Kali Carb vs Nat Mur

I know this may sound crazy, but I am trying to determine whether I'm a Nat Mur or a Kali Carb. I know they are so different.. My dad is a Kali Carb, my mom is a Nat Mur, and I have the personality of a Kali Carb and the mentals of a Nat Mur.

Any advice on how to differentiate?

I have the repressed emotions of a Nat Mur, depression, etc.. but I have the rigidity and by-the-bookness of Kali Carb and I struggle with anxiety (that definitely centers on the stomach!) I also feel like I am very socially awkward, and I am very tall and skinny.

My main physical symptoms are chronic fatigue and digestion issues, including constipation.

If anyone has any insight, I would much appreciate it!

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Firstly, you cannot determine your own remedy in terms of your chronic or constitutional state. No homoeopath in the world is able to do it, much less anyone else. We cannot be objective about ourselves, and will we consistently misinterpret our own thoughts and feelings.

Secondly, the remedies your parents might need has no bearing on the remedy you need. None at all. We do not inherite specific remedy states. You may inherit a miasmatic state, or develop certain issues that members of your family share, but how you see and deal with those issues will be highly individual. Every member of the same family will usually need completely different remedies - they can need minerals, plants, animals, imponderables - anything really.

It is almost 100% certain you are neither Nat-mur or Kali-carb. You will not be able to guess it. There are over 5000 different medicines - being able to first determine what the state of the patient is that needs to be cured, and then matching one of those many many remedies to it, takes a high degree of training, skill and experience.

In every case where I have treated patients who know something about homoeopathy, especially students or other homoeopaths, they have always been way way off the mark about their own remedy. They are usually not even in the right Kingdom.

You can give your case here if you want someone to prescribe for you. I would be happy to.

David - thank you for your response! I had a feeling it wouldn't work to try to determine my own constitutional remedy... I have been seeing a homeopath for about 6 months but ran out of funds to continue, her prices were very high. She had me on a variety of different remedies at different points in time.

I would love to give my case here, how do I go about doing that? I've seen some people answering a questionnaire in the past but I haven't been able to locate it, is this what I would be doing, and then posting it in this thread?

Thank you,
Joanna

GUIDELINES FOR GIVING HOMOEOPATHIC CASE INFORMATION

It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.

1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?

Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE.

You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide. Do not put all your complaints into each of the 7 questions. Discuss one problem at a time. If you have, for example, a headache with nausea, do each component separately too (what makes the head pain worse or better, what makes the nausea worse or better).

As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.

Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.

Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.

Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.

If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
8. Describe your menstrual cycle

9. Also give these details

a) Body type and build
b) Skin colour and texture
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat

10. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.

After answering this I will probably have more questions.

ANXIETY/PANIC
1. What exactly happens?
Pulse increases, stomach becomes upset, can't concentrate, breathing becomes difficult.

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
My stomach starts to feel uncomfortable and I notice that I'm taking quick, shallow breaths and my pulse is starting to increase. I feel my stomach symptoms worsen, nausea or indigestion increases, I can feel the gas forming in my stomach, wanting to escape, but I am so anxious that I can't burp.. and I start thinking about what I would do if I needed to throw up. I plan routes in my head. I almost hyperventilate and I stop being able to concentrate. I start gripping the back of my neck with my hand, squeezing my neck (helps to prevent me from feeling like I need to gag). If I am in public or out of the house them the symptoms progress faster. I can feel my bowels react and start moving. I need quiet, peace, breathing, space, I need to be alone in case I vomit. I'm afraid of vomitting.

What I do when I panic seems to have changed over these past few months, maybe because of all the remedies I have been on. Initially it was always a pacing panic. Now most of the time I need to lie or sit as still as possible so my stomach can calm down. If I feel like I need to throw up then pacing is the last thing I want to do. Perhaps as my stomach symptoms have gotten worse over the past few months, my panic has changed?

The anxiety isn't always panic. It starts as anxiety and can turn into panic if the conditions are right. Sometimes it goes away quickly if I can focus on something else for long enough.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Any worsening of stomach symptoms, being in a car, being out of the house, being with other people.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?
If I can find a space to be alone where no one can get to me. When I have anxiety at home, I close myself in my room and tell my husband that he can not come in. If our son needs me, then too bad, he will have to take care of him until I am able to leave the room. If I am out in public, then if I can find a place to hide, I feel better. Preferably somewhere dark where no one can see or hear me. Sometimes just thinking about where I would go helps me. Burping helps a lot, but the anxiety means I'm not relaxed enough to burp. Distraction helps. Sometimes I ask my husband to dig his fingernails into my knuckles while he's holding my hand. This usually provides enough of a distration to kick me out of it (OUCH it hurts though!). Sitting very still helps.

