my vagina was 'clean' but I cleaned it with toilet paper so I guess that wouldn't bee too effective. Any thoughts on this? I'm refusing to look things up on Dr. Google....big no no for this girl. So I'm coming to y'all. I started worrying about it about an hour ago when I got really lightheaded and got a headache......
  9. This past week I have really been suffering with a lot of stomach problems, specifically in my lower abdomen. It feels all crampy and gross and I've been having a lot of gas and I've gone to the restroom way more times than I can count. Last night I just sat on the toilet and cried as I just kept going to the bathroom with terrible stomach cramps. It first started on Sunday when I was out with some friends and had to leave because my stomach randomly started hurting and I felt like I was about to explode. I got home and basically did explode and my stomach and bowels have just gone down hill ever since. I have a terrible diet, just so you know. The other day I even went the whole day without eating and when I do eat it's mostly meat, tortillas, and Coca-Cola. I'm poor y'all lol. But my point is I have no idea what this awful stuff is. It's been like this for over a week now and is just getting worse. I've been dealing with a pregnancy scare due to anal sex that I had not this past Thursday but the Thursday before where his condom broke and he came inside me. Ever since I've been freaked out that I'm pregnant and I read that pregnancy symptoms in the first week are mostly bowel related due to the changes your body is experiecning.....I don't know.....what do you guys think? I also used to suffer from IBS really bad about a year ago but only have had random episodes in the past few months, nothing this crazy or this uncomfortable. I mean even as I'm typing this my whole stomach feels gross and gassy and it burns. By my liver, by my actual stomach, down below, everywhere! I have been nervous a lot this past week but I've been much more anxious before and this is one of the worst cases.....any advice?
  10. Pregnancy Scare

    Thank you for your response DoxieMoxie. Do not worry. I didn't think you were harsh. Sometimes we just have our own opinions and there's nothing wrong with that. I agree that the way things have been going STD's are possible. I've definitely gone through my scare of them. But in all honesty this past time I used a condom.....and the condom broke. He didn't even tell me it broke until he had already cum and that's why I'm freaked out about pregnancy. I used to have unprotected anal with my ex but he never came inside me so I never worried about it except for the one time we almost had vaginal sex. The problem is that I am young, I DID use a condom, and yet here I am again..... I'm quite frustrated with myself for being so sexually driven but I can't think of anything else to do except for try and control my sexual urges. I know that all you ladies mean well in saying to go on birth control but ever since my doctor told me that after I was offered birth control from a Women's Care doctor I've decided to never take it because I do want children someday. It's just all so confusing to say the least haha
  11. Pregnancy Scare

    My plans for next month? Well I'm not planning on having sex again for a while. I mean not to sound dramatic but I just can't take any more of this. I actually broke up with my boyfriend. I'm going on a date with a guy this weekend but I refuse to do anything sexual. I guess just try and stay abstinent and if anything happens then try and find a morning after pill here in Mexico. I mean, I know that you all think my doctor is crazy because of what she said about birth control but she's a doctor and I don't mean to sound rude but I don't know anybody on this site who's a doctor, does that make sense? It's like when we're experiencing symptoms and we think it's cancer or something like that and our doctor tells us that it's not then we try and tell each other 'LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR!' but when my doctor says something that people disagree with it's like 'FIND A NEW DOCTOR!' lol it's kind of strange to be honest. She's actually not even my doctor anymore. Since I moved to Mexico last year I don't have a doctor. So there's not much i can do about that anyway. I'm just really suffering from bad symptoms today. My lower abdomen is all crampy and I've gone to the bathroom almost like 5 or 6 times in the last two days. I'm very uncomfortable and gassy. It's all so scary. I thank all of you ladies for your advice. I really don't know what I would do without y'all.
  12. Pregnancy Scare

    Okay I get that I need a new form of birth control......I completely agree. But right now all I know is that I'm still freaking out about the possibility of pregnancy.....yes, even from anal sex. I've been having some weird things happen to me in the last week. Yes, it has officially been 1 week since it happened. I've been pooping almost constantly. And I always feel like I have to poop's odd. And then today I started getting cramps down below in my woman area, specifically on the right side. I'm just so freaked out because I read that you don't get those cramps from PMS unless it's like 2 days before your period and I still have 11 days.....ugh.
  13. Can Back Pain Be Anxiety Related?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm still quite concerned because I've been stretching but still no relief. It does feel a little better than yesterday but the only thing I did differently was sleep on my back. But it still hurts and the pain is unfortunately still there. It comes randomly but especially when I'm sitting down and leaning forward. My breast hurts and still has the cyst on it that showed up last I'm freaking out about breast cancer still since that's the place where my friend discovered her cancer but I know that I may just be overreacting. But the pain is like directly in the middle on my back. It hurts when I'm not moving it and when I'm moving it. Feels like bone but how am I to know, ya know?
  14. Can Back Pain Be Anxiety Related?

    The past like, I don't know, maybe 3 days I've really been having quite a bit of upper and middle back pain. Can this be anxiety related? I've been nervous lately do to a pregnancy scare and also an infected cyst on my breast. Of course all I can think about it breast cancer that has spread to my bones. It happened to my aunt and also a close friend who was only 29. I'm 24. It's more of an aching pain than a stabbing pain and from what I can tell (though I haven't really tested it out) it goes away when I'm laying down. I'm going to have to wait to test that out when I get home tonight. I work a crazy schedule so my sleeping schedule is all messed up. I enjoy sleeping on my stomach but I don't' do it every night. I've been really exhausted lately but I just figured it was because of my I'm not so sure. I don't know guys.....anyone else had something like this?
  15. Pregnancy Scare

    Do you think I should try the Vitamin C miscarriage thing? I've read some places that it's worked and others that it hasn't......not sure if any of you have heard of anything like that.
