  1. unfortunately, i tested negative for h. plyori. i guess its not the age issue, as to how i've treated my body. depression, junk food addiction, i even have an infected molar/root canal which thanks to the netflix documentary has informed me is connected to the pan. there are too many coincidences and i dont know how to cope
  2. posting back here for an update. i'm still pretty concerned about this and even though some symptoms(heaviness after eating, fullness in my esophagus) have gone away, i'm still burping all day long. i now have what feels like a swollen lymp node in my right armpit so that worries me. i did go for a pan can marker test. it's not meant to be a screening but i paid for the test on my own and it came back not elevated. I have an mri with contrast this tuesday, all i can do is hope for the best. These symptoms have been going on for the better part of 2 months now.
  3. hi, my concern with the mri was that i t was a "screening" mri. it was only 15 mins, unlike the diagnostic mri's that last 30-60 mins. this was done private clinic and not the hospital. my friend however went in for an abdominal mri and said they spent less than 10 mins and he was done..so i dont know
  4. hey Leah how did you cervical mri go ?
  5. i'm still very afraid due to i dont know what else this could be and since i started having pain in my left side i freaked out and thought it was pc. i then told myself not freak out and couple of months later i now have these gastro issues. my other fear comes into play after watching the netlix doc about root canals and how i have an infected root canal that is "meridian" linked to my pancreas. seems like too many coincidences. if the slim chance this is anxiety/stress related do you mind telling me what symptoms you had and what you took ? 2 times i've had 2 horrible health anxiety bouts...the fact i could never find out at the time what caused those symptoms created a bigger mess for me for years.
  6. i actually requested the test. my fear of times things have been missed and the fact my symptoms are still there.
  7. hi it's been more than a month and my fear of p.c is still very real. my mri results came back. i have simple liver cysts on my liver, this concerns me into thinking something has metastasized but notthing showed on my pancreas. im worried something might have been missed because it was a very basic screening mri test and not a diagnostic test with contrast dye. i've just heard many ppl that had ct scans and it was missed and this worries me. i had the liver test functions re-done and they came back normal again. i'm still burping all the time and having gas at night and stomach noises. i fear this is pc causing issues with my stomach acid. my dr doesnt think it is pc but the fear of something being missed is bothering me. i'm suppose to go for a ca-19?(pan can tumor marker test) on wednesday. ettting my anxiety has been really bad since then, night sweats(have had these for 10+ years), constant depression. i just started taking ativan and feel like im getting side effects from that.
  8. thank you, i hope so too.ive been stressed and had this real weird burping for the last few weeks and i'm terrified as it keeps showing up as potential symptoms. hi, when i had my als scare it was 5 years ago. i had the emg done 2 years ago, it was fine.
  9. i just had the mri done last night, and i'm not feeling optimistic because so many of my symptoms are the same as p.c. i thought health anxiety would be the cause of all this
  10. i've had health anxiety related bouts in the past that were pretty serious, one for Hiv and the other for Als. Both times i had frightening symptoms and for the ALS(5 years after symptoms), im still twitching. I have a food addiction to sugar foods and am obese. I started to have weird dull pain in my left side of my stomach a few months ago and after stressful december i noticed my stomach is making noises and i'm burping a lot. unfortunetly, now i'm starting to notice my stool is pale in color. i've had blood work done to test enzymes, lipase, wbc, c reactive, a1c which have all come back normal but would need an mri to confirm if anything is there. my doctor doesnt feel like its of conern and i do have an mri booked tomorrow(privately). im very frightened as i'm still fairly young (36) and thought i was on the verge of turning my life around when this happened. has anyone had experience with this, i could use some help right now. thanks