5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
Stomach problems, when I start to wonder if I'm going to need to throw up.

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
Randomly, doesn't matter.

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
Problem started in June of 2001, after an engagement was broken because he loved someone else. I was working at an internship at the place where he was working and I was afraid of running into him. I was in the cafeteria eating my lunch when my first panic attack happened.


FATIGUE/EXHAUSTION
1. What exactly happens?
I feel so exhausted that I can't get up.

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
I feel without energy, exhausted, like my body is processing or digesting something that is taking all its power. I need to lie down and stop moving and close my eyes.

Sometimes it isn't so intense, and most of the time I feel like I have a low-grade exhaustion like the one I described, just not as intense. The less intense ones last longer.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Not lying down. If I continue to stay standing and moving around, it will continue to get worse.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?
Lying down, napping.

5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
I feel like I have more exhaustion if I eat sweet things, but I'm not sure. When I stopped eating sugar in my breakfast, these stopped for a while, but I'm now having them again.

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
Doesn't matter.

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
These episodes started happening sometime after I started NAET treatments for food allergies. I once had blood drawn while I was feeling this way and my blood sugar reading was 63 - LOW!


LACK OF MOTIVATION
1. What exactly happens?
I am so unmotivated I can't even refill my water glass or go to the bathroom

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
If I notice I have laundry to fold, I may have a twinge of motivation and brings me to standing and takes me over to the laundry basket. Halfway there I lose my motivation, I start to think 'what's the point? I am so tired, I don't want to do this.' and I turn around and go back to the couch.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Continuing to not do anything. If the house is a mess it makes my motivation worse.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?
If the messy house is cleaned by someone other than me. Or, if I can motivate myself to do a little bit, I sometimes can survive off the intertia for a while and continue to have motivation. But a lot of times even if I do a little bit, I will all of a sudden lose the motivation and stop mid-task to go sit down again.

5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
Messy house. Having a lot to do. Exhaustion.

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
Doesn't matter.

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
I feel like I have always had issues with motivation, but the addition of more responsibility to my life (having a child), coupled with my exhaustion, I feel has multiplied my lack of motivation. I've never felt this deep of a lack of motivation before. It almost feels like resentment has something to do with it. Resentment for having to clean everything and take care of the baby all the time.


STOMACH ISSUES
1. What exactly happens?
Nausea, burping.

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
I experience nausea daily, but there are two different kinds. There's the background nausea that I experience every day at various points, and then there's the INTENSE nausea that feels like my intestines just spit a bunch of stuff back into my stomach. Rancid, belching, I-need-to-throw-up type of nausea. I never throw up though.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Walking around, moving around, car rides, lots of noise or talk, crying baby, needing to take care of said crying baby.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?
Being still. Either lying down propped up, or sitting.

5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
The INTENSE nausea is triggered by an empty stomach. I usually have that nausea hours after eating.

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
Doesn't matter!

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
The background nausea has just been in the past few months. I was being treated homeopathically with several different remedies, somewhere in there my nausea increased.
The INTENSE nausea I have had occuring since I was a child. I would call them my 'daily stomach aches' and these ones would usually occur after breakfast but before lunch. Made worse by taking flintstone vitamins. Currently, the time of day doesn't matter, I can have them at all times.

1. What exactly happens?
Stabbing pains under my left rib cage

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
Like someone is stabbing me! It doesn't happen all the time, and when the stabbing pain isn't present there is usually always a dull pain in that spot. The stabbing pains usually happen 5+ times a day, at random times. I haven't been able to determine a pattern.

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
A few years back, my husband got the stomach flu. I was SO FREAKED OUT about getting it myself that I lived in fear for a few days. The fear was brutal, though, gut wrenchingly so, I seriously wanted to die I was so afraid. Shortly after this experience, I started noticing that my left ribcage was poking out much further than my right ribcage, and it was painful. An ultrasound showed an inflammed muscle, and they told me it would go away on its own and I must have pulled it somehow. The swelling went down, but the pain never stopped.

Constipated!

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.

Nausea from motion sickness.
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.

Depression!

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.

Nothing that I've noticed.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?
Hope. If someone offers me hope in healing.
A project. I have project ideas all the time, and I do them. I had an idea for a quilt, so I made a quilt (first one). I wanted to be a programmer so I went to college and became a programmer. I wanted to decorate cakes for a living, so I learned how and started my own business. Unfortunately my mind for projects has not been well lately, there is no time for them anymore anyway. I am highly motivated by money. Sometimes to help temporarily with the depression I will open up our budget and make adjustments and fiddle around and think about what it would be like to not have debt, and punch in some numbers to see how long it will be until we're out of debt..

