I'm the queen of silly questions today, but since my last one was answered so superbly, thought I'd throw out another.
I've felt hungry before, we all have, no? I know the mashing empty stomach feeling , the shakes and the abdo feelings that go with it and I know a vague nausea's usually present when it gets to extremes too. The thing is, for the last few days I've had stomach pain and nausea every few hours (minus the shakes or low blood sugar feeling that usually tips me off, because admittedly I'm not great at hunger signals allll the time, hence the question) and it doesn't feel like hunger at ALL , but have discovered that when I eat something it goes away for an hour or two.
I'm admittedly making a dietary shift, away from gluten, but since my parents avoid it etc I've only eaten it in small amounts out while out of home, out of habit, so I doubt it's some kind of withdraw. I haven't added anything else to my diet (in fact, I've taken away daily soy latte/soy milk, coz that made me feel strange despite loving the stuff). Someone said it could be butterflies and eating gave my stomach 'something else to do' , hence temporary relief. I don't know.
Since I can't eat all day (not concerned about weight, I'm barely 'healthy' but very healthy in iron levels etc. however my job means I get lunch and that's it , like the rest of the working world) the way I used to as a student, I need to do something about this.
If it's hunger, I guess I'll eat bigger meals. I just don't see how it'd feel different to the last 25 years of hunger, is all. Or.. meh. I don't know. Any help appreciated.
