I have been super stressed out these past 3wks and have had no appetite what so ever. And yet @ the sam time I am also feeling super bloated, my stomach physically hurts and there's a burning sensation running up and down my stomach.  Does anyone know of any thing I can take to feel better or give me an appetite?  It's really strange because I also feel full all day!

The only thing I can think of is to try something like Gas-X to reduce the bloating. If you can get the bloating down your apatite may improve. If you haven't mentioned that pain to your docs, then perhaps you should.

I hope you get better soon.

I feel a whole lot more the way I do now than I did a little while ago.

I used to have the same problem and added fiber to my diet. There are several fiber supplements that will help but I found the best for me was the fiber one bars. They were really good and one bar a day help get rid of the gas and bloating. I am now doing fine without the bars because during the time I was using them I began doing exercises to work those abdominal core muscles and that seemed to help move the gas out as I exercised. I am still doing the exercises every day and it has helped with a number of problems.

I am wondering if you should talk to your doctor about a possible bacterial overgrowth. The way you describe how you are feeling is exactly what I was feeling when diagnosed twice with bacterial overgrowth. Usual treatment is something like Cipro for 10 days. Also, make sure you take a good probiotic at least two hours after your antibiotics. Good luck!

Thank you all for your responses.  I think adding the fiber may help.  I have my infusion tomorrow and see my doc monday so I will definately be letting him know of my symptoms.  I will also look into the bacteria overgrowth.  I will keep you all updated.  On a positive note today I am feeling a little better.
