Holding Pattern

Saw my holistic doc Friday.  He doesn't want me changing my diet until they figure out what is going on with my intestines.  He poked me in my left side and I went through the roof it hurt so much.  The poking set off some kind of weird chain reaction and I ended up having to take aspirin the rest of the day.

He also told me that I shouldn't have stopped my meds when I got sick.  Turns out I should have increased my dose not stopped it.  My regular doc told me the opposite.  He was happy I stopped the hydrocortisone.  Then again he doesn't want me on that stuff anyway.

So I've upped my dose of hydrocortisone.  That should help with the brain fog and dizzy spells.  My guts still hurt and I have to go back to my regular doc on Monday for a follow up.  I'm guessing that I'll be sent to a gastro doc.  Ah the fun just never ends.

Meanwhile, GAPS is on total hold.  Oh yeah, I'm also getting bored as hell because I've been stuck on the couch going on four weeks now and brain fogged for three.  I can't do anything and it is starting to piss me off.  Grrrrr......


  1. We are not doing gaps, just eating very plain food - no wheat/gluten, dairy or sugar. Lots of fresh fruit & vegetables.
    Your tummy is reacting to something.

  2. What a bummer. I hope they figure out what is going on and that you get back on track my friend. Hang in there.
