How did I dare to ingest food in my body knowing how bad I would feel!!!!

 

Had 7 peanuts, leaked guts, cramps again. yayyyyy, so hungry yet cant eat shit.

 

Just felt like venting, I'll go see a doctor when I can afford to waste 100$ to get told everything is fine and go home.

 

Still feels weird to me how I get reaction in my GUT when the food is still in my stomach, now you'll say, but it's probably a reaction from a prior food, well it happens right after I ate.

 

 

I think it was suggested that you try something that is easy to digest - like a baked sweet potato or regular potato.  Stomach cramping, etc is very common when you haven't really eaten any food for many days, as you claim.  Maybe try some gluten-free chicken or beef broth?  Then cook some small shreds of carrot or sweet potato in the broth?  Really small so you can sneak it past your stomach.  Maybe just drink a quarter cup, slowly,  every hour for a day.  Then try a bit of banana or apple sauce added to your day.

 

Maybe cut the ginger tea?  It actually bothers my stomach, maybe it is a problem.  Try to sip on some Gatorade or flat soda like ginger ale.  For some reason the teas bother me but ginger ale always settles my stomach.  It might be the sugar in it.  Sometimes nausea is the body's weird response to low blood sugar.

You can't live on ginger tea.  Bromelain and ginger--some people say it soothes their guts. Not mine. Makes mine irritated.

 

Your gut is cramping possibly because it is looking for nourishment.

 

Do as Karen suggests (above) and keep the food choices simple. Boiled chicken, plain rice, carrots. Small portions.

 

Stop taking supplements. if you gut is impaired, they won't be absorbed much anyway.

 

If you really feel as if you are starving and are going to die, as you say please go to the emergency room. It does not matter whether you have insurance or not. If you are seriously ill, you need medical help. We're not doctors on here and we cannot give medical advice but we do understand what "I am starving to death"  means. It's a plea for help--and we gave it to you last week and we're giving it to you again--or it's an exaggeration.

 

You have to eat something, hon. Tea isn't food. and it isn't protein. Lack of protein causes cramps in muscles even in the muscles in the gut.

 

"Protein provides the body with energy. Low protein stores will cause you to feel lethargic, fatigued and weak. You may also experience headaches, nausea, diarrhea, soreness of the stomach and even fainting. Protein helps transport nutrients within the body, delivering and releasing them where they are needed. When protein is not able to perform this function, the body's homeostasis will be thrown off. This may result in a loss of appetite, irritability, insomnia, apathy, and the inability to stay warm."

I said I'll starve to death if I choose to just drink tea, which is not why i did.

 

I ate this morning 2 egg and blended fruits in almonds milk then 7 peanuts felt like crap then baked potato and some lettuce, feeling ok but still incredibly hungry, gut is making a ton of noise, but again it always is unless i stop eating for a whole 8  hours.

 

Also had diarrhea this morning and it was all undigested food.

 

I had beef meat twice on Friday and it's when i started to get very bad cramps, and then i had it again the next day, bad cramp then one more the day after because i didn't want it to rot and bad cramps again.

 

I guess i cant tolerate, meat too.

i

Only things that seems to do me OKAY are eggs and fruits, anything else gives me a reaction. But why this makes no sense to me is I digested meat fine the first time, no more, same for nuts.

"7 peanuts felt like crap"

But you said in your original post your allergic/intolerant to peanut butter correct? So probably shouldn't eat peanuts

 Good point, but we've all told him this on several threads. He really needs to see a doctor ASAP

You are in Canada. You have public health insurance. You do not have to pay to see a doctor. You need to come up with some reason other than that false excuse.

Now it looks like he has eaten more than just a few peanuts.  Its hard to get the real picture of what is going on here.  Said he wasn't eating anything but tea, said he couldn't breathe at all... 

 

Not sure there is much any of us can do for you right now.

