On Thursday the 20th of October, I felt normal. No unsettled tum, no panic. Until then, I hadn’t realised just how ill I was feeling constantly.
I had two days of being able to get on with my life without having to worry about waves of nausea or groaning belly. I ate what I wanted and filled my belly. (Belly filling was one of the causes of the nausea.)
But now my misery has returned.
I feel like there are stones in my stomach and I’m constantly on the verge of hot sweats. My tummy and bowel groan and I go from zero to hungry to sick within half an hour.
I thought it was anxiety.
We tested for pregnancy, just to make sure. Negative.
Now I’m pretty sure there is something physiological going on as well as psychological. We’ve done a spot of research and the most likely causes are hormones and food intolerance.
Maybe this thing would be easier to deal with if I could just cut out milk for example and feel ok? Problem is that it comes and goes so it would be hard to tell exactly what works.
Can’t I just have normal back?
