      Hi shakeela since day before yesterday I lost my appetite and had been having headaches as I was worrying about something (family matter). I dont think I suffer from migraine but this time acid reflux came with headache pressure in the eyes and extreme nausea. I wasnt feeling hungry but I worried that if After long period of not eating when I do end up hungry I might eat in large quantity which always end in an attack with me. I was due to go out to Asda anticipating long queues with a 5 year old so before leaving had one banana then also one activia yogert and 1 welsh cake. I ended up having too much. At night I didn't feel hungry and the headaches started and disturbed my sleep all night. The following morning (yesterday) My stomach was growling, had dodgy stomach feeling but no diarreah infact it was the opposite even though I take constipation medicine. I felt my eyes were extremely sensitive to light and my head was pounding. In the afternoon I tried small slices of water melon that came from Asda in sliced package. My symptoms became extremely worst after an hour of having water melon felt like throwing up all day with severe headache and chills. I couldn't even stand up for my prayer. My tummy was also growling I don't know how to explain but very uncomfortable feeling in my lower tummy. Its making me think if I have Ibs. By the way a few days ago I had my endoscopy results and it states they have found nothing except from a mild inflammation. They haven't said where the inflammation is esophagus or stomach. I hope you are feeling better. take care everyone.

    yes i always have especially since nany of my flare ups are on an empty stomach. This causes me Hypoglycemia and i have actually fainted twice from this. So a good rule of thumb for anyone is to eat frequent small meals. Good Luck!
