I've Hit a Road Block....My body hates me...

Don't worry....not mentally. Physically.

I still haven't made it to my chiro to get my back adjusted. I'm doing okay with Advil and ice as well as a periodic massage from hubby, but I'm in need of an adjustment. My chiro's and my schedules just haven't meshed.

To add to it, I stayed home from work today. This may get you are forewarned. The last three months, I've had some gastrointestinal issues. In August, I went to urgent care as I had some stomach pain, nausea and tiny bowel movements. The doc took an X-Ray and found that my upper large intestine was "backed up" so to speak. So I took magnesium citrate to get things moving. I did and things were okay.

Fast forward to three weeks ago. I stayed home with the same issue and also had dry heaves with it. I forgot to mention that this wakes me up during the night and I'm in the bathroom once an hour for about five hours. Hence, no sleep. And no sleep and teaching a class of 20 challenging 4th graders does not work well. I drank a lot of water and it seemed to pass.

Well, last night, it happened again. When I went to bed, my stomach felt weird...full-like, but I ignored it and went to bed. 1 AM rolls around and I'm in the bathroom. This continued until about 5 AM when I proceeded to drive to school and get things ready for a sub since I knew I wasn't going to be teaching today.

I haven't had the bathroom issues during the day today but I still have a "full" feeling in my stomach. I even looked online for colonic massage (things kneading your stomach in the pattern of your intestine to try and get things "moving"). I haven't had much luck. I go to my regular doctor on Monday for my yearly physical so I'm going to talk to her about this tomorrow.

Right now, my head is hurting too and I think it's exhaustion and my body trying to figure out what's going on. Exercise hasn't happened this week as I'm trying to figure out what's going on and my energy level hasn't been there.

So, I'm still here...I'm just hoping I can get this figured out because it's getting kinda old.
