    Anything I can do since I can't really eat or drink anymore due to the pain I have.

    I have a condition which makes it hard for me to eat or drink since I am mostly in pain though. I think I almost can't make it anymore already. It is just too painful to even try to eat or drink. I don't know what to do. I mean I still want to live though. I don't think I can handle eating or drinking anymore. It's just too hard ya. What can I do about that. Anyone has any advice for me. Thanks.

    is your doctor not working with you on this? There are feeding tubes that can help though not knowing your exact disease/condition it's hard to say what might work best.

    It depends on the cause of the pain, but there are treatment options , such as a feeding tube as mentioned before.
    You really need to figure out what the cause is, perhaps working with a specialist can help to find out the cause while you are working on ways to keep your body fed.

    I'm really sorry for all the pain you're suffering but I doubt anyone on this forum is going to have too many more ideas than your doctor will be able to come up with. The fact is, you need to make your doctor fully and absolutely know how bad things have gotten and "spill you guts" and don't hold back. At that point you've effective made "your" problems, "his" problems as well. Hopefully, he (or if not him, someone else in his practice) will be able to come up with some options to deal with your pain and get you back to eating and drinking. Those are issues that need to be addressed right now! BTW, if you have any trouble getting an appointment with your doctor (I really hope they'd see you ASAP once they hear what's going on with you), let them know you'll be at the Emergency Room at ?? Hospital and he can proceed to keep tabs on you THERE. Since he's obviously too busy to see you now at his office! If you're able to get an appointment to see him in the very near future, please disregard the previous section marked in bold italics.

    I wish you all the best and please do your best to see someone as soon as possible. I think you'll be happy you did. Good Luck!
