First real pain

Aug 09, 2019 3:49 AM

I've had my share of aches and pains before, from headaches to menstrual cramps to stomachaches but I think they're better because I can manage them well and I know that they will be gone in a day or two. Recently, I have been experiencing these upper back pains that radiate towards my upper chest. I have been feeling them for 5 days now. I'm so scared to go to the doctor for fear that there might be something wrong with me. I'm planning to work abroad and I don't want whatever condition I have to hinder my dreams. I just really hope this would go away soon. But couldn't help being worried, anxious and scared. I think my anxiety is even making my pain worse.
