IT CAME BACK.

September 4th, 2016

I’m not feeling too well.

Remember how I had food poisoning, last week? I think it’s a bit more complicated than that…

About a month ago I went to Italy. There, I spend a day in Gardaland, and it was so great, but at lunch time I started feeling nauseous and ended up not eating a proper meal till night. When I did eat later in the day, I had really bad cramps on my stomach, but I blamed it all on the super hot weather and the strong sun hitting my head.

A day later, I was at a birthday party, eating normally, until, all of a sudden, the nausea came back. I started to feel really hot, and asked to leave the restaurant for a few minutes, so I could get some fresh air.

Walking helped, I found out that it generally always does, but doesn’t get rid of my stomach problems.

Either way, as I said, I thought it was just because of the heat, to which my body isn’t so used to anymore.

The morning after I talked to my parents about the fact that I’m having troubles, and that maybe it was a fear I have developed overtime, because less than 6 months ago I suddenly threw up at night and since then, I do think about it quite often, and especially when I’m out dining, I might react badly and need some time to calm down, by walking around.

In fact, in the last 5 months, it probably happened about 5 to 10 times that whilst with friends, hanging out after dinner, even if only watching a movie at my house, I had to stand up and move, because the nausea and cramps started to happen, but very mildly.

Then I went to Malaysia and got food poisoning, which I think triggered something much worse. If I could deal with random but brief nausea and stomach pain attacks, by simply walking for a few minutes, now I’m at a point that I can’t focus on what I’m doing during the day, and stress over dinnertime.

I thought that last week it took me longer to heal because the virus I had was strong, but I am realising that the food poisoning was just the beginning to something else.

Two nights ago, the paint got pretty intense, once again. It’s scary because Felix is currently on the other side of the world, and I’m here on my own. Luckily, I have amazing friends that made themselves available to help, and came around a few hours last night to watch a movie with me, but even then, I ended up not eating and having to take medicines because the pain was starting.

To give you a bit more of a back story, last week I booked in with a private doctor to check on me, because I felt like this “illness” was stranger than just a food poisoning. I asked him if it could be the birth control pill I take, because the one I used to take 6 months ago made me feel nauseated at night (after a few hours from taking it) and eventually I threw up. Since then I was given a more gentle pill, but about a moth ago I started to develop nausea and I’m really scared about throwing up again.

He said it was silly of me to think that could be the cause, because if I were to be sick from the pill, it would happened right away. I told him I was fine on the other for the first 6 months of taking it, and only the last 3 made me sick, so I wondered it it’s possible that side effects develop on me after a little while of being on each pill. He looked at me like I was crazy, and said it’s impossible.

That day, he also made me cry, because he crossed out things I believe might be the cause of this illness, and instead he said that I’m too anxious and that’s why I feel sick. He went on recommending anxiety meds and depression pills, and asking Felix how I was doing, anxiety wise. I tried to explain that my anxiety used to be very extreme a few years back, but I think I’m dealing with it more than well lately, and although – sure, the anxiety might be making this situation all worse – I do think there is something more to it. I feel different, the pain is different. I never ever had troubles with meals, or the food I ate (other than dairy products, because of my lactose intolerance).

I have been eating a very healthy diet lately, I have been working out 3 times a week for half a year, I don’t stress over work or study and I don’t smoke or drink coffee. I am happy. So if it really was due to just stress and anxiety, this should have occurred years ago, not now, when I am at my best.

 

Anyway, I left his office feeling awful about myself, because a doctor I requested took about 3 minutes to look at me and judge the situation, without properly listening or running any kind of tests.

For a few days after that I felt bad, but eventually started feeling better and managed to eat properly, as usual. I was totally relaxed, and glad that it was over. But then, as I said, it came back.

So I booked another appointment, with a different doctor, and this time I will insist to get blood tests done and ask if she can look into my problem seriously.

I read online that most doctor, when you have these kind of symptoms, simply brush it off saying it’s anxiety, but trust me – I’m sure there is more.

I was in so much pain again that I’ve decided to quit taking the pill. I couldn’t go on, if there was a chance that it was the cause. It’s been 2 days and no improvements, but I need to give it some time. I’m really hoping that by stopping it, the side effects will go away and everything will go back to normal; but who knows, maybe it is something more serious.

For now I have some medicines that help, in case it gets really bad. I’m just tired of feeling this way, because in the beginning it was a problem that I could deal with, but after the food poisoning event, it’s taking over my days. I can’t seem to focus on studying, I don’t have the energy to be in front of the camera, and other than taking walks out with the pugs or doing small tasks in the house, I can’t seem to get up to much.

