I asked a stomach-related question awhile ago, and some of you gave me some pretty good insight, so I figured I'd post again.
First off, I'm calling my doctor's office for an appointment today - I'm definitely not just relying on you ladies, but you're all pretty wise so I figured I'd see what you think!
I'm not sure who remembers, but awhile back I posted about some stomach problems I was having. I was feeling nauseous and having to go to the bathroom after almost everything I ate. I've never had a very good digestive system, but it was usually just processed crap, and burgers and things like that (from restaurants) that would give me stomach aches. But a couple months ago, everything I ate started to make my stomach hurt. You ladies suggested IBS, and a few other things - my doctor deduced that it was maybe just a bug or something, and put me on something with magnesium in it. It was really helping and I got to the point where I could eat pretty much anything. I finished the prescription about 10 days ago, and I was feeling pretty good!
But then Wednesday afternoon I started to feel sick again. I figured it was probably just something I ate (I'm a sucker for processed food I really shouldn't eat) but I went home sick from work anyway. I ended up waking up nauseous and with terrible stomach pain on Thursday and Friday, so I stayed home those days too. I don't like staying home from work... I know there will be a lot of catch-up when I miss one day, let alone two and a half, but I just felt like garbage.
I came back to work yesterday and today, but I'm not really feeling better. Let's see...
- I'm feeling nauseous, especially in the mornings
- It seems worse when I don't get a good sleep, but I feel crappy regardless
- EVERYTHING I eat makes my stomach hurt
- I feel gassy and bloated, and I have to use the bathroom more than usual
- Despite not eating much on Thursday/Friday while I was home sick, I managed to gain weight rather than lose it
- Taking the bus to/from work is basically like torture, since I get nauseous on the bus as it is, and now it's just a million times worse
- I can't stop burping! I'm guessing that's from the gassiness, but it's really gross!
I think that's pretty much it.
Also, I know I'm not pregnant, so that can pretty much be cancelled out as a possiblity. I haven't had sex since May, so if I was pregnant, I would be showing by this point and I would have more symptoms. I'm bloated and a lot bigger around the middle than I'm used to, but pregnancy just wouldn't make sense.
Seriously, if anyone has any insight for what might be going on, I'd really appreciate it!
