Please don't worry about bothering your doctor! If you think something is wrong, ask your doctor about it! Don't worry about over reacting. You don't want something to really be wrong and have not gone to the doctor for it, you know? (I am NOT saying anything is wrong, because I obviously am not a doctor...) but please don't ignore your symptoms! I don't have any advice for finals, I had gotten my symptoms somewhat under control by the time I had to take them so I was able to get through it well enough... Try drinking some pepto before hand to help control your stomach pains maybe? It tends to soothe my tummy :) But just keep pushing! You can do it! Good luck! OH! And call your doctor! That's what they're there for! You (and/or your insurance) pays him right? Use your resources!
