Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi mate. I feel great. How about this. I had a bit of tension headache busy design day. Forgot it as chippy advised and you , gone. ! Hurraahhh.Then moving my tongue around my mouth under my tongue I felt a tiny lump. Panic !!I had noticed it before and on my last dental exams in August my dentist said chill it's nothing just a tiny bit of hard flesh. On the return for the hygienist he said its gone nothing there.The same place the same thing and when I look I can't see anything just feels a tiny bit raised
Il send you a pic to reassure me but the minute I got rid of the headache something else came up. Is this anxiety how it works and messes up your life. If there's nothing to worry about you find something ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

Looks ok mate I think I'm letting the anxiety go made there you go. Pal.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Oh that's totally normal MarkNo worries
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
tiny little thing but no sign of serious mate? The demon anxiety again ?? I really want to move on now and just enjoy life. But I think il have to except that il need a docs reassurance that's how I'm built ??
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It works for me in business but it makes my life hard C b t is what my private consultant recommended I tried it it didn't work. !!! Hypnosis didn't work. Yoga works a bit meditation for a day or two. But asking a doc seems to work the best I'm guessing it's trusting only an expert ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Definitely the demon anxiety again. I'm quite sure of it.Yes, anxiety and OCD is a blessing and a curse

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Been eating a very healthy veg rich diet. This week. More than normal I must say
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Yes, it does sound like sound IBS.
have you tried the FODMAP diet?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No mate ? Il try it.
I've got to be honest Phil it disappeared completely when I had the ct abdomen and pelvis they said all was normal and good. Then it just went. !!This is the first time.I'm guessing the anxiety demon has had enough time 8 months since scan to start up again. !!And here's a thing the tension headache disappears if I get i b s and vice versa. !Hard thing anxiety mate. So nothing serious ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
It certainly doesn't sounds serious
I would look for anemia, persistent changes in stool caliber, nausea, vomiting or change in stool color
Here is a link to the FODMAP diet for you Mark

So no anemiaCt of colon was normal. 8 months ago.I'm feeling fine just farting a lot mate !!
No nausea at the mo.And before I start the panic WBC is good enough in case it's a bug !!!! Doesn't feel like it mate.Relax ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's going talking to you mate thanks for reassurance. Just farts now. !!!!WBC would be ok if required mate ?? As chippy has said many times. Platelets 185 heamoglobin 164 red cells 5.0. WBC 3.78. That's good immune. I really need to get that in my head don't I pal. ?