To describe a bit the pain: it begins around 6 in the afternoon (although lately, after breakfast and lunch I develop a mild stomachache, while digesting the food) with gas reaching my throat. A lot of it, it keeps coming up. Then the nausea comes, and that’s the scary part to me. Eventually stomach cramps start as well, and my stomach makes a lot of noise. I need to keep going to the toilet. It’s very painful, and I can’t think about food, I can’t look at food. I can’t even watch a movie. I go to bed really early, because my body is shaking, and can’t cope with the situation and just want to sleep.

I’m really trying to be positive, keep working when I feel well, and study a few pages a day (when normally my daily productivity is much higher than that).

I’m truly hoping that:

a) either it was the pill, and now that I’m not taking it anymore, the side effects will fade over time;

b) my doctor appointment will go well, I will get my tests done and they will find what’s wrong and properly treat me.

 

I understand it’s not a terrible illness, but because it’s becoming chronic, it is a problem for me, and I really look forward to get some answers.

My appointment is on Friday, so I will keep you updated, as soon as I have more info to share. For now, if you have suggestions on what this could be (from what I’ve gathered it sounds like IBS, but could be so many other things) and suggestions on what I can eat or do to help my digestive system.

 

Thank you for reading this super long post. I just needed to let you know about my health situation, at the moment.

 

 

Marzia.

    Hi Marzia, that just sucks! I’m very sympathetic since I had stomach troubles of my own. Stomach problems can be quite complex, but I did I find some answers through researching, some through my own experience and some from my teachers and textbooks (I’m a medical student). My problems started years ago. At one point I had so much nausea everyday I couldn’t do anything while it was going on. It did get better, if I could go back I would have done some things differently.

    I hope you are being tested for allergies, vitamin deficiencies, ulcers and so on. If they cant find anything there is still stuff you can do. It might be that your digestive tract is worn out, that your stomach lining needs to heal and that your gut flora is a bit messed up. In that case I would recommend many of the things already suggested, but this in particular:
    – take pro-biotics – you need to find a good brand and might have to try different ones but they can really help!
    – keep a food journal, note what you eat, when you eat, when you go to the bathroom and all your symptoms
    – don’t eat things that mess up the gut. Antibiotics, alcohol, artificial sweetners, sugars (also “natural” ones like fruit)
    – lastly i wouldn’t take omeprazol.
    As it turns out, too little stomach acid will cause the SAME symptoms as too much stomach acid. And also leave you more open for digestive problems and bad bacteria/infections. Go figure.. So if its not helping you, don’t take it. In my case, starting pro-biotics, quitting omeprazol and giving my stomach time to heal made all the difference.

    Hope you will find out what works for you!

    Dear Marzia,
    I feel so sorry for you after reading this 😦
    I was too suffering from pain I’m my stomach and especially massive heartburn. I had a gastroscopy but the doctors did not find any anomalies. What really helped me was a diet where I avoided sugar and carbonhydrates even though the doctors said it has nothing to do with an intolerance.
    Also I switched from the pill to the NuvaRing (do you have that in the U.K.?). I like it because the hormones do not go through you whole body and especially the stomach. I had a pill without lactose before but I still had issues with my stomach.

    I hope you will feel better soon!

    Dear Marzia. You are simply the cutest.
    I’ve had problems with my stomach and digestive system myself in the past.
    The problems are often different form person to person. Something that helped me find my problem was testing my food intolerances and how I reacted to different things. It can be done in many ways, but I got help by a professional Vega-tester. She told me I should stay away from diary (except youghurt), gluten, and rice. I also got nature medicine, to help. I started to feel much better!!!
    And even though I sometimes cheat, it doesnt matter much – because I generally avoid these products.
    So even though you are eating healthy.. there could be more to it.

    As another user said, It could also just be your stomach and digestive system that is unbalanced after your first problem.

    Maybe some of these advices will help you
    Go on a juice diet to clean out
    Add aloe vera juice to your diet, as it heals the inside a bit.
    Add pro-biotics to your diet – can be bought in most health stores

    My best advice for staying balanced is to drink a glass of warm lemon-water in the morning.
    Press an organic lemon and add hot water – like tea.
    You can also add a teaspoon of baking soda, which will help alkalize your body.
    You can also add spirulina, chlorella and hempgrass to your diet. I buy it in powder form and mix it with water or a smoothie. It really boost the system.

    The most inportant factor is actually happiness. Sometime getting help to evaluate your life can make it even better, and often illnesses go away when negative energy goes away.

    I dont reccomend psychiatrists or psychologists, as they are too focused on the body, not the mind and soul.
    So find an alternative treatment. 🙂

    And remember you know best. Dont lessen your own inituition.

