Possible infection?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi. My daughter started nursery at the end of August and within a week our full house was unless with a cold/sick bug. It took us around 3 weeks to start to feel better but none of us seemed to be fully 100% (coughs here and there and blocked/runny noses) That carried on for a couple of weeks and then mid October the house was ill again. Me and my children had to go onto antibiotics for a chest infection (again this took us about 2/3 weeks to recover and we still were not feeling 100%. Just over 2 weeks ago, one night (Monday) I started to feel sick and when I tried to lie down I had to run to be sick (just the once) when I woke up the next morning I had to run to the toilet and had diarrhea and sick. This was just one occasion and then for the rest of the week I was unable to eat or drink, I had to force myself. By the Saturday I felt slightly better and even though I was eating, I could only manage 3/4 bites and felt very full and bloated after eating and was having very bad acid reflux and constantly burping. I saw my doctor on the Tuesday who prescribed fibrogel to help with going to the toilet as I was now constipated, Omeprazole for the acid reflux and something to help me eat. These did work however, the fibrogel caused me to have diarrhea again and I had a constant hard, bloated stomach. I was not happy with this so I saw my doctor again last Friday who prescribed buscopan for the bloating and requested a stool sample (i have yet to hand in as now constipation again) i handed in a urine sample as I noticed i was urinating a lot more which also came back clear. Over the last few days I have gradually started getting worse pains around my lower back, bottom of my stomach and hips. I have aches all over my body and a cough as also developed again (negative covid tests)... I have also noticed that my period has stopped (last period was the week my daughter started nursery) I have taken 3 pregnancy tests all which have been negative (I have only had 1 opportunity to become pregnant since my last period which was 10 weeks ago)...

I don't know if this is all connected or completely separate issues but I am worrying why I have not seemed to get over any infections/colds/virus/bugs in the last few months (i know children do pick everything up when they get together) but also the pains I am having in my stomach along with the missed periods and bloating and now also dealing with having constant pains throughout my body.
