Looks like my worst fears are materialising

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone. Went to doc as I had to re test for some blood in urine and some level of anemia.

Blood is still in urine, same mount, but doc asked for an ESR test which came up to 120.

So now I am being referred to a urologist and a general physician for more tests to see what's casing the high ESR.

I'm a mess and think this will be the beginning of the end.

I'm in a very bad place, trying to stay sane. Doc told me not to worry......I don't know how. 

It's freaking me out as I have no big pains, only the usual hypochondria aches.

Part of that may be the anemia.  Really, it's just a path to find for health.  Anemia isn't all that rare.  If he was worried, you wouldn't be typing; you would be in the hospital connected to machines.  Anemia just means you have a deficiency somewhere and the doctor is trying to find out where it is so he can restore that area.

I'm freaking out, I have no pain anywhere, I'm not fatigued I feel just fine.  I have only been very stressed since Dec 21, with lack of sleep, high hypochondria and what seems to me depression, also very low appetite and nausea due to reflux and constant worries.

Tomorrow, I'm going back to doc maybe I can get some valium until I get to the first specialist which will be end of next week.

You shouldn't be freaking out.  Anemia means you are just deficient in something and the doctor is trying to figure it out.

The rest you are putting on yourself.  The hypochondria is fueling the anxiety, whic is the rest of what you are dealing with.

Remember, how you think determines how you feel.

Went to doctor as I am super anxious and asked for some calming pills and I was given sedoxil.

He explained to me that the anemia could be from me loosing blood internally so they wanted to check from where.

I am super freaked out.

The unknown will do that.   Remember that if it was totally urgent, you'd be in the hospital right now.  

If it was in the urine, think backwards to the urethra, and the kidneys.  Kidney stones can cause it, which would lead to pain where they would have to blow them up like a video game. 

That's speculation.  If you were going to go, he would have told you so.

I think you are going to live through this :).

Thanks for your kind words @Ironman.

AS I said, I have no major pains, I am not loosing weight, and I feel quite ok, but I still think that there is something extremely wrong with me, and I need to get a coffin.

Not a coffin, just a comfortable to bed to RELAX in.  You're fine main system wise, you just have a service engine soon alert.  The doctors would be able to point it out pretty quick.  You're not going to die :).
