Discussion of Phobias. A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object (spiders, snakes, etc) or situation (crowds, open spaces, etc). Accompanying this fear is a strong desire to avoid the object or situation.
The thing to do is …. wait for any more news. There isn't anything you can do other than make concrete plans for any outcome you can think of. That's all you can do. The rest is up to the doctor's expertise.
In the last few days, I started to notice there might be something wrong with my appetite. I would be eating and then it would all of a sudden "shut off" out of nowhere. At first I thought it was because I was eating rice, and I was overeating it to the point where it was deceptive how much I was eating. But then it happened again without rice.
Then yesterday, after a bowel movement, I was ready to eat dinner...I noticed I had no appetite after just eating small amounts.
I have mild constipation as of now, but I've never really had this kind of appetite loss from constipation in the past.
And before this period, I was noticing that I was having cramps after bowel movements. I was thinking it was gas pains, but I never really ended up passing gas to accompany those pains.
And then I was also contemplating things and was thinking I can't remember the last time I was really hungry. I've had urges to eat, but not the starving/craving like I used to have several years ago on back.
Combine this with the abdominal asymmetry, and I don't see how it's not bowel cancer.
What I don't understand is how I noticed this asymmetry three years ago and I'm still alive.
Hi. New here. 2 months ago I had a bug bite behind neck and after that, my posterior cervical node swelled... (painless but not movable). 4 weeks went by and I daily checked on it many times a day to see if it was shrinking but no, so I had an ultrasound which showed a reactive bit enlarged cervical node (0.8cm), benign features. Still, I couldn't stop touching it many times during every single day and it's been 8 weeks now and it's still there. Please I really need help, can poking on it make it remain swollen for so long? Anyone experienced this? I'm so scared... TIA
But now you're off them, over time you will gradually feel better and better. It's extremely tough a first, but you need to have courage, and above all, patience. Just hang on while your GABA receptors rebalance themselves.
