If you noticed

Hello all you wonderful viewers and Toy Box people.   Yesterday was a bad day for me.   As you may have noticed I posted a lot from my phone.   I spent a lot of time either in bed or miserable and not following much news.  When I post a lot from my phone or pad that shows I am not at the computers.  I could be in bed or at a doctors office, and yes I am still reading news even then.  

I was having nausea all day.   I barely ate, in the morning I had two hard boiled eggs and toast, at 2 PM I had a Scottie salad.  A Scottie salad is lettuce and white thick sliced thrice washed mushrooms, all topped off with dressing.   Then I went to bed until 3 AM this morning.  

We do not know why I am having this sickness to my stomach and feeling like I am going to vomit, with pain  lower / below the breast bone.   I was able to force the doctor to deal with the other long time issues and as this is a new one that surfaced mostly this summer I will force him to deal with it in February if it continues.  There is a lot of speculation on Ron’s part, especially as it goes away when I lay down.    Everything from an ulcer to a hernia to it being something caused by my allergies / medications.   I did manage to stay up late on the night Ron was officiating at the wedding, but other than being over tired I don’t think it hurt me much.   

I hope to be able to put a lot more time in on the computer today.   It is Sunday morning news show day.   So after that I hope to not only spend time with the comments but to look over other peoples blogs.   It is 66 degrees out side at my place, and my office is 75.6 with all the windows open.  Ron is up so all the house windows are open not just my office, including the kitchen door.   One of the greatest things we did on the remodel was add a screen door to the kitchen door which really added to the air flow.   I am not sure why so many homes do not have them here.    Talk with everyone later.   Hugs

    • Hello Polly. Thank you. Last night was a bad night for me with both nightmares and pain. Today I have just been very tired. I think I am slept out for a while right now. Ron has been watching videos on my symptoms as he is the medical one in the family. Nan sent me a comment Ron read over and agreed with about the symptoms. I got a call from a doctor today I fired and that really upset me. I had agreed to see a different doctor in the same office as long as I had nothing to do with the first doctor. Then today their office called and told me the first doctor has gone through my labs and I exploded. I demanded he have no further access to my chart and repeated I fired that doctor, a right you have as the patient. I noticed their office went into the patient portal and immediately removed the doctor from everything of mine. The new doctor I will see in February is there instead. Hopefully I will get some answers then. Hugs

    • Hello Keith. Thanks. It is hard to figure out. I just want to sleep all the time. I have other symptoms but I can still stay at the computer mostly with them, but the fatigue makes it hard to spend more than a few hours up at a time, so I am falling farther behind in the blogs I want to go to and read. Hugs


    • Hello David. Thank you. It is going to take a few months but we should have some answers in February. To help the bloating and abdominal pain I have stopped drinking carbonated beverages, only having a soda every few days. The pain, nausea, and eating trouble is not gone away but the bloating and vomiting has for the most part with the stopping of carbonated drinks. I ate this morning a small amount, but have not been able to eat the rest of the day. but maybe I will lose some weight. It is worth trying. Hugs

    • Hello Cagjr. This problem has been on and off for nearly 4 years. It maybe have been life long depending on what we find. The new stuff is the nausea, bloating, abdominal pain, and overwhelming fatigue. Right now the fatigue is keeping me from doing much and enjoying life. I slept most of today and since this afternoon I have been drinking a lot of caffeine to do what I love, answer comments and read news. I may be a bit knackered tomorrow, but I was determined not to go back to bed. This morning I got up at 3:30 Am. At 8 AM I took my shower and it was all I could do to not go back to bed. Sadly I was so tired I did shortly go back to bed. I am fighting To stay up as much as possible. Hugs


  • Scottie, you may already know this, but …

    People with indigestion may have one or more of the following symptoms:

    Early fullness during a meal. You haven’t eaten much of your meal, but you already feel full and may not be able to finish eating.
    Uncomfortable fullness after a meal. Fullness lasts longer than it should.
    Discomfort in the upper abdomen. You feel a mild to severe pain in the area between the bottom of your breastbone and your navel.
    Burning in the upper abdomen. You feel an uncomfortable heat or burning sensation between the bottom of your breastbone and your navel.
    Bloating in the upper abdomen. You feel an uncomfortable sensation of tightness due to a buildup of gas.
    Nausea. You feel as though you want to vomit.

    Indigestion has many possible causes. Often, indigestion is related to lifestyle and may be triggered by food, drink or medication. Common causes of indigestion include:

    Overeating or eating too quickly
    Fatty, greasy or spicy foods
    Too much caffeine, alcohol, chocolate or carbonated beverages
    Certain antibiotics, pain relievers and iron supplements

        • Hello Nan. I am on Protonix daily for indigestion and I take over the counter 10 mg Famotidine occasionally at night. I was taking it nightly but the doctor wanted me to try not taking it. It seems not to have worked. I have every symptom you wrote. I will be addressing this issue with the doctor in February. It was an occasional problem before, but now it is constant. This morning I was up at 3 AM because my stomach was burning so bad. I have slept most of today and really have no energy. But this will pass. It always has before. Thanks for the info. Now that I understand it I can get the doctor to take it more seriously. Hugs


          • If you’re taking Famotadine over-the-counter, is it actually Pepcid or another “commercial” histamine-2 blocker? I’m suggesting it as a prescription. I take 20 mg twice-a-day and it works wonders!

            Based on some internet reading, Protonix actually can cause side effects like you have mentioned: gas, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, headaches, stomach and joint pain, and dizziness. Famotadine only lists a couple of these.

            I know you won’t be able to see a doc until February … which really sucks … but if there’s any way you can get a Famotadine Rx sooner — and get off the Protonix — I think you would definitely benefit.

            • Hello Nan. The doctor suggested Pepcid AC 20 mg. Ron looked up the ingredients and got this generic equivalent. When the doctor suggest trying to stop taking the extra I did, and then the symptoms started. Now I am going to add the generic Pepcid back in.

              I have been taking Protonix for a decade with no troubles. And changes in diet are helping. Today I had no trouble with stomach pain or burning, but again last night I took the Famotidine and this morning my Protonix.

              Yesterday I ate a small bit at 3:30 and went to bed an hour later. I will have to just keep track of what and how much I eat and when I go to bed. But to be honest the stomach problems are not as annoying as the fatigue is. I am ready to go back to bed now and it is not even noon. Yesterday I did go back to bed in the morning, got up a few hours later and took a shower. After my shower I was feeling like I wanted to go back to bed again. It is nuts. Hugs.


              • Thanks for the extra info re: the medications.

                As for the tiredness … has Ron done any research on why you’re experiencing this? it might have something to do with circadian rhythm. Have you always gotten up so early? Or is this a fairly new routine? It’s been shown that shift workers often have sleep problems and associated health problems so it might be worth looking into. It could mean adjusting your sleep patterns.

                • Hello Nan. I have always woken up early in the AM and gotten tired early in the evening. I got into a retinue of waking up around 4 or 5 AM and going to bed at 8 or 9 PM. Now I get so tired between 4 and 5 PM I can not focus or stay up. In fact I am struggling to stay up right now at 4:12 PM. Most days I wake around 3:20 or 3:30 AM. Some times earlier. I have my alarm set for 4 AM. It seems most days now I have to go back for a nap around 8 AM and sometimes I get so tired I go to bed for the night at 3PM. I have not worked shift hours since the early 1990’s. Right now it is the getting so tired I can’t even think that is so hard to deal with. Hugs
