Recently, I developed swelling under my right shoulder blade (back) due to a muscle injury and I have spasms. Worrying about the Diagnostic Mamogram, which turned out excellent, I lost some weight. I began to eat three meals a day (Mostly Healthy foods, and some fried foods) and I gained my weight back; however, I was experiencing loose stools in the morning only and some light headenesses during the morning. It would subside after lunch. I tried to regulate my bm by taking a probiotic, and vitamin B12 along with my regular multivitamin. The next day, the dierreha really set in. For the past two days, I have been on a bland diet of potatoes, toasts, cheerios, baked chichen without seasoning. This morning the dierreaha was not severe. For the past two days I have not been lightheaded. I do not have pain, There is no blood. Yet, the stools are brown and a little slick. Blood tests came back Fine. While worrying Christmas through XXXXXXX 2, I would wake up really hungry in the morning, but that has subsided also. I only go to the bathroom twice in the morning and I actually feel good afterwards - no weakness, or light headness. Did I worry myself into this state? What can I do now? I am a Healthy active 42 year old woman.
Thanks for posting your query.

I know someone who just found out she has elevated levels of CPK and was not given any advice (beyond abstaining from alcohol) regarding foods, activities, etc. to avoid and which ones would be good for her. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you
