I shared on my stories last week that I have been dealing with some stomach issues recently. In fact, I have been dealing with stomach issues as far as I can remember but somehow, I have managed to keep them controlled throughout the years.
First and foremost, I am one of those poor souls that have been diagnosed with lactose intolerance, which seems like the end of the world if you love chocolate like I do. I somehow have learnt to accept it and mostly got on with my life as usual (despite the usual cravings every now and then, specially during my period). I am not allergic to lactose, but if it slips in one of my meals, I feel absolutely awful for the next hours to come so I try to avoid it all together if possible.
Along with lactose intolerance, I was also -recently- diagnosed with onion and garlic intolerance which I’ve heard is actually quite common, so despite my love for both I also have to avoid them. Long story short, I have a sensitive stomach so I tend to be quite careful with what I put in my mouth.
Its not unusual for me to get an indigestion but two weeks ago, I felt awful for longer than usual and I just couldn’t understand what was going on. I waited a few days and tried to eat healthier but I was feeling sick every day, my stomach was super bloated, discomfort in my solar plexus area and I felt like I was having a perpetual indigestion. Almost 9 days later, my boyfriend told me it was time to go to the doctor and off I went… seemore
