Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Anyone have a clue?

For the past few weeks (about three) I've been tired all the time, moody as all get out, I've had random headaches and I have had right-sided pain near my lower lung and ribcage. Here's the thing, though: I've been losing my appetite, too. Yes, there's a lot of stressful situations going on, but the majority of the situations have calmed down quite a bit in the last few weeks and I know that these symptoms aren't because of Stress. What I would like to know is: aside from being pregnant (because I know that I am not), has anyone had these symptoms and what did you do to take care of them?

Most of it just sounds hormonal. The right-sided pain has some other possibilities, one of which is a gall-bladder problem. (I worked for surgeons and saw a lot of gall-bladder cases.) If the pain is strong and persistent, you should definitely see your doctor, because whatever the cause, it could be serious.
Uh.. I didn't think about that, V.  Thanks.  If I keep getting pains, I'll definitely see the doctor about it.
I'm not really sure what kind of answer you were expecting. No one but a doctor can diagnose your symptoms. No one here can tell you what is going on with your body.
