Brwneyedchica Posted August 10, 2005 Report Share Posted August 10, 2005 I went Monday and had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy. I've been having alot of abdominal cramping and pain, bloody stools, and diarrhea in addition to my usual nausea and vomiting. They found that I have gastritis (some sort of irritation of the lining of the tissues of the stomach). I've missed the past several weeks of work due to the nausea and just feeling ill. I tried several times to go back to work and was unsuccessful. I tried again today and am so nauseated that i've just laid on my bed for hours and not moved waiting for it to pass. My usual anti-nausea med (Compazine) doesn't seem to be working. I also had the whole sweaty palms, shaky I'm gonna pass out feeling this morning. The past few times i've had that feeling i've had to miss weeks upon weeks of work while they tinker with my meds.I've noticed that no matter what problem i'm having ( a cold, the flu, the passing out feeling) I always "regress" back to the severe morning sickness that characterizes my case of POTS. I'll be fine in the mornings for awhile, but then I get sick and am REALLY sick in the mornings. The worst part is that I feel awful for continuing to miss work, they keep calling me at home trying to figure out how to do things. I was supposed to go back to work today and discuss working later hours with my boss, that's the only thing I can think of that might help me now. It seems like if it's not one thing it's another. I guess I just needed a little support..... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
