How do you know when it's NOT FMS...?

Beth - July 19

Sometimes I have symptoms that I haven't had before, and get totally freaked out there's something ELSE wrong with me. Both my parents and my uncle died from cancer, so of course that's the first thing that pops in my mind. Then of course the anxiety kicks in and makes everything worse.
I am not one to run to the doctor for every ache and pain--after all, 99 times out of a hundred they say eiteher fibro or stress. Not to mention I have two small kids to care for and also simply can't afford to keep going to the doc. So how long do I wait? How do I differentiate between "more of the same" and "something new and different"?
*sigh* I am SOOO tired of this, feeling like a hypochondriac, getting all stressed out for nothing, worrying that THIS time is the time I should have seen the doctor earlier.
Can anyone relate? What do YOU do?
