General chatter - hungry 24-7

View Full Version : hungry 24-7

one of the main reasons I binge and am sometimes tempted to purge is that im hungry almost 24-7. I also lack the energy to excersise. It seems I always have a headache or are in some sort of pain which often disguise itself as hunger. I'm seeing a doctor soon, but I'm not sure what to do in the mean time or if its even normal...

the pains I get in my head are in the back and they have been so bad I was almost in tears, I maintain a lowgrade fever but lately its been 100-101ish, my ribs hurt so bad its sometimes hard to even stand, and injuries from a year ago hurt once again (to give people an idea of what i deal with)

if anyone experiences something similar please share because its kind of getting creepy.

I am not exactly sure what is going on but you need a complete blood count with differentials to rule out a few things. The low grade fever and rib pain bother me, have you had any night sweats or noticed that you bleed or bruise more easily lately?

yes that's exactly whats happening(the bruising), I also have these odd dreams paired with the night sweats and I wake up periodically like this.

How old are you and how long have you been having these symptoms?

17 and for a long say over a year and it occasionally peeks like this. This past month has been **** and my doctors think its in my head. At first I believed them but the fact i feel like im 17 going on 70 I think is a red flag

It could be nothing, and let me stress that! It could be a simply not getting enough of a vitamin or too much, being stressed out, hormones, etc. But, these symptoms worry me because they can be signs of leukemia. I was debating whether or not to even mention it, but you need to make sure your doctors rule this out, it can be done with just some routine blood work. Have you lost weight recently or have any other weird things going on?

no worries, believe me google has shown me some scarry things and i know to consult a doctor before i even commence the worries lol. Of course it could be nothing, but even if its as simple as stress I don't like living like this and i want something done.

and yeah... hair sheds a lot,

5. ill all the sudden feel like i have a cold coming on for like an hour, then feel fine (maybe not "fine"...but as i felt before)

Ugh I'm sorry you are having all this mess so young! My best advice is to get a good doctor who takes you seriously and investigates thoroughly. My rule is that if a patient says they have it, they have it, and whether it's "in their head" or not, it needs to be fixed!

This might seem totally random, but I experience some of your symptoms whenever I'm around mold due to allergies. Have you had an allergy panel done that includes molds recently? Might be something to look into.

you know, ive never had an allergy panel done ever. interesting
