Just want to chime in and say that I would not be happy about all those symptoms you're having either. Here's hoping you don't have cancer, and that you do get to the bottom of whatever's going on soon. Keep at your docs and get them to keep looking for an answer. It doesn't sound to me like a situation you should just shrug and accept. If you don't feel your doc is looking into your symptoms with the attention you need, find another doc. It's something we have to do in the cancer world, too.

I hope you get answers soon.

I'll chime in and say that unless you are a real hypochondriac the combination of all of those symptoms worry me also.

I hope you don't have colon cancer, but it sounds like *something* is going on. Have you been evaluated for lupus, for example? (Not a doctor, nor do I play one on the internet)
