Hi, for a couple of weeks now I've noticed a pain in the bottom left of my abdomen. Its a dull pain, but not really bad. I've also been belching quite a bit and the taste buds on my tongue are yellow. I've also got 1 really big one at the back of my tongue and also a few white sores in my mouth and on my tongue. My face has been really hurting on and off for the past 6 months, and when I bend over my head feels like its going to explode. My doctor reckons it all down to anxiety/stress/depression etc. I feel really rough, but not sure if I'm being fobbed off. Anyone any ideas please ?

I'm not a doctor, but it doesn't sound like anxiety to me...I'd go to a different doctor for another opinion. I wouldn't tell him what this doctor said. I believe in being honest with doctors, don't get me wrong, but if the first thing ylu tell a doc is that another doc said "this/that", they tend to look for a way to NOT disagree with the first one!

Hey there,

I think Janet is right on. I would see another physician perhaps an internal medicine physician who may have more knowledge re your sx.

It never hurts to get that second opinion.

I've got an appointment with somebody about my "anxiety/depression symptoms" on Tuesday, I will see what his opinion is. Thanks for the replies.
