ok so a while back I posted that I went to the doctor...first time in my adult life, and was terrified but survived. Now I got my tests back and while most of it is shockingly fine some stuff is off and I have to go back and I'm freaking out...like panic attack freaking out - doctors are a huge source of anxiety for me which is why I avoid them and I'm sure I'm overreacting but I had to share it somewhere so I wouldn't send my self into stroke mode with my blood pressure spiking cause of my anxiety.
So the good news...everything in my basic profile - sodium, potassium, glucose etc - all that good stuff - is perfectly fine. I'm in the middle of the normal range for everything - huge shock and relief with my weight situation. My triglycerides were just a bit high - but I hadn't fasted and my doctor notated that she wasn't worried that it was just from not fasting.
The bad news.... I had 4 lines on my liver panel that are high - not off the charts high, but high and she wants me to go back and be tesetd for hepatitis B & C - now of course I'm webmd'ing which I know since I'm a panicer I shouldn't do but I can't help it - I don't have any symptoms but it says most people don't so that tells me nothing. I don't meet the general risk factors for hep C - no tattoos, no drugs, no transfusions before 92 - but hep b can be sexually transmitted so since I've had sex during my 30 years of life I'm worried now... even though I know it's treatable and manageable I'm still just freaking out that something might be wrong.
Has anyone had results like this - should I be freaking out, any words of advice to calm me down? I know I'm probably overreacting and this will turn out to be nothing and I know I should be happy about my other tests but I can't help but worry.
