I haven't. I'm still here. And I'm battling my stomach issues more now than ever. It's gone from once a month to now once a week and this last bout was only after three days. I'm not scheduled for my appointment with a gastroenterologist until Jan. 5th, but I don't think I can wait that long.
I'm trying to think of all of the possibilities: irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's Disease (probably not), colitis, colon cancer (probably not), etc. etc. Of course, I immediately think something horrible, but I really have no clue what's wrong with me. I don't necessarily have bouts after I eat, so that makes me think IBS is out, but hard to tell.
I'm just tired of this. Tired of evenings wasted because of either being in the bathroom or feeling miserable on the couch. I'm tired of feeling uncomfortable with my stomach all of the time. Some say this type of thing can be caused by stress. Well whatever this is, it's giving me stress.
Working out has been non-existent. My diet hasn't been horrible because I'm trying to peg if any of this is diet-related (which I'm not seeing any patterns). My weight has maintained which, whatever. Right now, my goal is to figure out what's going on with all of this.
So, that's my update. I'll keep you posted as I know more.
