Hi, I m 17 years old and recently I ve noticed that my stomach feels like it s full of air and I feel hungry and at other times It feels like I just got punched in the stomach. Over the past couple of months I have noticed feeling like I was going to throw up a lot and having several mild to moderate headaches a day. I ve also gotten pale.

Hello Katelyn,

Thanks for posting on HCM,
From your description you are suffering from indigestion or dyspepsia which might be as a result of one of the several digestive problems. You might be having an IBS, enteritis, intestinal parasitosis, peptic ulcer diseases/gastritis etc. Each of them will need to be investigated thoroughly by your doctor and ruled out before a definitive cause can be found. Laboratory tests such as stool exams, blood tests, colonoscopy etc might be requested. Since you are female ( i know you did not mention anything about it) and if you are sexually active, i suggest you get a pregnancy test done.
You will need antispasmodic medication and probably a course of antibiotics if infection is the cause.

Hope this helps
