  1. No stretching. I went to the doctor today. They don't think it's muscle as they can't locate a tender spot. Thinking it might be spine related. Had an X-ray, but still waiting nervously on the results.
  2. Going to see the doctor today. I actually was functioning pretty well yesterday. I unloaded to trailers of mulch, chased the boys around (although I could feel some tenderness when we were playing soccer in the yard). Went to bed and felt pretty good. Got a full nights sleep, but woke up this morning in pain again. Got up and moving around (soaked in the hot tub) and it's a little better. Oddly enough, the pain feels like it's on the other side of my spine more so today. It's always in the center-ish, but most days it feels more sore on my right side. This morning it's on my left.
  3. So about 3-4 weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with pain and soreness that felt like a pulled muscle right between my shoulder blades. It was way worse lying on my side and it got to the point I had to get up and take some ibuprofen. It helped a little and I got some sleep, but it bothered me for almost a week and was always worse at night. Then it went away. Sunday night, I was awoken again with the same pain, and it's a little worse than last time. It doesn't really seem to respond to Ibuprofen as well as Tylenol. There's not lumps, or tender spots, but it just feels like a really bad strain. However, I also woke up last night all sweaty, and I've just felt "off" since this started a few days ago. Typing this out sounds like a routine muscle strain, but the fact that pain meds don't help much, and it's way worse lying down has me wondering if it might be a tumor somewhere. I'm trying to talk myself off the ledge so to speak, but it's not improving 3.5 days later.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. Thanks. That does make me feel a little better. Quick question. Can lower back pain transit to the groin/testicle area?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I'm going to see my GP today. Hopefully I get some answers.
  10. 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.
  11. 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).
  12. 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.
