  1. Been having throat/chest troubles for 3 months. Constantly have an urge to cough. I had a bad cold 12 weeks ago and when it went away the coughing lingered. Seemed like it was getting better but now it’s back and it’s freaking me out. Saw my GP 3 weeks ago and he didn’t seem concerned. I can’t stop thinking that something sinister is going on. If I take a deep breath I cough. Thought maybe it was heartburn but it doesn’t bother me when I sleep. The thought of something wrong is consuming me. This can’t be normal. Please Help Rugger
  2. Unfortunately I’ve had a few cavities filled in the last few years. Having sensitivity afterward is totally normal. I had one a few years ago that remained sensitive for about 6 weeks! Not fun but it does go away, just give it some time. You’re all good! rugger
  3. I wish I had allergies as an excuse, but I live in blooming trees yet. Just a dry cough and some chest pain. I realize I don’t have a lot of lung cancer symptoms but I have a couple and that’s all it takes for me to think what if? Going to Jamaica on Thursday but I’m not excited, not sure what to do I’m trying to suck it up. rugger
  4. I have had an annoying cough for 5 weeks now. Started out as a cold with runny nose and coughing up phlegm for about 10 days. Runny nose has stopped and so has the phlegm but I can’t kick this dry cough. I realize coughs can last a while but 5 weeks? Started to have slight pain in chest and back last few days. I can exercise fine as I ran for 40 minutes yesterday with no cough, but when I stopped the cough started. Cough drops help, think I’m addicted to them. Supposed to be heading to Jamaica next week for my 50th but I’m freaked out as I’m thinking I have lung cancer. What else is new! It’s all I’ve been thinking about lately. Please help me get off “the cliff”. Not excited about trip anymore. Rugger
  5. All is good. I have a kidney stone. Just have to wait for it to pass...not looking forward to that!!! A lot better than what I thought it might be. Thanks for the support it really helped! Rugger
  6. Sorry, also have mid to upper back pain on right side. He probably also sent me to shut me up because I’m not all there these days! rugger
  7. I’ve had nausea and upper ab aches for a few weeks. Blood work was fine, just a precaution I think. I drink on weekends at get togethers but not enough to cause cirrhosis issues. That’s why I’m anxious. rugger
  8. Thanks. My mind is still messing me up. I’m finding it hard to believe that it is a coincidence that as she looks at my liver she asks about alcohol consumption. Rugger
  9. Had an ultrasound on my abdomen today. Was going ok until tech is looking around my liver area and then asks if I drink? Why would she ask that? What did she see? I understand questions before the procedure starts...but not when she is looking at something. Of course I’m down a hole! Convinced that something is wrong. I’m tired of this. Please help! Rugger

    Relatively new to site. Is it possible to send responses to a single person. If so how? thanks rugger
  11. I have been terrified lately about pancreatic cancer. My aunt was diagnosed with it last week but I had issues before finding out about her. Bad back, heartburn, some abdominal pain. Went to see doc but he wasn’t too concerned. Had me do blood work. Results came back today. Secretary said I’m all good. Blood tests came back normal...but said my blood sugar was slightly high. Doc is not concerned just said reduce my sugar intake. Of course my mind started to think. Insulin controls blood sugar, which is produced by pancreas...which equals pancreatic issues. So good results is now freaking me out. Not sure I’ll ever get past this stuff. Spiralling again!!!! Rugger
  12. Thanks Holls! I appreciate your time and thoughts. rugger
  13. No the secretary called and said tests were negative. When I hung up I felt like passing out. I need to make an appointment I guess. Just scared. If test was positive medicine fixes it, now I’m thinking something is REALLY wrong. rugger
  14. Was feeling better last night about my 2 weeks of diarrhea issues, I actually thought it was a parasite which made me feel alright because it is easy to treat. Called doctor this morning about stool sample parasite! I almost passed out. I’ve had diarrhea 7 times in the passed 2 days, getting really scared!!!! How can this be anxiety/stress. I’m not stressed out, in fact I’ve felt great for the past 4 months. It makes no sense. I love my wife, family, job etc Been in a fog all day. Has anyone had this much diarrhea for 2 weeks? Really not sure what to do. rugger
