Let me do a back story:
Occasional heartburn, but nothing extensive, maybe a couple hours a week if that.
Starting the Saturday before last I was feeling nauseous. Usually when I get that way I tend to start a fast and pop vitamin C each day. I felt like absolute crap for the 4.5 days I fasted. Feeling bloated, burping constantly, violent stomach pains. Breaking my fast with just tortilla chips made my stomach pain and nausea go away almost instantly. That night super bloated, but worked through it. Worked into food with tortilla soft shells, so that I could be ready for Thanksgiving. I ate some potatoes, turkey, and 2 biscuits on turkey day, everything was fine, and it wasn't a lot of food but bloated again, ugh, miserable aside from I wasn't nauseous. Ate normally through the weekend and felt fine, except when I had a cookie with a glass of milk, that was a shot in the gut with dull pains. Yesterday I ate some chicken, and some crackers/snacks. Felt fine, a bit bloated, but definitely manageable. I usually don't eat breakfast but today my bloating, burping, and violent stomach pains are back. I slept through lunch and it felt better but after another 45ish minutes it's back. I bummed a bagel off a friend and eating small pieces of it, with a single TUMs tablet, I feel 50% better. Still dull pain and some bloating, but as of today, diarrhea sets in, like nuts...
Usually at this point I chalk my symptoms for only today up to a stomach bug, but eating actually makes me feel better, and I haven't had any vomiting. Acid reflux yes, and I will say that over the last week I've had some darker grey or darker dark brown BMs, which my Dad told me is indicative of an ulcer, but they have gone away and yesterday was normal, today runny... Sorry to be so descriptive, but when I thought it was an ulcer it throws me around symptom wise. Interwebs state gassy/burping isn't an ulcer, but being nauseous and small foods that are grain based which help is indicative of an ulcer... Eating pieces of my bagel help for 10ish minutes a piece. Can't get into the DR until next week, but tired of being weak/nauseous.
What do you all think? Let me know if you have any questions.
