Help it's like my body is rejecting food I don't know what to do 😔

Hi there,

Hope your all ok and not suffering too much.

I'm just after a bit of help I am at my lowest right now with the pain being incredible hard to get by.

Since Friday I have hardly been able to eat, today I have had a very small plate (4 forkfuls) of pasta with the children at work and now my stomach is doing somersaults and I am crippled in even more pain than before I usually have my tens machine on intensity 1 at work I have it on intensity 5 and it's not even touching the pain.

Please help I'm seriously at my wits end I don't know what to do or where to turn next.

Joely x

You should try go to your GP to get referred to a dietician. I get like this every few weeks where there's days (between 3-5) that I can't keep anything down. My dietician prescribed me build up drinks for the days I'm unable to stomach things to ensure my body is still getting nutrients x

Thank you I'm going to try and get back in the doctors. From a week ago today I can't eat anything as the pain is too bad I wish I could rule out one thing but it's a combination of everything so I'm really struggling at the minute x

I had asked my doctor if he could give me anything for the days I can't keep anything down and he advised doctors can't, so just asked to be referred to someone who could. I've had several appointments with the dietician, each time she weighs me just to ensure I've not lost any more weight. The drinks aren't the nicest but come in a variety of flavours. My doctor was able to prescribe me medication for the sickness which seemed to help so maybe ask if there's anything he/she can give you - I don't have any left or I would have given you the name of them! Hope you get on ok and feel better soon x
