For the past couple of weeks I've only been able to eat really small amounts of food before feeling really full. I've lost 6lbs in two weeks. Yesterday I literally FORGOT to have any breakfast, had to remind myself to eat lunch which was a jacket potato with cheese on top and I ate most of that but then felt stupidly bloated for ages afterwards. This was at 12pm - it was 6pm when I next thought about eating so all I'd had that day was a jacket spud. I was starting to feel a little peckish, DP ordered 2 kormas and one rice to share and I could only eat half of my portion before I started to feel sick.
Today I had cheese on toast for breakfast and I've just had a little pot of cous cous and feel like I've had a 3 course dinner.
I've also been told I'm looking really pale and "not well at all".
What do you reckon?? the weight loss is great but I'd rather not lose it through illness! I'm 5ft 10in and now weigh 10st 10lbs so its not as if I've overweight to start with.
Dizzyness almost everytime I stand up and a very strange pain that comes and goes ...
It's on the right side lower abdomen (under the hip bone) and comes on in bursts. It feels like a trapped nerve pain but it's quite intense, dull and makes me bend over when it comes on. At one point it was doing it 3 or 4 times a day, then it stopped completely so I let it go. Now its starting to come back, just once or twice a day though.
Also, nausea after eating. I had a pork sandwhich the other day and very nearly threw it back up straight afterwards. I don't really think a sandwich is over indulging so I just don't understand it.
I was also going to add that these can be symptoms of ovarian cancer. I had these symptoms, had a scan, turned out to be a very large non-cancerous cyst but they took it very seriously and operated within 3 weeks.
You really must get an appointment, feeling bloated and full after eating very small amounts is a key sign. Please don't delay.
