Hi All

I am very worried.

I have red spots on my shoulders, arms, chest and hands. There are only one or two on hands, I think they look like broken vessels. A patch appeared on my left shoulder two years ago and now I have a few patches of them on arms and chest they are under the skin and I also the odd red spot above the skin,

I suffer from health anxiety and have had acid reflux/stomach ulcer symptoms for months, although the last 2 months have been really bad. The pain in my stomach and the ammount of gas coming out is unbeleivable. Yesterday I passed wind for 20 minutes none stop and my stomach feels nauseus and empy all the time, even eating doesn't help. The only thing making me a little less worred is the fact I have gained a stone in weight.

I have also suffered from piles this year, had two opperations on them which have failed and I am only 30 had no kids, exercise and eat a heathy veggie diet and have since I was 10.

The doctor has booked me in for blood tests, I don't know what tests, he asked me if I drank a lot of booze I told him none and I am so worried that I have something really bad. I think from his questions that he is only testing my liver function, but I am worried about cancer all the time.

I was never ill appart from the odd cold and a bad back until just over a year ago when I had a chest infection and the doctor suggested I had AIDS which I didn't and since then I have been ill with one thing and another and the health anxiety has started since then.

The red spots you get with leukemia, do they cover large areas or develop in groups like the ones I have? Also do any of my other problems point out anything familuar to you wonderful brave people?

Thanks for any replys I am worried sick and can't get in for blood tests until nextweek, then I will have the long worrying wait.
