For a while I have lost my appetite due to a constant nauseous feeling. The nauseous feeling would be really strong after I would eat even a little. In the past week I've not eaten much, my lower abdomen is really painful and has a tightening, sharp sensation, which causes me to have chills. I'm constantly tired, I have a very painful lower back and the pain spreads to the upper back. Also whenever I would try to eat, it feels as though something is stuck in my chest and the pain radiates to my back. My body feels weak, and even walking causes me to feel sick, dizzy at times and pain in my abdomen.

The nausea has been quite constant for around 2 months but wasn't as bad. Recently it's become worse, and my abdomen feels really tight with sharp pains, my lower and upper back are very sore, and I've lost my appetite completely.
