Richard asks…

What’s wrong with me? Best answer=10 points and 5 stars?

Well, for about the whole summer now ( about 3 months ), I’ve been having nausea, stomache, cramps, heartburn, gas, and i think that’s it, but one day i threw up like 4 times and had to go to the hospital finding out i was dehydrated and had constipation. Idk if it went away, but they gave me suppository and it helped, but I still have symptoms. what’s wrong with me? Could this be all in my head, because i was so scared the day of the hospital O_O i keep on thinking about it constantly too, because ppl keep on reminding me, especially my mom, she’s like worried about me that’s why. I’m sick of this gas, i tried taking gas relief but it doesn’t work. Sometimes i have cramps, heartburn, nausea and stomaches. Do i need more water in my diet because i haven’t been drinking water too much, i’ve been drinking about 2-4 glasses of water a day, and do u think i need to change my diet too? Maybe i’m eating too many junk foods or i’m eating too much or not enough?? IDK!! I’m practically panicing, i’ve been putting up with this for 2 months!!! I need HELP!! My doctor doesn’t understand so yea -_-’
i’m 11 btw, and I weigh 81 pounds and i’m 4’9 or 4’10 around there.

Medicines i’ve been taking: (not daily only when nessescery)
Tums for kids (doesn’t help tht much)-1 tablet a day
Pepto Bismol (helps kinda )-1-2 tablets a day
Gas Relief (helps for like just a couple of min. )-1-3 tablets a day
Maalox (kinda helps )-1 tablet for a day
Pepsid ( kinda helps)- 1 a day (pill)
Zantac-( liquid medicine, doesn’t help at all) 1 teaspoon
and NO!! I’m not pregnant! jeez, they even took x rays of me and a pregnancy test (they needed it for my record) i’m NOT pregnant. i’m too young too!! :| all they said they could find was constipation and dehydration!! Or it could be me overreacting and it’s in my head becuz im so scared or something…

im not lactose either..i tried going without diary products for a whole day. Still had the symptoms..
it can’t be Celiac disease because i only have 1 of those symptoms which is abdominal pain.
I need some remedies in case I get a stomach ache or nausea at school…the doc. said he’ll get me a gas specialist ASAP which is until next week. I can’t wait that long!! Help please :(
i also have fatigue, i’ve taken like 3 blood tests yet they say it’s normal O_O
right now i don’t feel so good…i just drank a glass of soy milk and i feel like puking :( could this be stress or what?? I’ve been wondering what this is for 3 MONTHS!! :(
btw i only take Zantac and Pepsid now lol

answers:

It could be stress, you are 11 years old going through a lot in your life and your body. You even said your panicking. Is it possible that you are having panic attacks and anxiety? I would start by changing your diet, lots more water, veggies and fruits. No potatoes or breads unless the bread is whole grain. This will help with bowel movements and this will help with the cramps, nausea and stomach aches. As for the fatigue.. Do you play sports or sleep well? Staying active also helps your digestion and your sleep schedule.. In fact keeping active will make you feel better and be LESS fatigue. Limit your amount of acidic food (i.e. Orange juice, apple juice, citrus, pickles, tomatoes..) it will help with your acid reflex or heart burn, if you have heartburn DON’T DRINK WATER! It will make it worse, try a glass of milk and a piece of bread. Because you’re 11 and you have obviously gone to the doctors, you cannot be pregnant (hopefully you’re not sexually active anyways!) but if you are sexually active the act of sexual intercourse or sexual activity can cause cramping, nausea, dizziness, puking and stomach aches. Usually if you are constipated you can be dehydrated, but usually when diarrhea happens is when your actually really dehydrated. For Constipation you can buy Citrus Magnesium but plan to spend a lot of time on the toilet and because you’re only 11 and 80+ lbs I’d say only drink half the bottle, BELIEVE me! It may take a few hours to kick in, but it will! Drink plenty of water with it, otherwise you will be dehydrated and not know it. CM gives you diarrhea. Good luck, hope this helps!

answers:

You still could be lactose intolerant…. Just taking away dairy for one day won’t give you a definite answer. You need to see a doctor and see an internal medicine specialist (someone who specializes in digestion issues) to pinpoint exactly what is wrong. I’d suggest going to a family doctor or walk-in clinic and ask them to refer you to someone. As for what you can do right now, you should drink 6-8 glasses of water a day, and make sure you eat fruits and veggies, whole grains etc. And stay off junk food and processed foods (they’re really hard on your digestion and can just irritate your symptoms). But please go see a specialist – you’re not gonna get an accurate diagnosis off of yahoo answers.
