Hey, I am 17 years old. I weigh 130 pounds, and I am 5'6.

I used to weigh about 140 pounds about two weeks ago. I am not dieting, nor excercising. I don't have much of an apetite anymore, and when I try to eat, I get full after a few bites. Sometimes when I eat, something right underneath my left breast pops out, like a bubble, and it is quite a disturbing sight. That has been happening randomly for the past couple months, but now it is considerably more frequent. At times this area hurts severly, usually after I eat.

Sometimes I have diahrea, but very rarely. Also, the area right underneath my breasts sometimes hurts as well. I have a constant urge to vomit, but I never actually do. A couple of days ago, there was blood when I went to the bathroom. But it was very little, and I am not on my period. This only happened twice. I also sleep a lot now, and get tired easy.

My Mom freaked out, and she took me to the doctor's about a week ago. My doctor also freaked out, so they made me take a blood test. She thought I had some bacteria, because she said it is most likely not a virus; they only last a little.

My blood was fine, so the doctor said to transfer me to a hospital for tests. My parents think it is not serious, so they are not putting forth the effort to go. I was wondering if it is actually something to worry about, because I don't show very serious signs of any disorder. Also, my Mom thinks (I don't know if this is ridiculous or not) that it's because I eat a lot of hot cheetos. But I don't eat them anymore, I don't have the apetite.

Should I be worrying?
