Bah humbug I've been sick. I had a slight upset stomach all last week, and on Saturday night (after my free meal) it decided to attack. Literally. Some of you may remember that I had a few stomach issues last year, and all sorts of tests to try and figure out what it was. Well on Saturday I had the stomach cramps again, and reflux and vomiting and diarrhoea. The pain was so bad that OH wanted to take me to the hospital, but I didn't want to go - honestly I didn't think I could sit in the car that long without a toilet nearby!
So about 4am Sunday morning the pain finally subsided, and I got a little rest. I went to the doctors on Sunday and he gave me a referral to have an Endoscopy to see if we can find out what's going on in there. I got given some drugs to take to see if they help, but I still had to have yesterday off work because my abdomen is still tender and sore, and the acid keeps coming up. The drugs are slowly working I think, but I'm having to sleep propped up on 3 pillows to keep the acid in my stomach and not in my chest.
So I had a weekend of basically no food - whatever I ate on Saturday came back out, and I couldn't eat at all on Sunday. Today I woke up hungry so I figure thats a good sign, even though my stomach is still tender. I have to be careful because silly things like a cup of tea seem to set it off again. I rang to book the Endoscopy yesterday and the soonest I can get in is the 23rd of August! That is ridiculous!!!
Anyway I have finally come to the realisation that free meals are no good for me - every single time I have one of these "attacks" is after a free meal and a glass or two of wine. Looks like I know what I've got to do - bye bye free meal & alcohol - at least for a while!
So no exercise for me for a few days until I get this under control - these things were sent to try us!
