    So my whole healthy eating and workout plan has been sabotaged a bit over the past couple weeks. I've been having unexplained, gnawing abdominal pain a couple times a day for 1-4 hours a time for the past 2 weeks. I've seen my GP and late last week went to the hospital the pain was so bad - they did pregnancy tests, blood tests and an ultrasound and everything was fine (which is good news...I guess) but still no explanation for the pain! So now I've been told to basically purge my system and eliminate any potential allergens - so I'm literally eating tomato soup, natural oats, apple sauce, baby food, jello, and select vegeatbles. No meat, dairy, eggs, nuts, oils, or processes carbs (although I wasn't realy eating any dairy or processed carbs before either!). Ugh! Still feel like crap.

     

    So I'm losing weight but NOT in a good way...my goal was to tone, not lose weight but I don't have much control over this at the moment. I'm just so frustrated because when I have an attack it hurts like Hell, I have no idea what's causing it, AND my wedding is in less than 4 weeks so it's seriously bad timing!!!

      And it's not stress!!! If another one of my coworkers or family members laughs it off and says that to me, I'm gonna freak on them, lol. I know they're just trying to be comforting but I haven't been stressed or worried about anything in quite a while...this whole DW process has been pretty much smooth sailing.

        That really sucks...have you considered getting a second medical opinion? i dont know if you are in to any of this stuff but my sister swears by accupuncture for everything. Maybe that could help?Its also possible you developped an allergy to something

          Wow that is not fun.  And so close to the wedding too.  I really hope they figure it out soon. 

           

          Did they rule out any pelvic/cervix/uterine infection or inflammation??  That is around the same area.  Just thinking here...

              Sorry to hear..... Hope you feel better soon and nip whatever it is in the bud. I'm sure you had a complete work up done but, did they check your gall bladder?

                  I hope you feel better soon! Don't you hate when you go to the doctor to get answers and leave just as clueless!

                    That really sucks. It must be so frustrating not getting any answers.  Hope you feel better soon.

                      Thanks for the support, ladies. Yes, I had a full workup done of blood work, ultrasound, etc. to check for any sort of stones, infection, inflammation, etc. All came back fine. I've been pouring over research for the past few days and I think I've basically diagnosed myself with IBS. So to stabilize my system I am sticking to the bland foods and had to start eating starch again (the elimination of which over the past couple months may have triggered it). So far, so good in the past 24 hours anyway...and exercise really helps whatever it is so I have an extra motivator to keep that up! Lol
