I have recently been diagnosed with both Lymes Disease and Acute Gastritis. I have already set up an appointment with my GP to start on anitbiotics for Lymes and am not very concerned with that matter.
My problem is the fact that the two ailment combined are a real energy sucker, I have been missing a ton of work due to this. Lymes is known to drain the body of energy as it is,and the fact I cant stomach anything of high nutritional value doesnt help my constant exauhstion. I am getting by drinking ensure, apple juice, and eating the occasional boiled egg for the time being. Non of which upsets my stomach beyond a couple extra gurgles and belches.
I am completely aware that there is no quick cure for either of these ailments. I am simply seeking help in finding ways to get back my night time sleep schedule. I can handle the symptoms during the day usually with no problem... these late night flare ups are impossible to get back to sleep from (if I achieve getting to sleep in the first place). Please anyone with anyhelp to offer in the way of avoiding or soothing night time gastritis flare ups I need your help. I cant afford to lose my job over an upset stomach!
Would also like to ask if feeling the effects of gastritis not only in your stomach but in your intestines as well is common.
I am currenty taking zantac 150 twice a day. No smoking, drinking, or solid food beyond what I have mentioned.
Thanks in advanced for any help you may offer.