 

Didn't you say you live in Canada?  There might be a long wait but they don't charge for medical care.  If you are really as bad as you say, you can certainly go to the emergency room and be seen and treated for the emergent issues like inability to breathe or not eating in weeks.

You get appointments for doctors , appointments are during the week,I work during the week and dont get paid if i take a day off.

 

I had an appointment ,my doctor canceled my appointment and took off for 2 weeks, I could go to the clinic on the weekend which is what I'll do at this point I guess, I wanted to get a new doctor as the family doctor I have is bad and I heard you can get one from CLSC, someone that will follow up with me, but guess I'll waste an entire Saturday and have a doctor who has no background about me, who doesn't care and who will also NOT follow with me in case of anything. Just repeating the story and not be heard and waste my time.

 

The fact I am shortness of breathe DOESN'T prevent me from inhaling air but it sure make me feel like something is going wrong, the fact I get bloated and feel huge cramps when I eat DOESN'T prevent me from putting food in my mouth, i never said i didn't eat for weeks, that is what someone else suggested, please don't think that because someone suggested to not eat for weeks that this is what I did. Also considering this wasn't even a week since i posted this thread.

 

I did eat 7 peanuts, and did mention all I had today, no i didn't binge on a whole pack.

 

"7 peanuts felt like crap"

But you said in your original post your allergic/intolerant to peanut butter correct? So probably shouldn't eat peanuts

I was doing fine eating almonds and I was doing fine with peanuts as well, until now. People suggested the peanut butter could be from the oil or something else.

But you are so sick....what else do you have to do?  Really, from what you are saying, I'm not sure why they haven't sent you home from work.  You couldn't possibly be able to do a job right now.

I"m not, but I don't have much work to do, and I just fake being ok, that's what you do when you have no other choices but pay your bills, you cope however you can.

 

All those symptoms hit me right when I had to do job hunting, it wasn't in my plans to get that sick then it got worse and worse.

 

I'm going back to my parents home at the end of the month and taking off work as I can't do crap anymore, I'm on a contract and got 3 weeks left to do.

Shortness of breath is a medical emergency and therefore they see you right away.

I've been to the ER twice for my asthma, each time they took me back immediately.
I never had to wait. Any heart or breath problems is a medical emergency.

I gave you advice on your post about the sob a few weeks ago. Honestly I don't see how you can still cope with it. I'm thinking the sob is anxiety because I know first hand how asthma can affect me and how quickly it can become a life or death situation. But if your truly experiencing an inibility to take in a deep breath and are using your abdominal muscles to breath, they treat that immediately.

Someone had mentioned in your thread about the shortness of breath that it sounded like your having anxiety attacks. At this point I agree. Anxiety can cause abdominal pain too.

Someone had mentioned in your thread about the shortness of breath that it sounded like your having anxiety attacks. At this point I agree. Anxiety can cause abdominal pain too.

 I saw a surgeon for my 'what I thought was a cyst', that was last Tuesday and I thought, oh wow I can have someone look up for my other symptoms and shortness of breathe. He asked me if I had health problems, then i started to explain to him all my problems, and shortness of breathe, then he said, do you take medications? I told him only vitamins and probiotics.

 

He clearly just wanted to hear that I was in perfect shape, then looked at my cyst and told me it wasn't one and sent me home and that if i wanted further help i should see my family doctor.

 

Yup, been using my abdominal muscle for the past month and a half but clearly it's all in my head, I am just being anxious, I'm eating way more peanuts then i mentioned. Thank you for all thinking I'm faking my symptoms like doctors always do, I am going to the clinic on Saturday and from there I'm no longer going to waste my time on this forum.

 

And I doubt shortness of breathe makes your intestines do a bunch of noise, give you the feeling like your gut is fighting a war, give you undigested food in your stood and constipation, ya anxiety...

That's why I said go to the ER. In the ER shortness of breath is a medical emergency. But it seems you don't want to take any advice that has been given.

A surgeon is not going to treat shortness of breath
