Was my stomach digesting itself? - August 26th 2011, 07:09 AM

Ok so I was at band camp for 4 days and the 3rd day i was there I got this really bad pain in my lower stomach that felt like it was eating itself, i was extremely nauseous too, and when 2 of my coaches came to find me and my friend because we hadn't shown up at practice (i could barely stand and walk, so my other roommate went down to practice by herself) i was lying on the floor crying it hurt sooooo bad. And i spent about 7 hours a day active and only had about 1,000 calories probably perday (the food there was terrible) and anyways could that have been my body saying that it needed food? My coach got me a granola bar and after i ate it the ache was still there but not as bad as before.

So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

Hi pinke567.

It's most likely that the pain was due to either extreme hunger or gastrointestinal upset caused by eating a different standard of food.

Do not be concerned about this if, since returning home, your digestive system has returned to normal.

Might be from standing at attention too long.
It does sound like you were not eating enough for the amount of physical exercise you were doing. When you go home, I bet you'll feel better.
