Some dr's have no bedside manner. Unless you asked him FIRST if it could be cancer, and that's how he responded , then that's another story. I can relate to the hypochondiac part, bc I've been plaqued with those obsessive thoughts in times past(it started when I was a teen, and came around sporadically but nothing too bad, to where i couldn't focus or anything) Anyway if you took a survey of ppl and asked, how many of you get aches and pains, or get twinges of pain everyday...I'm sure everyone would raise their hand. And it also has nothing to do with age, as I am only 34, and had unexplainable pains and aches every now again even as a teen. Could be as simple as not enough water(my joints really ache then) too much caffeine, GAS, not enough vitamins, and most of all stress. I can touch my forehead and feel pain ,one day, then rub it the next day and have no pain. Our bodies are a mystery. Just know this..the more we stress the lower our immune system becomes. Is worry worth robbing you of your health?
