about a month ago i weighted about 100 pounds. what seemed like overnight my stomach was swelling and cramps to the point of being double over. by the time i got to the doctor a week later i my weight had reached 108 pounds. i know i need to gain weight but not like this. they ran every test for any digest disorders everything came back neg. after some research on the net i realize that feeling tired all the time and the other systems that maybe i needed to go to my gyn. today i went there and she did the regular exams says she can't feel anything so it must me IBS. just a little background im 29 years old. my mother died 5 years ago from breast cancer and my aunt died 4 years ago of it also. they both were in there 40's. my mother had fought thee cancer for 10 years. i'm a little scared some one is missing something and not sure if i'm overreacting or if they really are just ingoring me bacause of my age. please help??
