Three days I've been 'sick' though I don't really understand what's happening to me.

The exact details-

I was up late at a party... i drank coffee, the first with a little shot of Baileys, then just normal coffee after that. I rarely drink alcohol. I was a pretty late night, went to sleep at around 4am.

I was feeling stressed out about having to leave on five-six hour flight the next day.

The next day when I woke up around 11:00am I was starving. I ate a banana and we all went to a restaurant. By the time my food came I was feeling kind of nauseous. I ate maybe 6 French fries and felt sick so I didn't eat anymore. I went to the bathroom and did number #2... it was liquid.
The rest of the day I felt too nauseous and stressed out to eat and had a coffee before my flight. I didn't eat the first plane, but had a coffee. I had another by the second plane I was beginning to feel normal hunger rather than nausea. I ate a chicken noodle soup. I arrived about 12am at my destination. I had nothing to eat and was drained so I just went to sleep.

The next day I awoke feeling intense hunger. I got a coffee and a bagel but had trouble stomaching the entire bagel. I was feeling nauseous most of the day, and did #2 several times that morning/afternoon... the feces was always liquid. I forced myself to stomach a small amount of chili. Later that evening my stomach had settled somewhat, I had a bowl of cereal with soy milk.

The following day the same feeling in the morning very intense hunger to the point where thought of eating sickened me and again I tried a coffee and bagel. I didn't feel well enough to eat most of the bagel. I used the washroom, again liquid #2 a couple times and finally went out to buy a banana (it was the only food I was craving). I also got a fruit cup with grapes, melons, and some fruit that was probably orange... I didn't feel like eating the orange part for some reason, but the other melon and grapes I ate no problem... the banana was under-ripe so I couldn't eat it, but I ate a mango instead. I felt a little better after this assortment of fruit, but it wasn't until the evening that I started feeling myself again. I ate two bowls of cereal (the kind with oats mixed with nuts and raisins) with soy milk.

This is the fourth day. I awoke again today with excruciating hunger pains. I was hungry but repulsed by thoughts of eating anything but a banana. I went out and bought a banana and ate it but found I had to do so a little bit at a time. I used the bathroom again at least a half dozen times by 2pm (this is becoming a trend I really don't enjoy) again the feces is liquid. Today I drank several glasses of water as I'm worried I may be becoming dehydrated with using the washroom so frequently and liquidly. I ate another mango around noon, and got a vegetable cup today with carrots, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower. I also ate a few cherry tomatoes. I got a carton of half and half cream and drank that after eating a multivitamin (I got them since I'm concerned maybe I'm missing some serious vitamins or minerals). I also drank one of those Carnation Breakfast drinks since solids seem really unappealing to me while I suffer the constant and intense hunger. The breakfast drink sat pretty heavy in my stomach. Even after eating all that I still had hunger pains that would not subside till around 6-7 in the evening (this seems to have been the same trend over the last four days). I ate half a bowl of chili to try and get some meat and fiber... i couldn't stomach any more than half the can though. Right now it's 10:00pm, I feel better, but I'm afraid to go to sleep.... will it all just begin again tomorrow... will this suffering end... what's wrong with my body? While I'm feeling healthy tonight I think I'm going to try stuffing myself before bed, perhaps if I'm full while asleep I won't wake up with crippling hunger tomorrow... otherwise I think I'll be calling a doctor. Any suggestions, diagnosis, and/or preventative measures would be greatly appreciated... I never want to feel this way again.

  • Sounds like the flu or food poisoning. Give it some time and do a soft diet for a week. See a doctor if it continues.

  • Well first off I suggest you lose the coffee for now. Coffee dehydrates you, so maybe swap it for water or juice instead. Other than that maybe go to the doctors and they should be able to help you.

  • Except for the hunger, could be gastritis or an ulcer. If so, not drinking coffee and taking a Tums might offer some relief. If that seems to help you still need to see a doctor to get permanent relief.But it just may be acute pancreatitis. Sometimes some strange things (like just a little booze) can trigger it. You'll need a simple blood test to find out. And, if it is acute pancreatitis, treatment can usualy calm it in a couple of days.
