Stomach pain

Hello. Just wondering if any one has experienced this or know what it could be.

Every morning I wake up and my stomach hurts, it feels like someone has beat me up (that’s the only way I can explain how the pain feels)

The last few days I haven’t really ate properly as in just not getting hungry.

I never sleep on my belly,I normally sleep on my back or sides.

A trip to the GP sounds like the best option, better than guessing at what might be going on.

I’ve been took into hospital a few times over my stomach and they have never found what’s wrong. A few months ago I was loosing weight and they didn’t know why but for the last few weeks my weight has remained the same

Could it be connected to your previous post ? - sounds possible ....

You might want to consider having your B12 levels checked. B12 deficiency could account for loss of weight and also stomach pain although of course they could be related to other things. Here is link which I have just picked randomly but there is plenty of information out there and the PAS forum will offer you advice and help if you need it :-

Do you also take Folic Acid or Folate with the B12 injections ? They work together in the body in an important way.

Nope,I had iron tablets but my body couldn’t cope with the side effects so I had to come of them

Folic Acid is B9 and should be taken with B12. Iron is different !

Everything you need to know about B12 Deficiency in the above link - do not rely on Docs. Please read and re-read - I had to in order to be well ! I now self-inject weekly. Docs will not be aware that B9/Folate works in the body with B12 - we have to learn for ourselves ....

Do you have Hashimoto's also called autoimmune thyroid disease diagnosed by high thyroid antibodies

Are you on Levothyroxine? If so how much

What are you most recent TSH, FT4 and FT3

Have you had vitamin D, folate and ferritin tested? Do you supplement any of these?

As you have B12 injections it's usually recommended to take vitamin B complex as well for the oftger B vitamins. Do you do this

Have you had full investigation for coeliac disease. Blood test? Or endoscopy?

If you have Hashimoto's then strictly gluten free diet is likely essential (even if negative for coeliac)

I’ve never even heard of that before, I’ve always suffered with low iron but I can’t take the tablets for it cause I have bad side effects. And with my B12 injections the doctors have never told me I need to take other stuff with it. I had a full blood count done last time and everything was fine except by liver but they said it was only slightly abnormal

Good news is I have woken yo today with no stomach pains, but I’m still not hungry. On Saturday I had two bites out of a burger and about 6 chips. On Sunday I had two bites out of half a toastie. Yesterday I didn’t eat at all and today up to now am still not hungry. Over the last 4 days I’ve had cups of tea with 2 sugars In and a can of Coca Cola a day so I’m still getting sugar in me. I just don’t get why I haven’t got an appetite
