So what’s the verdict from the Good Doc Naz? She thinks I have an IBS situation – which is what is making my stomach hurt, plus the occasional vomitus – which is brought on by stress and anxiety. We’re going to watch things, but I went home with a bunch of meds, which if you know me, just thrilled me to no end. [/sarcasm]
What am I laden with, you ask? Nexium to take in the short run, just to reduce the amount of acid I’ve got going on in the belly and help keep the vomiting reflux down… Levsin for the stomach cramps when they get riled up… and Ativan to take before Big Events, to reduce the stress. I’m only to take a quarter to half of one of those, which is good, as I’m super sensitive to stuff like that, since I never take anything like downers. O_o
For those keeping count, that’s 3 pills daily plus two “emergency” pills. Pills pills pills pills pills. I just want to feel better. *sigh*
Other things I’m looking at are diet – of course, because nothing is ever easy when it comes to food and me – and even more things to regulate my stress levels. I see more yoga in my future, which isn’t a bad thing.
I just want to be well.
