@hopeful33250 my GP just referred me to a GI for an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. She assured me that my blood work and urinalysis tests were all normal and that I did not need to worry about pancreatic issues (lipase and amylase levels were normal). I can't help but feel nervous because she doesn't know what to do for now and it could take time to see a GI specialist, however, I am trying to keep my hopes up because I tend to be very anxious about these sort of things.

Hello @mkl8425, anxiety is common when new health symptoms come up. That is perfectly understandable. but try not to let it consume your thinking. You might take a look at some of the discussions in our Mental Health group at how to control anxiety. There are some Members there who have gotten some control over their fear of the unknown. Here is a link to the discussions. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/mental-health/tab/discussions/?pg=2#group-88-activitystream

Do you know when you will see a GI specialist?

I would like to invite @gailb @gingerw @lioness and @mamacita to join you in this discussion about anxiety and health problems.
