Hello, i’m coming here being desperate. My doctors keep telling me i’m good, and I know it’s because i’m 22 and they assume i’m too young to be sick, but I can’t ignore my symptoms. I have been having constipation for almost a month, sometimes constipated, sometimes diarrhea, doctors always tell me my blood work and all is fine so i’m good, but I been feeling hot flashes (suddenly feeling heat and sweating for no reason) dizziness, feeling really confused as if I am a different person and then I feel normal again. I have pains around my body, i’m losing weight, I read online and i’m being told cancer such as prostate and it’s scaring me, but other sites say i’m too young for prostate cancer. Please help me know why i’m feeling sick the whole time. Sometimes I feel like it’s hard to breathe as well. And please don’t tell me it’s anxiety, I feel only anxious when I get my symptoms.

To eliminate fear of prostate cancer you can go for ultrasound. Get your thyroid profile, cbc, blood sugar fasting checked from some lab. In the meanwhile follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit (eat whole fruit not juice), a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Take simple food like rice n dal in dinner. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water.10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gym etc. For more details, you can consult me.
