Feeling similar to hunger

So it all started in the past November. I was having a normal meal at a restaurant but then I just started having this weird aching feeling really similar to hunger but that can't be it because I had eaten a great amount of food and was feeling pretty full at the same time. The feeling kept bothering me during a few time but then it just went away. Two months ago (maybe) the feeling came back but now it is much more regular. I have it basically everyday. I wake up feeling hungry but the hunger just feels different. I eat something and the feeling gets better but comes back right after and it just can't be hunger. Then, I sometimes feel nauseous, my intestinal stuff is sometimes weird and my belly makes lots of noises. I'm really starting to get worried. Any idea?

    I am only 17 and a female and my parents won't take me to a doctor and I'm really worried that I may have stomach cancer or something. Can someone please give me an honest opinion?

    Hi Sara,

    it it sounds like you may have a stomach ulcer but you must go to doc for proper diagnosis. If it is a stomach ulcer, it is easily treatable with medication so there's no need to worry.

    ive had many ulcers in my lifetime and the gnawing pangs of hunger especially immediately after eating, are a classic sign. But you must not just leave it as it could bleed and cause more serious problems.

    If I ever work out how to actually post this reply, I hope it's been helpful! I've tried three times so far and it keeps disappearing!

    let me know how you get on

      Dear Sara alot of digestive problems can cause loss of appetite, i had gastitis which is an inflammed stomach lining which can be treated with medication. My loss of appetite went on for a few weeks aswell and yes it is worrying but like i said other disgestive disorders can cause this, plus worrying will add to the appetite loss. I would say you must go to the doctor so they can sort it out for you x

    dont worry sara, because anxiety wil make your tummy feel worse. I get this hunger feeling after eating sometimes. It can be a related to having a mild cold (or a norovirus) - mucus drains into the stomach and produces more stomach acid.

    It could be IBS or a food intolerance, set off by something you ate at the resturant.

    If you cant get to a doctor why not ask the drug store pharmacist for advice? You could always buy some anti-acid tablets at the store and see if it helps. You mom should take you seriously - she sounds hard-hearted!

      Better to be safe and speak to a doctor, and have tests. if it is a stoamach ulcer you will need medication to cure it. If you tried meds such as gaviscon and it makes no difference, then you need some tests. Of course, avoid all acidic and peppery/chilli foods - even coffee.

      Hey pat! 

      Well, I think my mom is finally taking me somewhere. I hope we can figure it out. 

      The weirder is that right when I wake up all the little burps and tummy noises and everything starts without even having anything in my stomach..

      Dear Sara you should just go and get it checked, could it have been from your gums? I have that occasionally even a hot drink can set it off, but it is best to get yourself checked out x
