Back pain, bloating - cancer, perimenopause? Ugh!

Ok, so to start I'll let you know I have severe health anxiety!

I have had all kinds of weird ailments and tests over the past 2+ years. I had severe abdominal pain that came out of the blue 2 years ago - had colonoscopy, ultrasound, etc. to test and all results were normal. Last year I developed acid reflux which comes on for months at a time and then goes away - weird. Anyway, here's my newest "ailment" and I made the mistake of doing a search and see that my symptoms match those of ovarian cancer. Ugh! I also have allergies now, too and take meds for that - yippee!

Currently I have:
*Lower back pain - sometimes a throb, sometimes burning, sometimes not there at all - started 5 weeks ago - mostly on right side
*Ribs are tender to touch (on the side and back)
*Bloating - comes out of nowhere!
*Vaginal dryness - severe, one week before period for 2-3 days - started 4 months ago

My annual pap is scheduled - I went last August and everything was fine - so I guess I'll find out soon what is wrong but was wondering what you all thought? Thanks so much. -tryingtorelax...