    I know that was a lot of advices. I usually never write comments online. But I find you very special.

    Best regards Julie

    Hello Marzia, your post (and symptoms) seem very familiar to something both my mum and myself have experienced in the past. After reading your latest post from Italy I feel like you’re almost at the end of finding what’s wrong and what this sickness is, but if you’re not, here’s my experience with something very similar. A few years ago my mother was experience this. It happened somewhat suddenly too. Over the course of months maybe even up to a year she was experiencing endless nights of excruciating pain in her stomach and constantly spending time beside the toilet at night. A lot of her hours she had this acid-like fluid in her throat (indigestion). She spent months constantly going to doctor appointments but no one knew her problem.. No doctor could diagnose it at all! She did things like blood tests, ultrasounds and yet no one could find her problem.. At one stage even I was going to the doctors a bit to figure out my issue (similar to my mothers) but no one could figure it out.. So then she heard about this thing called a ‘naturopath’.. I’m not sure if you’ve heard about them but they take natural approaches to problems, with the least amount of meds and if meds are required they are usually made of natural ingredients. Where I live we have a very good naturopath. He’s honestly like some sort of mind reader. It’s amazing! He wasn’t able to pinpoint what my mum had wrong exactly but he put her on this strict diet and in a matter of weeks she was cured! From what I can remember the diet consisted of basically fruit, vegetables (even sometimes certain vegetables weren’t allowed because they were too acidic or something), no diary (so rice milk, almond milk), no caffeine, no sugar, no gluten, I think also not too much wheat, so small portions of gluten free bread, etc. and this was very strict, not even bad food in small doses was allowed otherwise her sickness would immediately come back that night. However, you have specifically stated that you’re eating perfectly healthy and I can see that through your lovely posts.. Maybe even though your foods are healthy it could be one of these healthy foods causing havoc? I’m not a doctor so don’t quote me lol! I just remember my mother not being able to eat tomatos for a while. Anyway I really hope this helps in some way Marzia 🙂

      Thank you for all the info! I have done a test to see if any specific foods could be the cause and I’m eager to find out the results. Either way, my mom also gave me a list of foods I should avoid because they are heavier to digest, so I’m definitely going to read more and more about foods that could be better for me, rather than just general healthy foods – if that makes sense! 😛

    Hello marzia, im sorry that you are feeling bad lately… i already have tried to reach you in the past to talk about the fear you have… many people has it and its called EMETOPHOBIA, this fear most of the time comes from a child or experience something bad that causes a trauma… and when you get nausea or feel sick it just gets worse….. my case is that i developed this fobia at the age of 17 (im 30 years now )… being close to my grandma who was in the hospital and my brother leaving our house, and there was so much going on i got depressed and started to feal panic atacks and nauseated all the time… i made so many blood tests and other stuff because i believed i had a huge stomach problem or something else… but no… it was just the phobia taking control over me…i was getting worse and worse and i ended in a pshychiatrist who didnt help me much… i was feeling so alone, when i just realized that i was afraid of having panic atacks and throwing up, even talk to people and feel sick in front of them all of the sudden… i stoped going out and i couldnt just get out… after years in battle with this problem i realized i was the one who could make me feel better by discovering and accepting some of my issues… and i met people with the same problem, was so happy when here in Portugal (my country), i found a girl who had the same i was happy that i was not alone… what i wanna say is that you should make tests to see if there’s something going on with your stomach, but if not, it might be the fear taking over you… i also thought that the pill made me sick and ive stoped taking it in 2011 , i usually have bad nights with stomach ache and feel nausea because of my anxiety problems… thats when i feel worse, at night, or when i have to do something away from home or anything related to the fact that i can have anxiety or i can throw up or feel ill…if you ever need to talk about it… feel free to do it… its not because you are famous that i should not try to help… you are just a girl like me and many others with the same fear… i’ve sended you a message months ago and even made facebook friendship with your brother who accepted (but i did not talked to him ever ) , since you never answered me, i felt it was not a good way to try and reach you… im sorry about the english, if you ever wanna talk feel free… (or talk to bunny (graveyard girl) i think she has this fear also) hope you feel better soon girl! keep yourself calm, everything will pass and you will feel much better… best regards, Ana Nagui

    My friend has “ulcerös kolit”(in swedish, don’t know the english name) and it began when she was sbout 19 or so. It sounds like the thing you might have, the symptoms are the same and you have the right age. My friend had to meet several doctors to finally fins one that could diagnose and help here, since it is kinda rare. It would suck super much if it was that though, but if it is then you have to know.

