Hey guys.
     I have a question. If you ever get severly hungry, like, reeallly really hungry, do you ever get those horrible cramping pains that are in a horseshoe shape around your whole body? (Basically, under your ribs and down and then your whole area underneath your bellybutton) I came home from school today absolutely starving, had those pains and took a Gas-Ex (simethecone) and it helped a bit, but I was just wondering if that happened to anyone else.
    This morning was little rough. Rougher on my anxiety tho than my bowels.  I started getting those bad cramps and foul gas you all are probably familiar to right before the D hits. Well, fortunatly for me (sarcasm), I had a math test to take during this.  Right before we started it hit me that I HAD to go to the bathroom..but I couldnt raise my hand and say "teacher, I have to go have D now." so I used the "i feel like im going to be sick" exscuse and made a run for it. The D came (and how it burned. :( my poor hemmies! haha) and then I felt better..after lunch I was a bit crampy but then it went away.  But now, after eating an afternoon snack because I was STARVING, I now have the chills, a bit of nausea(but kind of hungry at the same time..), and kinda weird feeling intestines.  I feel like my intestines are vibrating. sad   I've read Keriamons gallbladder you think its the gallbladder? I'm so confused with whats going on I dont even know what to think anymore! ahh!  Anything would be helpful..

heya blondie, i hear ya

I've used the whole ' i feel sick' line when i've really needed the loo! - i dunno why it's okay to say that you feel like you're gonna chuck up, but it's not okay to say that you've got an upset stomach! :-)

Hi blondie,
What I think you need to do is basically "calm down" your intestines. After such episodes, you need to give your bowels a rest by eating really bland light foods otherwise you will be caught in a vicious circle. Was your poo yellowish? That could possibly mean bile due to a bad gallbladder but your burning could be other things as well. Irritation will cause burning as well as if you ate anything with certain spices. Your symptoms could be your gallbladder but its hard to tell because what you are describing could be classic IBS symptoms as well.
Hugs, Des

I am so far displaced from my natural feelings of hunger and not hungry. When I had my GB attacks I would get sort of nauseated when I was actually hunrgy, so I learned to eat a small amount when I started to feel bad to see if that made me feel better; if it did, I ate more. Because I had a hard time feeling hungry without feeling sick, I ended up eating when I didn't feel anything in particular to preempt the sick feeling. Now I don't even know what it's like to eat only when I feel hungry; after 5 years I got into a strong habit of eating fairly regualry regardless.

You may feel more comfortable in the future if you talk to each of your teachers individually and alone and tell them that you have have bowel problems and that they haven't exactly figured out what's wrong with you yet, so you don't really have any medicines you can take to help. Make sure they understand that when you ask to be excused to go to the restroom, you need to go right that minute, even if it's in the middle of a test, and that you might be in there a while or even need to go home if you can't get the diarrhea to stop. I can't believe that a teacher would give you a hard time about having to go to the bathroom on the spur of the moment if they know that you get sick frequently. If you have to, get a doctor to write up a little letter to the principal saying that you have a bowel condition that makes it necessary for you to make sudden and frequent and long trips to the restroom and that they must let you do this in order to keep you from getting worse sick. That way the info will be on file and no one can accuse you of trying to skip.
