Im not sure how much knowledge about my situation but I'm going insane not being able to train. I am a college football player and powerlifter I love lifting and training but since June I've had digestive distress it started with constipation and I went to the ER and the doctor confirmed i was "full of crap." I took some stool softeners and was finally able to go but not big happy and healthy like I was accustomed to and not as often. I upped my water in take and fiber. Still unable to go back to normal I also had no hunger. A few weeks later I developed a cough shortness of breath and runny nose. Both went away except the short of breath. So at this point I had no appetite, small bowel movements, and shortness of breath still pushing it in the gym and on the field. By this time i was no longer taking any supps at this time. I also lost about 17 pounds, went from 237 to 220. I went to a walk in free clinic because my family is really poor and deals with financial struggles due to single mother and five siblings. Fall football came and I went through all this our crazy workouts and still no hunger but still ate three times a day and was able to see improvements in my bowel movements and was happy now just had no appetite and shortness of breath the week school starts I go with my girlfriend and sister to eat at Cheese cake factory and boom burning in my chest and stomach ace and bloating that went away after a while. SO now I have missed the first three games of the season because of this and i now weigh about 205-210 and lost lots of muscle. Its so annoying I am seeing a specialist and natural doctor this week. I am only eating veggies, protein, and fruits. Veggies include lettuce purple cabbage organic baby spinach, kale. Protein is organic free range eggs, organic chicken and turkey and distilled water is all I drink. My current symptoms are constipation, no appetite, dark urine recently, shortness of breath, spots on the back of my hands look kinda like liver sports (but im only 21) and on my index finger purple looking spots that look funky and peeled a little, and dry skin on my bicep and tricep region. So any suggestions or advice would be really welcomed please !!! my family depends on me I cant fail. I will not let them down and I need the gym back .
