Hello again everyone. Another hypochondriac here!
This morning I woke up with a feeling like I had a lump in my throat. It doesn't hurt and I can't feel anything on the outside. It's the feeling you get when you swallow something (like a dorito) and it gets stuck for a second or two until you swallow it down, just a general awareness of something there. Only this has lasted since I've woken up this morning. I called my doc because as usual, I sent myself into an internet panic over it (thyroid cancer, throat cancer, I stopped there). I am just getting over a sinus infection but I don't see how that would be related. Anyway, my doc told me not to be concerned about it and we will check it out on Friday when I have my physical (Oh, I am just SO stoked about that visit -
) She also mentioned it could all just be a part of the anxiety but it is bothersome and I'm really freaked about it. Oh, and she said that cancer wouldn't come on that agressively. Not much reassurance to a hypochondriac, as well all know too well!
It seems like everytime I get over (or accept) one symptom, I get another. It almost feels like some weird karmic game.. like, "Let's make Rachel miserable for the rest of her life because it's just so funny to watch her panic!" I hate this. I just want to be better. Now I get to wait in fear for my physical.. grrr...
