I have a stomach problem.
I feel good for as long as i don't eat. But when i eat i get really sick. I am living of domperidon now. Also when i drink lots i quickly feel ill. I get pains in my stomach not much after eating and i get nausea. This lasts for hours. After that i feel that i need food from my weak muscles and hungry feeling in my bowels, yet my stomach remains like a block. This is going on for several days now.

I am an athlete and slowly but certainly my energy is starting to fade away. I don't think it is viral or bacterial as my performances are just fine. But slowly my calorie defict is starting to play a role as i get tired quickly. But i remain sportive as a compensation for the periods i feel sick.

I am not depressed, things are just falling in place these months after very hard months (with some depression but no health problems, nour meds). I am looking very happy towards my future as i have some plans. But the stomach really starts to exhaust me...

My bowels are fine, it is just my stomach. It feels like a block and hurts when i eat something and i hate the sick feeling. Personally i am seriously starting to worry.

I had stomach tests a year ago as i felt nausea but i had no stomach pain then. It came from my bowels then. Those are fine now.

What to do?

  • Krike, I don't have any magic answer for you, but I think you should see a doctor. It could be something as simple as an infection. You need to see a doctor because you must be able to eat. Till you get an appointment, drink a lot of yoghurt with living culture, it might help a little. Good luck with everything!

  • Can I ask where the pain is? It sounds like it could be an ulcer but I see you have already been checked for stomach problems. Did they check for this? Some ulcers cause pain when hungry and before eating and some after food - it depends where they are. Did you get checked for H-Pylori, a common cause of ulcers? Of course, even if this is negative you could have an ulcer which would be found on endoscopy.

  • My mother in-law and brother-in-law both have chrones diesease, which is hard to spot-takes a trained eye and a colonoscopy. Also my husband has ulcers and stomach acid problems which cause similar issues. The ever dreaded colonoscopy was needed for that one and an upper g i. His family jokingly calls that the rotissary treatment.(i know, spelled wrong) Might be what you need to find your problem, and I hope for your sake it isn't one of those. Good luck.
