It has been a while since I've been here- have steadily been trying to get back to normal after my diagnosis. I had my RH in September last year- and have definitely struggled mentally since. Im still not back at work- feel a million miles away from myself still. I am doing CBT therapy and have recently been put on anti depressants by my gp.
For the last week- I have had a burning type pain in my tummy. It comes and goes, but can be very strong and intense! It is sometimes a dull ache, and I don't know if my anxiety manifests and makes it worse- that's what I'm hoping at least! The burning definitely gets worse when I'm having a real panic... but it's there in the first place to panic about if that makes sense?
I have left a message with my consultant this evening so will book an MRI in ASAP I think- I had one in December which was all clear. I also had a full smear test which came back clear too- so I am hopeful (a teeny bit!!) that it's would be unlikely to have a recurrence bad enough to cause such pain in that timeframe?
I have felt fabulous physically for the last month (other than my lightbeaded'ness which although I know is most likely my anxiety- Of course I worry I also have a brain tumor) so it's a real knock for me.
I can have hours pain free- them BAM it's back. Walking helps, and if I'm distracted it helps a little too. Tends to be better mornings & evenings (apart from tonight.... but I am extra anxious today after contacting my consultant.. huge deal for me- husband hides the post and lets me know an hour before appts so I don't have time to get worked up!! I really am bad)
Just wondered if anyone has experienced similar pains after an RH that have turned out to be nothing sinister?
Please don't tell me stories resulting in recurrence as I don't need anything else to add to my negativity!!!
