Hi Everyone,

I have a meeting with my GI doctor in 2 days and my symptoms are really bad. Worried I am going to die before diagnosis.

I have extremely bad trouble swollowing.

Hiccups.

Never hungry.

Really bad nausia.

Cough.

Weight loss.

Muscle pains and twitching.

Trouble breathing and fast heartrate.

Head aches and weird visual things going on.

Stomach pain lower and upper abdominal.

Feel like I'm going to faint.

Doctors say that it is from anxiety and aren't concerned.

Worried I have Esophageal Cancer and it has spread throughout my body.

I just had my Endoscopy and Colonoscopy.

The doctor did take 2 biopsies. One from the stomach and one mid esophagus.

He didn't seem concerned though.

I'm still worried.
