Thread: Stomach cancer? I need help.

    Stomach cancer? I need help.

    This might sound weird, but I feel like something is wrong with my stomach or liver or something. A quick background. Iím almost 21 years old. Iíve had health anxiety for a few years, also OCD. Iíve convinced myself Iíve had some pretty bizarre diseases, but this feels different. Iím also a new father so little sleep doesnít help the stress lol. But basically the last 2 months Iíve had bad nausea and migraines (Iíve had migraines almost my whole life cause of a car crash, just recently got an MRI a month ago and it was negative). But two of those times Iíve been nauseous Iíve actually puked. Iíve never puked from a migraine before so it was weird. One of them woke me up while I was sleeping and I puked and felt better. Iíve also had a sore throat almost all winter, and some stomach pain. Sometimes itís really sharp and intense, other times I have none. But a week ago I had an orange poop, like carrot orange, and no I didnít eat anything orange. It kinda freaked me out, and it wasnít diharrea either. Now today I had another slightest orange poop. Itís freaking me out, and I need some thoughts. I donít eat the healthiest either which doesnít help and I am getting better slowly and surely, but like I said none of this has ever happened before. I havenít been seen by a stomach specialist but my head and brain are fine, my heart and lungs are fine, and my doctor says Iím healthy. I havenít had any stomach or kidney/liver tests in like a year or so, so I think itís sometning with that.

    If you respond and read this, I want to thank you. You have no idea how much this helps me.

    Do you eat many tomato based products? Because that really changes the colours of things for me, even just tomato ketchup has been known to do it.

    headaches that make you vomit could be bad migraines, make an appointment with dr, also are you getting enough water as for orange poop



    • Having one orange stool with no other symptoms is most likely not a cause for worry.
    • Orange stools are often caused by eating red or orange foods.
    • Supplements containing beta-carotene and aluminum hydroxide can turn stools orange.
    • A lack of bile salts is one medical reason that can cause orange stool.





    Foods That Can Cause Orange Stool

    There are several common and benign reasons for passing orange stools that are not a cause for worry. Supplements and medications that can cause orange-colored stools include those containing beta-carotene (which is sometimes found in vitamin A) and aluminum hydroxide (which can be found in antacids).
    https://www.verywellhealth.com/what-...-stool-1942943 doesn't say anything about it being a symptom of stomach cancer.







    Foods that can cause orange stool include:



    • Any food with an artificial yellow or orange coloring
    • Apricots
    • Carrots
    • Cilantro
    • Collard greens
    • Fresh thyme
    • Kale
    • Sweet potatoes
    • Spinach
    • Turnip greens
    • Winter squash

    Hey!
    Well Iíve had headaches my whole life and doctors and myself believe itís due to the car accident I was in when I was younger which was pretty bad. However I just went to see a neurologist a month or two ago about them again and he ran some blood tests and a MRI and everything was normal. Iíve never puked from a headache before, or at least that I remember. It could be a possibility, but itíd be a first. For the orange poop I donít eat Ny of those food items listed or take any medication besides some Tylenol if my head hurts.

    Things always have a first time they happen or that we notice. Thatís not weird, just life. I would take some time and see how things go without getting worked up with things. As it goes the colour of the stool isnít concerning, normal is considered from shades of green all the way through to dark brown.

    Don't underestimate the ill effects of sleep deprivation! That could definitely be making your headaches worse. And, if they are from a car crash (so I assume something related to neck or back vs neurological - I get migraines from TMJ) a change in your posture holding the baby, sleeping poorly, extra tension in your neck or shoulders from being tired and stressed, etc... could definitely do it. I didn't have a single migraine in my life until I had a baby.
