For the second day in a row, I have gotten so sick at work, I've had to leave early :(
not sure exactly what is going on, but I think it may have something to do with laxatives?
I had been realllly constipated for about 2 weeks, so I took some Dulcolax. Worked overnight, no big deal.
Well the days following I have had the worst D ever! and my stomach has been cramping really bad. Lucky for me, I have a pretty easy desk job, but I haven't been able to make it through these past couple days :(
Also, I haven't had this for a while, but I've been getting that wet, salty feeling in my mouth. It's really hard to describe, but years ago I used to have that feeling before vomitting. Anyone know what it is/what causes it?

No advice or insights, Tabi, just a big hug.

I hope things get better for you soon.

Yes I get the same mouth watering thing before vomiting but I have no idea why either.
