Have upset stomach. Feeling hungry but unable to eat. What's going on? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
hello doctor. i am twenty years old and i study abroad. it has been two weeks i have problems with my stomach
What is it that you exactly have?
actually i dont know if it is my stomach. i am a thin person 54 kg but even though i am thin i was eating all the time. breakfast snack lunch snack dinner snack.
i am still eating the way i used to eat but my stomach is upset
That is actually a very healthy way to eat provided that you're eating small meals
and even though i feel hungry i don't have appetite
when i wake up i can hardly eat my breakfast (toast)
Do you feel nauseated?
most of the times i will feel my stomach so upset! that i will just manage to eat my breakfast because i have to
most of the times.
no i am not pregnant!
when i feel like that i take stemetil . but they do not really help. i don't feel nauseated but still my appetite is not back
Have you been trying to lose weight earlier?
also the last 4 days i have terrible headaches. and even though i eat well, and i drink lots of milk, water and i take my vitamin every morning i feel weak and i sleep all the time
no. never had a problem with weight. i am eating all the time without gaining much weight
Given the headache and severe nausea
i first though that it could be a cold or a virus. thats why my stomach was upset like that. but i am really worried because i want to gain my appetite and eat the way i was eating.
You would be able to
not really. i changed environment from home to the country i am studying
I can assure you that
Do you consider that a stressor?
it can be yes
Most people would consider that to be a major stressor
but why does it take so long?
yesterday i ate my snack (a toast and a warm milk) and my stomach was so upset i could not eat dinner.
my stomach to recover
no, i just feel my stomach beeing "hard" . and feeling kind of nauseated
The nausea can be an association with the headache
Have you had these headaches before?
there are a couple of things you need to do then
yesterday and the day before i took a 1000mg aspirin
i was okay. but now the headache is back
Did it help the headache?
It will keep coming back if you dont destress
The diagnosis of migraine can only be confirmed after you see a physician in person
But stress really can precipitate migraine
do what you enjoy doing
forget the food part
its adding to the stress
why do i feel like sleeping all the time?
Its with the migraaine
It helps relieve the symptoms
You will have an appetite again once you destress and take aspriin 325 mg upto 4 times daily with food
It wouldn't help so much with the pain
But you must remember to take it with food
It can otherwise cause severe burning pain in the stomach
Just do the things you enjoy
try some XXXXXXX breathing exercises
These are the links
Can I answer any more concerns?
i have natural valerian extracts for stress relief
can i use them? i usually use them during exam period
That will only help you sleep
Additionally, their safety in clinical trials has not been demonstrated
So it would be best to use something which is clinically tested
They are great destressors
ok doctor! thank you very much
Did I answer all you questions or is there something you want to clarify?
no you answered everything!
Thanks for consulting me
Have a great day ahead and just relax
Bye for now
