Im 17 and there are so many things wrong with me and im in so much physical pain all the time.

Now my sides below my ribs are hurting. like sharp pain. :( my stomach does growl and burn a lot.
at first i thought it was from the gasses in my stomach but now im really not sure.

when i go to the bathroom..."/ theres "mucus" Idk if thats normal for anxiety too. my mom said yes but im so scared.

anyone else like this?

Sounds like tummy problems.

No it is not anxiety. Yes anxiety can cause strange and unusual pains. But this to me does not sound normal for anxiety. I would go see the doc and let him know your having tummy problems.

Anxiety does cause strange and just unnormal pains and feelings but IMO this isn't one of them. Chat with mom and go see the doc!

Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Perhaps you should see your physician to rule out any stomach problems.  I would encourage you to talk with your Mom re the continued pain.

Go to the doctors...sounds like a bowel problem of some sort, put your mind at rest and see the GP, they'll be able to help :)

I have never heard of 'mucus' being a side effect of anxiety. I suffered intense abdominal pain as a teen (i still do) and in my case it was a combination of Ovarian Cysts, Endometriosis, my appendix, Gall stones, kidney infections and IBS. just because thats what happened with me does not mean i am suggesting thats whats wrong with you, i would never presume to try and diagnose you, but maybe you could ask your doctor to rule out some of these common tummy probs?

Does the pain flare after eating? is it on one side, or all over your tummy?

All the best, keep us posted

Hello! Just wanted to say "hi" and hang in there! Also, I've never heard of mucus being a symptom of anxiety, either. You probably just need some medication for your tummy. Feel better soon!

I'm not a doctor and definitely go get checked out but it sounds like it might be IBS. That can cause you to be mucus-y and anxiety can compound already irritated digestion. When I get stressed my IBS gets out of control, I don't eat at chain restaurants anymore because of it. But definitely get checked out, your doctor will have a better idea of what's going on and give you some good ideas of how to get the pain and discomfort under control. Hope you are feeling better soon and check back in after you see your doctor to let us know how you're doing! *HUGS*
