Ok. So my panic has gotten WAY out of hand. I have my mother on the phone all the time crying and what not. Here's what happened. My AF was late month. In fact, I STILL don't have it. I feel like it's coming, but it doesn't. My cramps went away, bloat went down...the only thing I still have is Hunger and being tired. I had a tubal 2 years ago and have been pretty regular, so when it didn't show I freaked. The doc told me to POS just to be sure. I did three times and they've all been -neg-. So then I went online and was looking up other things it could be and came up with Cysts and tumors on the ovary. So I started thinking I have tumors there. And I was crying and bugging out big time. My husband couldn't take it anymore and took me to a psycologist who did this really cool bio feedback stuff. It helped a little. I left his office and went to the gyno office. I found out that my pulse was like 110 by the time I got there ...blood pressure was like 122/ 67 or something like that. He was trying to see if I had any tender spots in my back and then palpitated my abdomen and lower belly and said he felt absolutely nothing in there and for me to just chill. He said while he couldn't say for 100% certainty that it's not something else, he's 99.9% sure. But he wanted to get my anxiety under control. So he put me on Fluoxetine 20mg once a day and lorazepam .5mg before bed for 10 days. I'm still really worried about what could be going on in there but I think I may be a little calmer. Not sure yet. lol. But I figured I'd give ya'll an update.

Well I am glad to hear you went to the doctor and even happier to hear that you are doing well. I hope these meds really help your a/p and get you back to feeling better.

Good Morning,

Super, you are advocating for yourself.  Now remember the physician was 99.9%  sure that you were fine.  If you continue to have concerns do return..............sounds like he gave you 10 days to see if things improved.

Take care,
