As some symptoms went away, I’ve gained a new one . . sighs . . Ladies have you ever been severely bloated where it looks like you’re pregnant? I first noticed it at work yesterday. I knew I wasn’t feeling well because my stomach was making a lot of noise and I was belching a lot. As I was in the staff lounge, I happened to look down and see my stomach before my feet. I freaked out! and even a friend at the job looked at me and asked “What’s going on?” I responded “I don’t know” quickly got my cup of tea and wrapped my cardigan tighter around my stomach before anyone else noticed. A few minutes later, I felt the cramps and took a powerful painkiller that made me feel so good for the remainder of the work day lol The bloating eventually went away, but later last night it happened again.
I know it was probably the lunch I had, a chicken bruschetta sandwich on multi-grain bread with a side of melon fruit was probably a bad idea. I plan not to order such a meal again, but I am worried since I was discharged just a few days ago. I’m hesitant to tell my GI, I don’t want to go back to the hospital 😦 Anyway, I made an appointment with a nutritionist that specializes with GI disorders/diseases next week. After talking to her on the phone, I am very hopeful that she can help me create some type of meal plan or diet because I’m sick of throwing out food. For the past month, no matter what I ate irritated my stomach. It would be nice to enjoy eating again.
Remaining hopeful and taking one day at a time :).