    (This page I am linking here is in Swedish but maybe Felix can help you translate it. I can’t find what it is called in english. http://www.1177.se/Stockholm/Fakta-och-rad/Sjukdomar/Ulceros-kolit/?ar=True) I really think you should read it.

    Dear Marzia,
    I sympathize completely with your situation,I have had stomach problems since I can remember.It is at the point where I feel no one believes me that absolutely everything I eat hurts my stomach. I have however taken a few steps that have helped ease the pain of it.What has helped me overcome these obstacles is first getting off birth control. I don’t know if there is evidence of birth control giving terrible anxiety but for me it skyrocketed my anxiety. It made everything extremely difficult to the point where I became agoraphobic. Which magnified my stomach problems and also i felt did not let me digest food properly. Once off the pill I did try to stick to whole food and no animal products because eating those was a lot harder on my body. I can’t say I’m cured or better because every night I go to sleep with a stomach ache but like you I am on a mission to find out what I can do. Thank you for speaking about this issue , as I imagine it is not easy to do so publicly but you helped me feel a little less crazy.

    Hi Marzia!

    Some tips for getting rid of the nausea:
    – Chamomile tea
    – Ginger (like ginger beer)
    – Soda
    – Lemon or lemon juice
    – Honey
    – Raspberry tea

    I think it is probably the birth control as those kind of things are common with it, so hopefully it will pass soon!

    Always stay strong and true to your feelings. You truly know your body best. Listen to your body and what it wants, no food, just liquid food… Etc. One thing I did loads of research on and seems amazing for these type of issues – stomach upset, IBS – is apple cider vinegar. You can mix it with hot water, a little lemon and manukau (New Zealand) honey and this is supposed to be a natural magical remedy. Could be worth a go. Maybe also have a look at ‘fully raw kristina’ on YouTube as she was diagnosed with diabetes and cures herself with the magic of raw food… I’m just trying to think of anything that could help you. But you should also show your doctor how you have changed even over the last year. Look back at some of your YouTube videos and pictures, then it is really obvious that you have lost weight in the face, have lost energy, dark rings under the eyes 😦 and look exhausted even though you are trying. Maybe also whilst you are struggling still make sure your body is getting what it needs as I know you are not ‘anorexic’ but in the same respect, with limiting food because your body is struggling I think the situation might be getting worse and worse. It becomes a downward spiral. But please make sure you take vitamin supplements, a daily full spectrum vitamin and extra vitamin C, B, D, zinc, take omega fish oils capsules, spiralina, and you can buy ‘floradix’ in the UK by Salus, and pick the one with Fe (red) and also a protein shake (without the lactose / milk products, maybe egg protein for you?). And or some BCAAs (branch chain amino acids) so you have enough proteins in your body that you don’t get muscle wasting whilst your body is trying to heal.
    And one last thing I could suggest, in New Zealand we used to drink coconut water and blend pineapple and watermelon together and (with the daily vitamins, good omega fats, and proteins) just drink these two (you can ask mix them all) for a week to flush and detox the body, to try and let it heal. But using no medicines or any other foods. (Unless you crave something! Like some people crave garlic when sick, which is a natural antiseptic/anti inflammatory.
    Also, just to feel better / know, maybe get your pancreas checked and do a bowl cancer test to just to be sure.
    I truly hope that you feel better soon and will keep my fingers crossed for you X. Oh! And one last thing! There is a book called ‘beauty from the inside out’ and (despite the title) this is really great book for giving information on how the body works, the nutrients that it needs to function and work and how certain foods can help. All the love and hope in the world to you Mazia X. Will be great to see you smiling again when you figure out what it is, and you will X.

    I had similar symptoms when I would eat and it ended up being my gallbladder. I had TWO doctors tell me that wasn’t what was wrong, and finally after a test they found out that it was. My mom knew right away because it’s hereditary. Not saying that is your problem, I know you are having a lot of tests done. But maybe ask them to check it out if they’re still coming up empty handed for a diagnosis :/

    HI, sorry to hear about you feeling not so well. Anyway, I wanna share my point of view on doctors… they always don’t take you seriously and think they know you better than yourself… so my advice is to research online as much as you can your symptoms, know your body really really well, keep track of your health changes. Try not to take much medications, as it tends to hide more serious illments. Good luck.

