Just wanted to update everyone on the goings on so far: I went to the ER on Tues night due to the pain in my upper right quadrant (it radiated into my back). They did an u/s and more bloodwork. Nothing popped out at them and the ER dr. said it sounded more like Crohn's. (Although I'm looking at the records right now and the U/S does point out my fatty liver and a slightly enlarged spleen) Went and saw the GI specialist yesterday and told him my fear of the...
Shyrose~ I hope you weren't scared off I think most everyone here was taken aback by the demands your husband is putting on you. If roles were reversed, would he drop everything and be at your side if you needed the same kind of support?

Thank you I'm not any better today and in fact it almost feels like it's gotten worse after I eat or drink anything. This morning I had one dry pancake with a few sips of my coffee (yes I know, but I'm giving up everything else). I had a Fiber One bar this afternoon and within 20 minutes or so of eating it, my stomach was hurting. It's that pain right below your sternum that feels like you can't breathe. It was like this when I had a gallbladder and I would get...
I have been one huge mess lately and this week has been the crescendo! I have been sick all week with pain in my upper right quadrant plus some lower back pain. I have been having more diarrhea lately than usual (sorry for the TMI). I have IBS (although it is probably Crohn's) so I'm used to it but it's gotten worse. Anytime I have anything to eat or drink (even water), I wind up with pain (both cramping in my tummy and upper right quadrant pain (near my liver). I...
Thank you all for the great replies/suggestions. I guess I hadn't thought that I *could* eat things I want if they are healthy. I don't know why I see it as all or nothing but I suppose part of it is giving up that feeling of being in control of what I eat and when. If I don't eat something that sounds good (and I rarely can plan ahead), then I feel angry and frustrated. I am working through some of this stuff in therapy right now and hopefully it will help. Thank...
I am a mess. I admit it. I've said I would change my diet habits in the past only to fall back into the same old patterns. I eat garbage. I eat only what sounds appealing and what will make me "happy". I have autoimmune issues (possible UC, Fibro, IBS, Crohn's). I deal with anxiety and depression too. (hypo thyroid (medication is stable), fatty liver, no GB, possible adenomyosis) ...I've posted about all this before. The problem is when I try to eat what I see...
What was the melon wrapped in or sitting on in between eating it? Did you put it in the fridge on a plate? Did you wrap it in foil? Was it seedless? When you cut into it, could you have accidentally spliced a seed? (the seeds are really bitter on the inside).
OP~ I have a picky eater after 3 pretty agreeable eaters. It is a tough situation to deal with. My youngest gets stuck on certain foods and it is all he will eat. We still haven't worked out a good system for him so I can't offer much in the way of advice BUT....I will say you are off to a great start and you have gotten some good advice here. A couple things: Have you considered a protein/supplemental shake (would she eat/drink it?) (a temporary...
