    Unexplained Sickness
    An_224655 posted:
    For the past two weeks I have had sudden sharp pains that from from my abdomen through my back after I eat. It doesn't matter what I eat (even crackers cause it). My body temperature increases, I feel nauseous, pain shoots up both sides and through my back (lower back as well), the pains are also in my abdominal region. This is usually followed by diarrhea. After a few hours after eating and using the restroom, this pain subsides. In the meantime, I have lost weight without doing anything to cause it, I have had frequent headaches (more severe than usual), I become dizzy and feel tired but cannot sleep and sometimes lack concentration. Ideas?
