This is going to be short. I’m not sure if I’ve written about this, but I’ve been having stomach and digestive issues since November. Including severe stomach and abdomen pain and not digesting food properly. I’ve switched to a gluten-free diet, which has helped tremendously. The thing is though if I do eat something with gluten whether it’s on purpose because once in a blue moon I lack self-control or if it’s on accident. When that happens I basically have a delayed reaction and then I’ll feel it for two days after the pain starts. Anyway, I recently ate something I shouldn’t have and now I’m having discomfort. This morning I woke up at 5 am and stayed up because I was in pain. So, since I’m not feeling well I really can’t do part of my routine. Basically working out and sitting at the table while I drink my coffee. I’ll have to rest for most of the day, which means I’ll be in bed instead of the living room where I do my work.
I got an endoscopy and it came back that I didn’t have celiac, but it did show that I had food still in my stomach after 16 hours of not eating. Which is not normal. It also came back showing I had inflammation in my stomach and esophagus. The doctor said to eat smaller meals, softer food, and eat more often throughout the day. When I follow that I’m fine, but when I stop that’s when the pain is more likely to occur. Anyway, it’s very irritating, and I just wanted to share what’s happening with my physical health.
