  1. Hi Mike, no i did not. But then again, im in Europe so we might have different names/products. My bowel/intestines still making rumbling noises. So far had blood checks, abdominal ultrasound and was all clear. Cannot say i am not worried… did colonoscopy 5 years ago, so the doctor less worried on that front. its like a month i am with this noises and loose/ floating stools. If its nothing serious i would really like some good product to try. Everyone saying probiotics are very good, but didn’t had much success with the 2 kinds i tried.
  2. Good to see you Holls ! I was wondering how are you doing since we spoke last some 5 years ago. Kinda funny we came back around the same time...
  3. Thanks ! I just wonder if to keep take it till i get used to it or to stop…
  4. Thats exactly the cause. You thinking and monitoring natural processes which your body used to do automatically since you were at the age of 1 day old. This symptom is very common here as well…
  5. Yes i had it years ago when i was in super stress times. Its the hyper awareness to every thing plus stressing this muscles when you are not even aware.
  6. Anyone know if those probiotics pills should make me super gassy ? I mean really gassy and noisy belly from these gasses. I never took probiotics before in my life.
  7. Thank you for your response ! yes i am trying now all kind of probiotics(never had any before…) maybe as i turned 38 my body has different needs ?
  8. Hi guys, So after good 5 years ( in terms of HA...) looks like i am back in the cycle 😞 ..... 5 years ago i was in in every cycle you can imagine. This time i am in the stomach/colon fear again. The trigger was last week. I started to have diarrhea and lose stool. My gut keeps on making the growling sounds and I am pretty much very gassy. If it would pass in a day or 2 i guess i would not pay attention, the fact it went longer put my anxiety back up and as i know HA, i am pretty sure it only making symptoms worse. Anyone else suffering from noisy guts and lots of gas movement ?
  9. I now fully admit i have full scale health anxiety as it is written in the book. Not believing doctors,tests etc... I am currently stuck on liver cirrhosis as i used to be quite a heavy drinker for some 5 years. The only reason (i think) why i am having hard time to except the clear tests results ( Physical. Blood works, ultrasound, colonoscopy) is i was reading online ( big mistake i know i know) that people had it even with all of those tests came back clear... So now i am in a real deep hole... what to do ? how to accept the result of the tests ? If it wasnt for some annoying constants symptoms( some pain in the upper part, back pain, neck pain, dry mouth, general abdominal discomfort and the palms of my hands are sometimes getting red even i think they were always like that since i was a child) it would have been much easier, but it looks as they are here to stay so then again the loop of the tests must have missed it... I really dont want to go on medications, its not stopping from things like going out, flying, working etc... but it is effecting my lifestyle and it is taking my brain most of the day and i cant help but visiting liver diseases forum in searching for more reassurances.
  10. Apparently internal hemorrhoids are more common then we think... i didn't know i had till my colonoscopy.
  11. Thank a lot Holls ! As usual you are very helpful ! Really trying to but from time to time falling again to this.
  12. So after numerous C****'s, als, cirrhosis and maybe few others thing its time to go back unfortunately I think its mostly my neck muscles casuing me strange lump feeling and pain when i touch the left side and sometimes the right side of the throat. i can eat and drink fine but most of times i am worried about something bad going in my throat... i am just so tired of this...
  13. Its good to get checked and its even better to come out after them feeling great once you know you are all good. Before my colonoscopy i was super stress since i was sure they will find something horrible. After they found nothing its the best feeling ever. Good luck and iam positive it will be good.
  14. Been there... they say you would have to drink HUGE amounts of alcohol for about 15 to 20 years to have cirrhosis. By the way they found lately that early cirrhosis is reversible by just dealing with the cause. In our case, stop drinking.
  15. I had much worse things beacuse of anxiety... i was 99% sure i got colon C. Did colonoscopy, not even a polyp...at your age i highly dont think its an option... its for a reason they recommended doing the check once you are 50.
  16. What a great post ! als fear is strong and lots of us here got it. the thing with that is that there is no one check that will tell you yes or no. So thats why after you making all checks that tells you that you are fine ( for example C**** fears...) you get stuck with als. i am as well with it and constanly testing myself. I just wish that in a month or two i will accept the best test there is with als- the time test.
  17. Thank you all guys ! I finally get the full scale of anxiety. Before the checks i was sure that once all my checks will come back ok ill be over it in a sec... i wounder if they wouldent find even the cysts how would i react... thank you all again guys ! You really are great !
  18. Thank you bin. I think that at this point seeking pro help will be the only thing there is for me. P.S - thank for being here even after you decided to move on. Your help for others is equal to life saving ! Thank you again !
  19. Thanks ! I did a mistake and googled. and now i saw that some people saying you can have a normal ultrasound and blood tests but still have a serious thing like cirrhosis... Cant see how i am getting out of this cycle... Dont know what to do anymore.
  20. So i did an ultrasound today all is good except few cysts of up to 1.4 cm... the staff keep saying ita quite common and not dangerous but on the other side they said i should keep this under checks. If its nothing why it needs to be under checks ? I saw wanted to move on today but dosnt look like its gonna happen... sad...
  21. Thank you guys ! Its a big relief ! On sunday liver and and entire belly ultrasound and thats it ! Anxiety is a beast !
  22. Holls, you helped me so much with that iam not sure i can give you any advice I think that in your case you passed the best test there is with a**, the time test !
  23. Yhh i just remember getting the niddle in my arm and then waking up just to hear: "everything is good". Priceless.
  24. Not even one polyp ! Blood from time to time was from little internal hemorrhoids. Just thinking about the months i spent on being sure its colon C....
