I have always had some issues with constipation, really all the women in my family do and during my menstrual cycle that turns to diarrhea usually. My mom has GERD and has had her gallbladder removed but she has a much worse diet than me and is obese while I am a healthy weight. I have Epilepsy (absence seizures with secondary generalization) and do take medicine for it Ergenyl *****d and Keppra. I am prone to Ovarian cysts. Thyroid problems run rampant in my family both sides both hyper and hypo, according to the new stats I have hypothyroidism but am not being treated for it. As far as I know no one has ever had an ulcer. My grandfather died of Esophageal Cancer but he used chewing tobacco. I do not smoke, drink, or do recreational drugs.
Gradually over the course of 2 years or so (following pregnancy) I've experienced nausea, the nausea occurs all day long and is mild to severe w/out vomiting (unless I have a stomach bug). The only thing that helps is ice or Popsicles my stomach has to be practically frozen before I feel any relief at all and honestly I've started sitting around in my underwear with the windows open to let in cold air just to feel relief. I am also more prone to stomach viruses now than before the baby despite washing my hands very thoroughly and a few weeks ago I had a bug that lasted for 5 days. I didn't vomit but I had very bad diarrhea, I went 12 times between a time period of 8 am and 12 pm at my worst, all liquid, explosive, I even had some rectal leakage which I have never had, I had a mild fever of 100.5 or so. During the virus I experienced extreme abdominal pain, a tearing pain and there were periods I could not even move and just lay still screaming. I did not go to the doctor because it was Sunday and the next day I felt better. I've also started to experience some heartburn, though I don't experience it too often and often on an empty stomach or with beef products. I really don't have gas often surprisingly little and have slight bloating.
In the last week I've found that I feel unclean even after bathing, I just feel like I have a film on me though I have not noticed a smell. My periods have gotten heavier in the past year, sometimes so heavy I don't leave the house (my mom is experiencing the same thing actually and for her they've gotten so bad she has become EXTREMELY anemic). My periods last 7 days normally but I've noticed sometimes they last longer. My Epilepsy is really not under control yet. I used to be so active but now I feel so awful and I've started to sleep a lot up from my old 8 hours to 12-13 hours. I feel hungry constantly but I am not really putting on any weight or anything and have lost a little but an inconsequential amount. Any clue what could be wrong? I don't want to be nauseous anymore!
