Is This Normal?

11 posts in this topic

Ever since the fiasco with the spinage and consequently the soy, i've been haveing a on going case of "C". I had some pre all of this, but not to this extreme. Its like my system has been on over loaded ever since that blasted stomach virus.

I mean, i'll go a little, but the cramping and whatnot is still there (thus making it rather unconfortable to go). But its not my normal.

I've tried increaseing my fiber, like yesterday:

one cup of chex

four prunes

peanut butter and honey on a corn tortilla

plain hamburger with some barely cooked apples

No veggies i know, the stuff i have here will make me really gassy so that plus "C" is not a good idea. I'm going to the store today, so thats a good thing. I normally eat quite a bit of veggies (like carrots, brocoli, asparagus, etc.).

I cannot go without having some sort of starch at two out of three meals due to my GERD.

Perhaps i'm just wondering when all this mess will get over. I'm sick of it :(

Any ideas for me?

Sounds as if you are getting enough fiber, how about water?

I find that drinking a lot of water throughout the day keeps the pipes running smoothly :)

Do you take probiotics? Maybe your gut needs some "good guys" after having a stomach bug.

Adding ground flaxseed to your diet may also help.

Is brown rice okay for you?

Just some thoughts.

Hope things turn around for you soon.

fiber without liquid is a receipe for constipation....and cafeinated drinks do not count for the total of their volume.

lol i only drink water, sodas and whatnot cause my GERD to act up >.>

I'll pick up some brown rice.

On the probiotic thing, i generally can't take pills cause they give me a bad sour stomach :(

I think if i keep the high fiber up, then things may go back to normal (I hope).

Try a probiotic in powder form maybe?

A calcium supplement with magnesium, or just a gluten-free magnesium supplement.

Others mentioned the water.

Coffee.

Dried dates (you can use Larabars for this, altho I don't know if the Larabar people want it advertised that way ;) )

Well guys i just walked about a mile and a half for a school event (to get a free tshirt) and i got my face somewhat painted.

I heard that walking can help with "C" and exercise in general. Mind you i just froze my butt off (its like 30 something outside with misting) but i hope it helps some.

Hello. I feel your pain! A few years ago, I got some really good indirect advice from a nurse who told my pastor's wife about a product I'd never heard of. It helped her so much she told me about it. I did a couple of days researching it on the web as I've had chronic stomach troubles for thirty years. Amazing! It was a Godsend. After a few weeks, I found it was cheaper and tastier if I cultured it myself. Anyways, whether I culture it or buy it already made, I truly believe it saved my life. When I finally first tried it, I'd had chronic diarrhea so bad for five days and nights that I could barely sit up and was severely dehydrated, as I could neither eat nor drink fluids. After just 2 cups of the stuff an hour apart, the diarrhea stopped and I recovered quickly. Then, just last year, I got sick with vomiting and diarrhea so bad I spent 13 days in the hospital with IV's and stomach pumps and massive amounts of drugs. Turns out I had over a hundred ulcers and erosions causing such inflammation that I was deathly ill. The doctors told me that had I not been drinking the miracle stuff, the ulcers would have caused me to bleed to death. I don't sell it or anything, I just use it and it's been like a miracle for me. It a probiotic that's like yogurt on steroids! It's great for almost any kind of digestive trouble from constipation to diarrhea to cramps and a host of other yucky stuff. I'd suggest if you want to try it, you read up on it. Just google it, that's what I did. It's called 'Kefir' and I've been using it for five or six years now.

Anyway, I truly hope you get better soon. I know how miserable you must be.

I wish you well.

I'm feeling a whole lot better (though the "C" is still sort of there). I guess it just took time to get out of my system.

thanks :)
