Yes, it can.Could anxiety make me feel all the symptoms of a fatal cancer I’m worried about? Or do I actually HAVE those symptoms? Or do I only have them because my mind is making them up? Does that make sense? I’ve tried everything to get “rid” of my thoughts but the pains are still there...
Only your doctor can answer that question with any certainty, but I'd be willing to bet it's a muscle knot, a lipoma or a cyst. Very common, all of them, and equally harmless.Question about anxiety symptoms again...I get really tight muscles along my spine. I have had a knot down towards my hips but on my back. I’ve thought this was a knot like I always get. Now I’m wondering if it could be a mass I’m feeling versus a knot? I always thought it was tight muscles due to anxiety. Now I’m thinking maybe it’s more. Would I be able to feel a mass on an organ through my back?
That's what I've gathered as well, that cancer doesn't generally cause pain. It can when the mass grows large enough to press on surrounding tissue / organs, but simply having cancer doesn't mean one is in any pain.So if this makes you feel any better. I had the same cancer issues and fear that I had it because of pain. He looked at me and said that cancer doesn't really present with pain so I stopped worrying and that "pain" went away.
Yep. Anxiety doesn't affect my appetite often, but when it does it totally destroys my appetite. I'll often go several days eating once or twice a day. But then my appetite returns with a vengeance and all I want to do is eat.Anyone notice lack of appetite as a symptom also? I just don't enjoy food as much as I used to.
I am stumped on my symptoms. Pretty much every symptom I had from my pancreatic fear was because it was on the left side of my body. That’s pretty typical for me. But now, I have the same symptoms it in my right side? The only additional symptom is the hip pain that comes and goes. Any thoughts?
The pains I’m having aren’t really onntge anxiety list. Some of them in the past have been (lump in throat, twitching). I don’t see any of my current pains listed and I have SO many symptoms that point towards Pancreatic Cancer or another cancer. I don’t see how I can be ok and cancer-free with these symptoms. That’s why I was asking if the physical symptoms can be just from me thinking about the cancer constantly or what. I try to block it out but the pains continue.
Sorry, typo *arent really on the anxiety list (hip bone pain, lower ab pain, back pains)
yes always! I always go numb in my sleep but wake up not knowing if it was my dream or not our anxiety doesn’t stop when we are asleep so I think that’s why it happens xxxDo you ever have the symptoms while you’re asleep? Like, I can’t decide if I really had the abdominal pain last night or if it was in my dream or if it was real but I also felt it in my dream. Not sure if that makes sense. Then I wake up already thinking of the pains so I start my day out with it already on my mind!
