Since about 2008 I've been having some vague and seemingly unrelated symptoms. I would get very bloated and have serious heartburn and mild nausea at times. It wasn't very often, just maybe once a month or so. Then at times I would have bouts of severe diahrrhea and constipation. No big deal I thought. By 2010 there were times when I was eating that when I tried to swallow a bite of food it simply would not go. I became very nauseated and would end up throwing up all that I had just eaten and wasn't able to finish eating. Gradually I just kept feeling more and more bloated. Now I stay mildly nauseated, have pain in my stomach and I'm pretty sure that all of this has caused me to loose the nearly 50lbs I've lost.
I have an appointment with a new doctor on Monday and hope he can help me start down the road to finding out what is going on here. I'm thinking maybe it's gastroparesis from all the research I've done. But, it could be a lot of things I know.
Thanks for letting me vent everyone. No one understands diabetic like another diabetic.
