for about a year and a half, i've been getting really bad stomach aches almost every day
and i mean bad. like agony. anyways, i've never been to the doctor, because i've got scars everywhere from SI and i'm terrified they'll want to do an ultrasound or something. i'm also EDNOS if that helps anyone with helping me. I usually don't eat anything until nighttime when i binge insanely. The stomach aches started before this though.

i've been trying to self-diagnose myself. and even some of my friends and family are trying too. lol

possible causes :
-food intolerences (lactose, gluten, fructose, etc)
-some kind of tumor in my ovaries
-not drinking enough water
-eating excessive amounts of food/binging, stretching stomach
-malnutrtition, like the kids in 3rd world countries with bloated tummies.

my latest theory is: i think i'm psychosomatic.
meaning i'm under alot of stress, and i turn it into a visible symptom.

anyone know anyhting about being psychosomatic?
or know anything about stomach aches?

thanks for your reply.
i haven't purged in a few months, but maybe i'm still getting the problems from it.

yeah, i'm really considering the doctor, just a little freaked out by the whole thing.

hopefully it will get better, it's not very pleasant.

xxx thankyou.

Ah, well you didn't mention the purging in this entry so I thought I was wrong to say that. :) Yeah, like I said that could definitely cause problems with your stomach...

Excuse my last comment, I noticed you didn't say anything about purging... just binging at night time. That too could be causing your stomach aches though. As I said in my last comment, I couldn't imagine how bad my stomach aches would be if I didn't eat (generally) normally. Malnutrition is definitely a possibility since you have an ED. Also, you mentioned that the stomach aches started before the ED... which means you could just have a sensitive stomach, and in that case whatever is wrong with your stomach your ED is obviously not helping at all...

I would personally see a doctor. Doctors have seen everything so I wouldn't worry about the scars... they're not there to judge you, they're there to help you. I hope you feel better soon.
