Question: Cant drink fluids - feeling drowsy

 cloud01y - Wed Sep 22, 2004 6:10 pm


I have not been feeling well for quite some time now and i was woundering if you could prehaps know what may be wrong?
I seam to be feeling very tired all the time, feel completely lazy and have very bad consentration, and cant sleep unless its after midnight.

I cant drink much, when i drink the area below my ribs instantly begin to hurt very badly and forces me to stop drinking more.
I seam to be going to the tiolet alot too(to pee) but when i do hardly anything comes out, even if i was feeling desprate.

also, these may be unrelated, but when i drink i always start to cough and bring up some katar(is that spelt right?) and i feel sick most of the time.
I have been to the doctors before but she told me to ignore the pains, but i cant really.
I have had several blood tests but they said nothing apeared to be wrong in them :x

I have been having this problems for about 4months (but i have been noticing iv been needing to goto the tiolet more often for about a year, as its gratudaly got worse)

I went to the doctors the otherweek and i told her about it, but she just looked at my old records and told me to ignore the pain. But the problem i used to have was something with my stomoch as i could not eat, but thats fine now and i can eat fine.
