Hi all,

This is Dean.

Well, I have been feeling horrible lately and it is getting bad enough that I definitely need to get it checked out. I am having a few symptoms that I'd like to bounce off of you guys. Here it goes:

1. I have a feeling in the back of my throat, almost like a hair is caught back there. I notice it when I brush my teeth and talk alot. Eating and drinking seems to make it better briefly. Some thing I have read suggest a thyroid problem, but I'm not sure, so I wanted to bounce that off of everyone.

2. My appetite has decreased exponentially in the past few months. I used to be able to eat ALOT of food, so ths is not like me. I now only eat a little bit of food and then feel full and uncomfortable for 10+ hours. My diet wasn't great, but it was better than most people my age. I have since (5 days ago) changed my diet to more healthy foods. I have found that I can avoid the full bloated sick feeling for hours on end if I'm careful, but my appetite is still absurdely small.

I went to a party last night and I had a few different foods:

2 Sam Adams
Cold Pepper vegetables
cold broccoli veggies
a few crackers
1 bite size veggie pizza made w/ cream cheese
1 bite size mushroom pizza made w/ cream cheese
2 bite size cheese triangles

After that, I felt uncomfortably full for a good 7 hours or so. Thats not normal. Those foods are not bad for you, and I had an appetizr's portion. Somethings not right.

I am also experiencing mild constipation.

I want to try colon cleansing, but Im not sure if this will solve the full/digestion problems. My logic says that yes it will, but I was hoping to get some input from you guys on that.

Lastly, I seem to be in a depression. Firstly though, I want to address the other two issues because they may be making me depressed.

If anyone could shed some light, I'd be very thankful.

  • Sometimes the stomach doesn't empty (delayed emptying). Go see a doc who can prescribe something that will speed your motility up. Look up motility disorders.

  • Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is excellent for most GI disorders. Please consider this form of medicine to get you back in balance. There are many good herbal patent formulas to help aid digestion. Your Spleen sounds out of balance and your Liver sounds stagnant. A Liver/Spleen disharmony can result in depression symptoms. Traditional Chinese Medicine looks at the whole picture, and treats the whole body, mind, spirit. Please consider trying it - it works! Best wishesDOM
