Jayhawkgrad Posted April 10, 2016 Share Posted April 10, 2016 FTR, I'm not seeking medical advice and will call my doctor Monday. I was getting ready to go to the ER when the pain subsided, or I'd be there already. Twice this week I've woken up in the middle of the night with severe upper stomach pain (under the sternum) and bad diarrhea. I've actually had quite a lot of diarrhea all week. But the pain episodes, just the two times, and lasting about an hour or two each time. Obviously not a doctor, but I'm suspecting gallbladder stones or inflammation or something. I did have a fairly high amount of fat yesterday. I'm on day 22 and really considering throwing in the towel, but I really want to finish, too. But I'm struggling with always feeling hungry, having diarrhea, my breastmilk supply has taken a big hit, and now these severe pain episodes.... I don't know if I can handle any further food restrictions. If I need to lower fat, I don't even know what I'll eat for the next 8 days. (I have diet restrictions for interstitial cystitis, too, so I have to limit anything acidic). I do have some digestive enzymes I could try later today before I eat. But last time I tried them (a year ago) they seemed to increase diarrhea. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
