Sandra asks…

Months after beginning to eat after anorexia, stomach pain after eating? (READ)?

I am 14, 5’8” and probably somewhere between 110-114 pounds.
I was diagnosed with anorexia in the beginning of September, and went to inpatient treatment at the end of September. I was there untill the middle of November. I know the refeeding process occurs when you just begin to start eating again, and I had that. It got better after I left inpatient, and I had no problems with it.

It’s now the end of December, and for the past 2 nights I have had stomach pain after eating dinner. I eat quite alot at dinner, and usually get stomach pains and bloating after eating dinner and have to go to the bathroom, if you know what I mean. I don’t eat too much during the day.

Why is this? Is it something to worry about? I have no stomach issues as a result from the disorder, but I am allergic to milk and have had acid reflux since I was 6.
I’m a vegetarian.

answers:

One of the problems with being anorexic is that if you purge along with not eating, your stomach lining develops scar tissue. This scar tissue cannot go away and you have to live with this. The more scar tissue that is formed, the less you are able to digest food properly. Eventually, the scar tissue makes it impossible for you to digest and you die. This is what happened to Karen Carpenter who had all the money in the world, but doctors could not help her.

You are allergic to “Pasteurized milk” that comes from grain fed cows because it is loaded with toxic waste, bad proteins, and no lactose eating bacteria that is found in GRASS FED cow milk that is NOT pasteurized. Acid reflux from 6 years old is a strong indication of other issues that you need to get to the root cause of so you don’t have to deal with that for the rest of your life. If you had any TRAUMAS to your body, both physical & mental, that needs to be addressed and could be the root of the problem with your stomach.

Doctors are NO help when it comes to dealing with acid reflux. They prescribe antacids that STOP THE DIGESTIVE PROCESS and create all kinds of additional problems. You need to focus on real health and gain some understanding of how your body works nutritionally. See a nutritional therapist that can truly help you get through all this and get well.

Good luck to you

Mark asks…

I’m so lonely and sad. I’m sick and…disabled. I can’t do anything but sleep lately. I’m not sure what to do?

I’ve been sick soooo long with simultaneously everything and something unknown wrong with me. By that I mean the doctors have diagnosed me with many serious ailments …degenerative bone disease, IGG3, gastroperesis, acid reflux disease, IBS, anemia, high blood pressure and much more yet none of these things can explain dozens of other weird, horrible symptoms and issues I’m having. I also have always suffered from severe anxiety, insomnia, and severe depression. Which as I’m sure you can imagine has all been exacerbated from my physical ailments despite treatment and therapy. This all has been going on soooo long and while I pretend I’m okay for my poor over worked Mom’s sake, I’m truly not. My respect for my mother and belief in God will not allow me to harm myself or commit suicide. But sometimes I wish I could. I am pretty much stuck at home with no car all alone all day while my mom works. And I’m so sick it is hard to actually go and do things anyways. So I’m very isolated. And luckily I’m a very introverted person who would rather stay in than go out anyways. However lately the isolation is becoming too rough even for me. And the fact that small seizures are my newest symptom keeps me even more isolated, unable to safely drive really. Anyway I have started sleeping constantly unable to stay awake for anything and I can’t even figure out if it’s from depression or illness. I had some internet friends for awhile but haven’t been able to talk to them anymore. They are all busy. And my real life friends well they don’t stick around for long. Its hard to see me deteriorating like this they all say and they stay in touch and even some text daily but it’s like there is a barrier between us. They have lives, I don’t. They feel guilty for that no matter what I say it seems. Anyway I have absolutely no idea how to make this better. I don’t know how to find people to help me. I don’t know how to get hope back. We’re broke, I’m sick. The whole world seems bad. I’m not sure what I’m even asking here. I guess I’m just seeing if anyone out there can help me. Please help me……anything would be good….advice….friendship …..etc. Please help get back my hope or purpose. Help me………………..

answers:

You should turn this into a posative and help others who suffer from physical and mental ailments when you overcome these issues. I know you will. Hang in there. You have a purpose. Hold on to that. Your not alone.

chronic hiccups/severe voimiting – diagnosis/treatment?

pepcid not working-could it be something other than acid reflux/gerd?

answers:

You need to have your Dr. Check out your diaphram area. The muscles of the diaphram are where your hiccups originate and you also use these same muscles to vomit, if you are having super hiccups that have your diaphram muscles constantly convulsing, this would cause you to feel the need to vomit. I have had severe hiccups which made me feel that way. Try massaging right under your ribs on the front of your chest just above your stomach and see if the hiccups go away. This sometimes works for me, but still get it checked, because your diaphram separates your chest cavity from your intestinal cavity and if it was somehow ruptured or punctured you would be in trouble, are you breathing okay? Just go to the Dr. They will figure it out, but don’t wait. Hiccups aren’t always just hiccups.

Lisa asks…

enlisting in military, surgery question?

Hi, I received this mail from MEPS stating that I wont need a medical waiver for this listed at the end? I just want to clarify things. So I just do the hernia repair and wait 6 months and I dont need a medical waiver? to anyone who knows, what does this exactly mean? thank you!

Department of Defense Instruction 6130.03, Medical standards for Appointment,
Enlistment, or induction in the Armed Forces, dated April 28, 2010, regarding
both the condition you describe and the surgical treatment for it, states the
following:

a. Esophageal Disease

(2) Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) (530.81), with complications,
including stricture, or maintenance on acid suppression medication, other
dysmotility disorders; or chronic or recurrent esophagitis (530.1) [is
disqualifying].

g. Abdominal Wall

(1) Current hernia (except for small or asymptomatic umbilical hernias),
including but not limited to uncorrected inguinal (550) and other abdominal
wall hernias (553) [is disqualifying].

(2) History of open or laparoscopic abdominal surgery (CPT 22900-22999,
43500-49999) during the preceding 6 months (P54) [is disqualifying].

This means that if you were to undergo surgery, you would be disqualified for
6 months after its completion. You would also have to provide copies of all
medical treatment records concerning the disorder and its treatment at the
time you submitted your medical pre-screen form to the Military Entrance
Processing Station. A waiver request does not appear to be necessary.

Very respectfully,

USMEPCOM

answers:

It is in plain English. You can go ahead and have the procedure after which you will dq’d from military service for a total time of 6 months. You will then approach your recruiter and explain your ready to go to meps again and you will need to bring all documentation from the doctor about the surgery and the healing process along with your brand new medical checklist.
