Just recently i've almost lost my appetite completely. In my upper abdomen there is a constant dull pain. The best way I can describe the pain is hunger pains. It's incredibly hard to get myself to eat anything now and i only eat about half a meal a day. About a week before this i had a series of small headaches for two weeks and the lymph nodes on the back of my neck were all swollen and hurt a lot. They all died down and now i have this stomach problem. Just today my throat has started to hurt a lot too. I consulted my local doctor about the headaches and he brushed it off as a virus or infection, but didn't give me anything for it. Could the stomach problems be linked to the headaches and swollen lymph nodes? Please get back to me as soon as possible.
