Is it normal to have a stomach ach all the time. I have been very strict with myself about eating other then breakfast. I haven't ever been a breakfast person. And I was also wondering is it normal to always feel hungery.

Re: I need someones help anwering this question

are you getting digesional problems too?
Have you ever experianced an allergy to milk/dairy in general?

I think it would be a good Idea to go to the doctor to discuss this anyway TLC, as you suspect UTI and I have never heard of that causing stomach pains, (although It may do, and I've just never heard of it) You could give drinking lots of water a go, but I still think that you should go and explain your symptoms to a doctor to be sure.

Re: I need someones help anwering this question

As far as the increased appitite is concerned it could be a number of things; meds, digestional worms (not uncommon for people that work/come into contact with dogs and other animals), increased excersize, has anything changed in your life recently that you think could be resulting in these symptoms?

How long have you been experiancing them?

The hunger for a while maybe two months. The pain in my stomach two days now. I haven't been exercising and I haven't been around any animals other then my own and they have been all vacinated and wormed, who knows.

Lost child, with out seeing a doctor, it could be anything from constipation to something sever. I hear that you are scared about the pain, have you taken anything for it? i would suggest you try this link:

https://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/ask/

I tried to find one in the US but wasn't able to. if you email them they should be able to answer with some reasurrances.

TLC,

I know you said that you are experiencing hunger and I was just wondering (and correct me if I am way off base here) but whether you are maybe trying to convince yourself that you are hungry because you are scared and do not want to have to go to your doctor every week to be weighed and want to be able to tell her/him that you are hungry and eating.

It is just a thought that came to mind about the hunger that you are describing and the sudden intake of food. I know you said that you have been restricting food a lot lately and not intaking much, if anything and was wondering if adding food too fast to your system may be the cause of the stomach pain.

I am not a doctor and may be way off base on this whole post but just trying to shed some light on what may be going on.

One thing to remember TLC, if your pain becomes too much to handle, head to the closest ER to be checked out. You don't want to fool around with your body.

Take care
:hug:

Lower right quadrant abdominal pain isn't something to be ignored. It's not probable that it's caused by a UTI. It is important that you be seen by your doctor, and if the pain gets worse, to go to an emergency facility for examination.

Thats really good that you have been eating and not restricting TLC. I am proud of you for making those changes :goodjob:

But if those pains continue, please do go to the closest Emergency room to be examined.

I haven't had anything but Ensure for months.... I don't remember what a NOT sore stomach feels like. And I'm dropping about a pound a day right now... the specialist is worried. Me too. Worry doesn't make this mountain any easier to climb though.

TLC,

Although you haven't eating anything today, have you at least tried to keep your fluid intake up so that you don't get dehydrated.

TLC,
Hey... I'm not exactly one to talk as I haven't eaten in forever but do stay hydrated. If you buy some gatorade or something it will at least keep your electrolytes ok while you get things sorted out.
You try and I'll try, ok? We've got to get through this... and we will. :hug:

TLC,

While I understand that you have to gain weight for your doc and I am sure that he/she will be happy with your progress, it saddens me to hear your comment about not liking it that much. To me I wonder whether you are not really wanting to gain weight for yourself or to improve your health and truly get better and recover but only because your doctor is telling you to.

In my opinion I don't think that just by gaining weight will that solve the issues with food that you are struggling with. Are you talking to your pdoc about this because I really hope that you are/do?

I guess I am saying all this because I am worried that you are only going to gain enough weight to get your doctor off your back and not really get to the root of the issues and recover.

Anyway, I wish you good luck with your appt tomorrow and let us know how it goes.

Take care
:hug:
