Iv been worrying myself sick over my fear of having an aneurysm in my tummy. I do have reason to panic somewhat with a genetic disorder i have and many of my family members have also.
ok so here goes...
about 6 weeks ago i became very constipated.. never had been before. i dorted that out eventually with laxatives n whatnot! Next up was a kidney infection which needed 2 course of anti biotics to clear.. during this time i always had a strange 'pulling nerve like' pain at the very top of my abdomin. it would come in darts lasting only a few seconds but as time went on it became more frequent.
I mentioned it to my doctor and i was told it was a gastric problem!! I really didnt think so.
This continued over xmas, so i went back to my doc last week. i had started gettin this pain just above my belly button too! I had also noticed 2 or 3 small bulges/ripples on my left side of my tummy.. tiny really.. only i can notice. i was told my a doc(not my usual doc) that it was probably dry skin!!
Anyway.. when i seen my doc last week he said he would send me into hosp for an ultra sound just to be on the safe side.
the doctor i seen in the hospital done blood tests and an xray. she also felt my tummy, i told her i was worried about sn aneurysm or something serious. all results came back clear! Would an anuerysm show in blood work or xray?
The doc put it done to a gastric problem and gave me 2 weeks of nexium(drug used to reduce the acid in the tummy) im on day 4 now n not feeling better.
I have suffered with panic anxiety attacks in the past.. and they have raised there heads again now because of this. my tummy just isnt right... however... im well aware that my axiety can be making this worse!
Sometimes i can feel that heart pulsating feeling in my tummy too.
any advice will be so much appreciated.
