Do any of you suffer with a tummy that will surprise you with symptoms at any given time or day?
I’m confused and exhausted from trying to guess which food (or possible air particle) that passed my lips has caused said symptoms.
Whenever I discuss it with my husband he listens to my thought process and then looks at me like I’m crazy - Little wonder!
Here is a brief snippet of what goes through my mind:
Woken up at 1:30am feeling extremely hot, bloated, achy and not sure if I feel nauseous or shaken up from abrupt awakening...
‘What’s going on? Do I need the toilet? No. Why am I so warm? Why is my heart racing? Ouch. My arms are aching. Oh wait. My tummy is churning. Great. I do need the toilet. Woah, I’m light headed! What have I eaten? Wake up! What have you eaten?! You’re vegan, what could possibly have upset you?! Oh wait, we had chips earlier. No, fried potato won’t do this! Anything unusual eaten? Their curry sauce could have been last weeks. No, it’s a busy shop. Oh sh1t, we went swimming. Did I swallow the water? I did a few handstands? No, I don’t remember any water going in. Perhaps one of the other people in the pool has a tummy upset and I’ve touched something? Oh dear, I can’t get a tummy bug, not again!! I’ve got to go climbing with the kids tomorrow! What time is it? I need deep. Wow, my tummy feels dreadful. Am I going to be sick? Do I need water? Where is it coming from? Should I go downstairs and watch some tv to distract me? It can’t be the chips, as Jon had them too! Did he have the curry sauce? No, but the little one did. Fcuk! I hope he’s alright!! I can’t suffer another tummy bug! Perhaps I’m still harbouring the last one? Have I felt 100% since then? No! You don’t get enough sleep! You felt nauseous the other day. Could be 48hrs since you picked up something. Where were you 48hrs ago? It’s Saturday night, where were you on Thursday? It was sunny! Nope, nothing unusual there. Could you be pregnant? God, no! Thank goodness I don’t feel that rough. It could never feel that bad again. Actually, I’m feeling better. I’ll go and lie down. Why am I shaking? My tummy is bloated and gurgling. What have you eaten all day?