    That totally sucks, I’m so sorry you’re going through this Marzia :/ Reminds me of when my doctor made me retest for depression to see how I’m doing and he asked after what makes me depressed and I said it was the fact that my mom had cancer (she’s been off chemo and radiation for about a year now) and since they took out a blood filter she can still have a heart attack if she stresses out too much. Who wouldn’t be worried for their relative if they had to go through that??? He literally gave me the coldest glare I’ve ever received, turned and asked my mom if she still has cancer (she said no because she’s better but can still fall sick anytime), turned back at me and said “see your mom’s fine. I think you’re depressed because you’re not doing what you’re suppose to be doing.” He walked about after that and didn’t say anything else. It’s like the person who’s job is to make me feel better just tried to push me over the edge, legitimately couldn’t breath and felt like an anxiety attack coming on. It seems so ridiculous to someone else but to me it was the most hurtful thing a doctor could ever say to me. Every time I think of that moment I cry, I still don’t even know what I’m supposedly not doing right considering I’m very healthy (physically) and I take all my meds for my issues. Oh well I guess, sorry for the long story

    Marzia,

    Every since I was sixteen, I was having SEVERE stomach pains during all times of the month, but it was much worse during my actual period week. It first started off in my lower abdomen like it normally would for your period, but then it spread around and hurt my pelvis area, and then down my legs. With the pain almost comes nausea. I used to have the worse time eating, but I can bare with it now. I ended up finding out I have Endometriosis, a chronic disease only women get. They originally thought I had ovarian cancer, because my cysts were basically (sorry if this sounds gross) webbed together between my ovaries and hanging on each other. They showed me a video of it, it was terrifying. So I went to see a specialist and he did a pap smear. It was THE most painful thing I have and will ever feel. He had thought I had Endometriosis, but he wasn’t for sure so we scheduled a surgery for the Summer.

    The only way to diagnose it is with a laparoscopic surgery. They basically make slits in your abdomen and take a machine to go in and look at your uterus with a camera. They then scrape off any scar tissue they find and cysts as well. I actually had nine cysts they had to take care of. The recovery time was supposed to be not even twenty four hours, but the surgery had such an impact on my body I had to stay over for THREE days. I basically slept the first two days. I mean, I was only sixteen at the time. I am now almost twenty and the pain has only gotten worse over time WITH various birth controls and 800 MG ibuprofen. I’m so hesitant to take any pain medication because I know it’s basically like digging myself a grave. Anyways, I can give more information of my personal experience, but I obviously don’t know what’s going on with your body right now. I just can relate because your experience sounds all too familiar. Thanks for reading. I hope you find out soon.

    Sorry to hear this Marzia, all of us have experienced doctors like that at some time, especially us women. For some reason we are taken less seriously and classified as over-emotional or exaggerating or sensitive. I really hope you find the answer. Personally I think the birth control pill is very bad for you, but it’s sort of a catch 22, can’t live with it or without it sort of thing. I had a bad experience with non-hormonal IUD as well. I’m wondering if it’s some kind of longer food poisoning or H. Pylori or something? Definitely keep pestering doctors, it’s very inconvenient to have to find a good one but you know your body best.

    I can’t believe I’m reading this just now! I think I have kinda similar problem but I’m not sure what causes it.
    It started in July when I was visiting my dad and got suddendly super sick at my his workplace. We were eating and then I started feeling bad. I was too anxious to ask my dad if we could go and I couldn’t finish my meal. After about 15mins of suffering and making painful faces I finally asked if we could go outside. Then I explained I wasn’t feeling well and that my stomach hurt and that I needed to go to the bathroom. I was in pain and just sitting in the bathroom for 40mins because I was too anxious to leave. After that my dad took me home (1h drive btw, it was awful).
    Same thing hapened two days after that and after that I was sick for a month. First two and half weeks I couldn’t eat anything and I lost 10kg of my weight. I survived with berrysoups from store. And to top it all my dad didn’t take it seriously..
    I started to feel better after a while and it went away but now every time I go out to eat in a restaurant with my father (I haven’t gone with anyone else to be honest) I start to feel nauseous and I have to go to the bathroom because I fear I will throw up on the table.
    It has been like half a year since this first happened and I have no idea why it is. I was only blaming it for my anxiety.
    I haven’t read your posts after this but I hope you found some help that could also give me quide.
    Sorry for the long comment!!

    Marzia, I am so sorry you have to experience that. I was diagnosed with a chronic disease 6 years ago with the same symptoms. A lot of what you are explaining sounds exactly like what I was going through. I too have anxiety on top of it and for that reason I am not going to share what disease I have because I don’t want to give you anymore anxiety or stress. If you wish to know then I will share. I am better but still have days that just plain suck. You seem like a very strong woman tho. I have no doubt that with the right doctor you will figure this out and live a healthy and amazing life. It seems you have an amazing support system at home and a great community behind you. Keep us updated and keep doing what you’re doing. Love watching/reading your videos and blogs. Your Marzipan– Sarah
