Deathly Stomach Issues

Edited , 4 users are following.

I have recurring stomach issues... recently went to a gastro doctor and he said that none of the symptoms were anything he recognized. I'm hoping there's someone similar to me who can lend aid.

These pains come in episodes. They can happen upon me in twenty minutes or less and stay with me for days. The first time it happened, I was down for a week. I laid on my bathroom floor, struggled in and out of the tub from time to time to lay in the warm water, and basically waited to die. I tried to sip water and couldn't eat anything. By the time the third day rolled around, I was starving. Once I had a fever on top of it and I reached a point of dehydration so intense I couldn't raise my head up. The pain can be anywhere from my ribs to my pelvis. It's not hot or cold, but it rather feels like intense pinching and pressure. Most of the time, the worst is over in three to five days, but sometimes it lingers in the form of feeling like I'm starving to death and not wanting any food near me.

I've begun recently exercising as a result of something else happening in my life and I've never had any eating disorders. I had stomach problems during the winter of my freshman year, but this is far more intense. I don't always get a balanced meal because I work a lot and am always on the run - usually my meals consist of food I can grab ready-made somewhere or snacks I can easily unwrap in the car as I'm driving. I always get a good amount of sleep and I've had no recent medical trauma. It's been suggested by family members that I may be overworking my body, but I feel like I get a good amount of rest for what I do and I never feel overworked - only satisfied. What could be causing this and how can I get it to stop?

    You should take your life routines seriously. Because as you have said you work a lot and your food habits are not regular you should not be surprised about your stomach issues.

    Work is related to stress ( even if you think you don't stress, overwork does cause force your mind ). In addition not giving your body proper nutrition, by taking junk food can cause a loss in immunity that can invite diseases. Less sleep too causes immunity loss, though you said you get good sleep. Disease can start with anything like tooth problems, fatigue, stress and stomach issues.

    If it has happened because of lifestyle then you must adopt serious changes in your routine.

    1. Quit overworking. Entertain yourself with some music or laughter videos.
    2. Maintain discipline of time when working and eating.
    3. Focus on your sitting habits. Get rest for 10 mins after food. Stop sitting continuously in one pose.
    4. 10-15 mins of exercise and morning walk for 20 mins too can help.
    5. Quit junk food, smoking, alcohol. Start healthy food intake with more nutrition.
    6. Sleep on regular time.

    If you still think you are doing it all already, then try checking your source of food and water. Most stomach infection like hpylori caused by contamination. And don't go away unless you get it detected and take proper medicines.

    You didn't have your blood work done or a CT Scan or a Endoscopy?

    Go to a Doctor and get your blood work done

    Hey, hmm sounds like gallbladder issues. You need a CT scan with contrast to look for sludge or stones. When you have these episodes it's sludge clogging the neck of gall Causing you pain and nausea. Heartburn is also a symptom. In the meantime, do not eat fats or spicy and fried. Good luck
