Welcome to HealingWell. I am sorry you are going through this tough time. I suspect you are getting stuck with anticipatory anxiety.
Anticipatory anxiety is where a person experiences increased levels of anxiety by thinking about an event or situation in the future. The worries you experience specifically focus on what you think might happen, often with catastrophic predictions about the event.
To begin treating anticipatory anxiety, we must be able to admit that we cannot predict the future. Any scenario we are able to imagine is nothing more than speculation and fabrication.
I have "freaked out" over many things only to find out everything was fine. Try to stay in the moment and continue to advocate for yourself by following up with your Dr. and seeing the GI specialist. You have received great advice from our members so stick with us and know we care.
