hi guys,
i found this forum doing a google search and seems like the right place to post this.

for the past few years i've been feeling worse and worse. for a good amount of years i've had headaches (on average 2-4 per month). i would on occasion get some pretty bad migranes but usually just headaches. sometimes i would go to sleep with a headache and when i got up i would still have it.
a couple of years ago i noticed i was feeling fatigued most of the time and it's never gotten better. i have a constant feeling of fatigue. it's like when you wake up and you're not feeling that fresh but it lasts like that the whole day - every day.
then i started getting a discomfort in my lower back. it's like a constant pressure and when i try to take a deep breath it feels like i get a shortness of air. that's the best i can describe it.
most recently i've noticed i get cramps on my right side above the waist. it hasn't happened too often but it seems like it's on the rise.
i used to not eat regularly-lots of junk food, smoke, drink, not sleep right and thought that's what it was. i had a constant body weight of around 175 lbs for the past 5 years. now i'm eating healthier, at regular hours, sleeping right, exercising not drinking except on rare occasions. i've also cut my smoking from 1 pack a day to around 3-5 cigarettes.
still feel the same and it's hard to be active and exercise when i feel tired all the time plus the lower back pain is getting worse. any ideas?!
i would really appreciate any help :)
i'm 27 now btw

  • Hello, I hope someone can help you here. You have not indicated whether you are male or female, but from my (admittedly limited) experience, if you presented with those symptoms at an ER, you would probably be checked for peritonitis.If you are a female, you might want to ask your doctor to check for endometrial cysts.HTH and hope you feel betterhi guys,i found this forum doing a google search and seems like the right place to post this. for the past few years i've been feeling worse and worse. for a good amount of years i've had headaches (on average 2-4 per month). i would on occasion get some pretty bad migranes but usually just headaches. sometimes i would go to sleep with a headache and when i got up i would still have it. a couple of years ago i noticed i was feeling fatigued most of the time and it's never gotten better. i have a constant feeling of fatigue. it's like when you wake up and you're not feeling that fresh but it lasts like that the whole day - every day.then i started getting a discomfort in my lower back. it's like a constant pressure and when i try to take a deep breath it feels like i get a shortness of air. that's the best i can describe it.most recently i've noticed i get cramps on my right side above the waist. it hasn't happened too often but it seems like it's on the rise.i used to not eat regularly-lots of junk food, smoke, drink, not sleep right and thought that's what it was. i had a constant body weight of around 175 lbs for the past 5 years. now i'm eating healthier, at regular hours, sleeping right, exercising not drinking except on rare occasions. i've also cut my smoking from 1 pack a day to around 3-5 cigarettes. still feel the same and it's hard to be active and exercise when i feel tired all the time plus the lower back pain is getting worse. any ideas?! i would really appreciate any help :) i'm 27 now btw
