  1. So the symptoms must overlap enough that they wanted you scoped. It makes me very worried with the constant gas I have that it's something else.
  2. So for the past two weeks, I have had pretty uncomfortable/irritating itching in my normal region you get hemorrhoids. It hasn't gotten better, and then itchiness comes and goes. Usually worse in the morning and after going to the bathroom. No blood. I can feel the lump if I try but it seems to be internal. Now, normally I wouldn't worry, but the fact that I also have had terrible for weeks after eating, and a noticeable change in bowel habits (very loose), I'm concerned about colorectal cancer. Thoughts?
  3. Thanks. That does make me feel a little better. Quick question. Can lower back pain transit to the groin/testicle area?
  4. So I've been fighting some off and on gastric issues along with a what felt like hernia (turns out it isn't). Just in the last few weeks I can feel very tiny bumps (I think 2-3), two on the right sight, one just above the pelvic region, one a little higher, and one across on the left side. You really have to feel for them, but they're there, and they're a little sore. The fact there are more than one, really has me worried this truly is cancer now. Has anyone had a similar experience? My GP couldn't feel them, and my wife can kind of, but not really, so they're pretty subtle.
  5. He checked my abdomen and didn't see anything to be alarmed about (even though I can feel a pull or heaviness there. He checked for inguinal hernias (that was uncomfortable) and said there's a 50/50 chance I have the start of one on the right side but it's very small and only noticeable when I cough. I don't think that's my problem. So now I'm back to cancer. I'm sure it's no Pancreatic due to my slow onset of symptoms, but I have definitely have been getting upper middle/right side back pain since this summer, and really hope it's not spine cancer or cancer that has metastasized.
  6. I'm going to see my GP today. Hopefully I get some answers.
  7. So, I've been doing pretty good for a while (I'm a somewhat regular poster of issues). I've been battling lower back pain for a few months (physical therapy, heat, etc.). That's been an on/off success. Anyways, back in October (early), I was working outside with my wife and I felt sort of a odd tugging feeling my lower right abdomen. I didn't think anything of it, and it went away. Then later in the month, I started getting burning/cramping sensations in my upper abdomen. Sometimes not long after eating, sometimes on an empty stomach. It felt a lot like your stomach does the first day or so after the worst of a stomach bug. I figured it was gastritis, and just went about life. Then about a week later, the pulling sensation was back, and now it's more like a dull pain ache. It hurts a bit when I bend over, and better when I'm lying down. My lower back pain is also much worse now (which makes me concerned they're both related).I can feel what I THINK is a tiny lump in my lower abdomen on the right just above the groin. Along with this, I'm having more bouts of the gastritis feelings. Bowel movements are relatively normal. Additionally, I have lost about 5-6lbs in the last week and a half. Appetite is still okay, but eating always has me on edge now that I'm sometimes get these pain afterward. I can't shake the feeling that something is VERY wrong.
  8. I've had at least 10 since 2014 (I have EOE and need scoped to check to see how it's doing). The process is super easy and nothing to worry about. You might have a little sore throat, but nothing serious. I never had any discomfort and I actually have a narrow (and often inflamed esophagus).
  9. Yeah, I just don't get it. I have cramping in my calves off and on, weird sensations and twitches that come and go, etc. I just don't understand what it could be.
  10. So lately I've ad twitching show up in foot (has all but gone away after a few days), my right abdomen (off and on for a few months), and most recently (especially today) in my left pectoral area. I know I should be calm because my EMGs were clean, but why after seemingly never really getting twitching in my life aside from my eyelids occasionally, why am I getting all of these? I feel like the past few days I haven't even been obsessing over my health, either
  11. Ran outside a little today with the kiddo. Leg definitely felt sore and irritated when I was running. Now the back of my knee/leg feels sore. So could be structural, but I find it hard to believe that none of my doctor's would didn't find that if it is truly physical.
  12. Perhaps, but I literally don't remember doing anything to strain it to begin with, but who knows.
  13. Yeah I would think it's physical, but it really concerns me going on over two months of this on and off pain and general tired leg feeling. My EMGs were clean, but I still worry maybe something was missed or it was done too soon.
  14. I was doing good for a week or so (was even away from this site for a while). My heart issue took precedence and I felt like my other symptoms were gone (tingling, leg soreness, etc.). Then yesterday I was mowing and got off and ran around the yard a but with my oldest son. Then that night my right foot actually hurt to walk on. Today my foot and ankle was a little sore and I was up on a table hanging something on the wall and I went to get down and my right thigh got really tight and sore again (haven't felt that in weeks). Ever since my right foot has felt like a burn and pain. I also have a twitch going on on my top foot still. Tonight it's twitching right by my ankle bone. I know pain and ALS don't go hand in hand, but what the heck is this?? I also have been experiencing random slight cramps in both calves for about two weeks.
  15. I guess I could post an update. After seeing my neurologist 2 weeks ago he didn't really seem to be concerned however he did want me to wear a holter monitor to check for the reasoning behind my random skipped beats that he discovered during my exam. the office called yesterday and I can only speak to a nurse and she just said my results were "borderline." I literally have no idea what that means but the results are being sent to my GP so I will wait until they have something to say about it. As for the tingles they have subsided substantially however the last two days I have a new twitch on the top of my right foot. Never got a switch there before so of course now my mind wanders.
