and no i am not suffering from emotional stress or anxiety issue , the only issue is my condition which is for 3.5 months i am not getting well and all this is worrying me.
Thanks for the detailed reply. There are two things.
1) I also have pain in right ribs both in the front and at the back. The pain is also at the lower back where the kidney area or should i say muscle at the back and same on the front side area. The pain is dull type.I have already done Kidney test like CT scan and abdominal Ultrasound so its all fine. The pain is not constant in the ribs or back area. It sometimes a pointed pain or sometimes its just a pain but its on the right side. What that might be. Is it becuase of the weakness or the GAS i have.
2) Is this IBS or some what Crohn's disease.
Thank Dr. Robert. Please can you tell me if my ESR is in normal range (5) and WBC are in normal range, does that means i dont have any infection nor any inflamation.
