It's been awhile since I've posted here because I've been in remission for a couple of years now. But I'm writing today because since the weekend I've been really unwell.
For the past few months I've been trying to include new things into my very restricted diet (I also have hypoglygemia) and last Friday I took a sip of a new juice (it had a TON of ingredients. It was silly of me to try it) and on Saturday morning I ate something from my regular diet which didn't taste right. Saturday afternoon I started cramping but I didn't have diarrhea until right before bed. Sunday and Monday I still had cramps but it was getting a lot better. Then Monday I got my period and all heck broke loose!
Since I also have endometriosis, the cramps from my period combined with whatever was all ready going on (a reaction to the juice or food poisoning), made me really ill - I felt as sick as I did 4 years ago when I had my colitis flare. Since I also have low blood sugar and need to eat, this has made the last few days very tricky. I've been so sick to my stomach I nearly fainted twice and nearly thrown up a bunch of times. Luckily, I haven't had any more diarrhea and no blood in my stools so I'm not even sure it is colitis...?
Today, I'm feeling better but I'm weak as a kitten and so dizzy I can hardly stand up for any length of time.
Does this sound like colitis or maybe something else? Maybe it's just a combination of everything? I haven't called my doctor because I figured once the first part (and usually worst part) of my period was over, the pain would subside and things would get back to normal. For the most part, the pain is gone but but I still feel very very ill.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