Not sure

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?

Late pregnancy, I stopped being able to think. I quit my job as a computer programmer because I could no longer focus or problem solve. It also got worse the first time I went on Zoloft, 10+ years ago.


Please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.
I was separated from my mom right after birth, for 24 hours. I was under observation because I wasn't born within 24 hours of her waters breaking. They poked and prodded me. For the first 6 weeks of my life I screamed whenever I wasn't wrapped tightly or when I wasn't in the snuggly my mom put me in. She pretty much kept me in the snuggly, attached to her, for the first 6 weeks!

When I was 8 we moved from Oklahoma and I was very upset about leaving my friends. My mom tells me that after we moved I was never the same happy confident little girl. More quiet, reserved, had a very difficult time making friends. In junior high I rarely talked to my 'friends'. We'd sit together at lunch and they would have the conversation and I would sit and listen and not say anything at all. Strange set up now that I think about it. I made a few closer friends as I moved into high school, and that was better.


Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.
Right now I don't deal with them very well at all. I don't like talking about problems and prefer to just ignore them. I don't feel like I have the ability to work through any problems right now, so I don't even address them. When my husband tries to talk about them, I shut down. I ask him if we can talk about it later, but it never gets talked about. I can't deal with anything. I live for my son's nap and the few hours I have at night while he is sleeping. If he has a hard night or a short nap, I am in shambles because I didn't get enough time alone. Even when he sleeps well and long, I never feel like I have enough time alone.


Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.
I have kept impeccable health records, and have spent so many hours researching so many different things, trying to find something that will help me. I tend to overthink my symptoms and try to put them together in ways that don't fit. I am so wrapped up in my health that I feel like I haven't lived for a very long time.

But hope in recovery revitalizes me, if only for a little bit, until the phrase 'If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is' proves itself.

I don't enjoy things. I just.. don't. I try to think of what I like to do and the only thing I can think of it sitting in front of the computer, watching online tv.

I am always worried about something, which I think keeps me from having fun. I'm worried about Nico mostly, whether he's hungry, happy, well.

I miss dreaming. Starting a few weeks after Nico was born, I stopped having dreams. I feel like they've started to pick up again only just recently, but I still have rarely any. I feel like I'm missing out on a large part of how my brain processes stuff. A month ago I finally had a huge terrible dream, just like I used to have, and I woke up feeling like my old self ('old self' being before Nico was born), if only for a few minutes.

In general my dreams, when I have them, are filled with running away from someone evil, tornadoes, cars I can't control and public restrooms that all have overflowing toilets and no privacy.


Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.

A lot of my anxiety was because I was afraid of throwing up. Up until that point I hadn't thrown up since I was in the third grade. A few years ago I finally threw up for the first time in 20 years, and since then have had more and more success in getting over my fear of vomitting. Now I feel like I'm at the point where I really don't like it, but I'm not afraid of it like I used to be. The thing I'm afraid of still is throwing up in public, in front of other people, even in front of my husband! This seems to drive a lot of my anxiety.


Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.
Childhood was great, mom was stay-at-home, dad was in the military for half of my childhood so we moved a lot in the early years. We played outdoors a lot and generally had a lot of fun. When my mom had a job for a few months I was very upset and swore up and down that when I had kids I would never work. We were all very close, though, and I loved spending time with my family as a child. As I moved into junior high, though, I became very unruly. I was very very mean to my mom, yelling and screaming and slamming doors. My mom asked me once why I was so mean to her and apparently I told her that it was because I knew she would still love me.

I used to have these days where I felt 'off'. I couldn't describe it other than feeling like there was something not right. There was one 'date night' my parents were going to have but I was so upset about them leaving because I felt funny, that they decided to stay home. I still get these feelings every once in a while, seems to happen more when things are different than normal, during change.

As a young child I had a lot of ear infections, always treated with antibiotics.


If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
I crave baked sweets, juicy fruits, chocolate

2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
I crave milk, and orange juice

3. What your sleep is like
My sleep is broken up by my son, who still wakes about 4 times a night (even though he's 17 months old!). I sometimes have trouble getting back to sleep. If my son sleeps a good chunk, I often wake up anyway, to use the restroom or maybe because I'm just used to waking.

4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
I don't like hot or cold. I chill very easily. I also am anxious during thunder storms. I've always attributed this to spending a few years in Oklahoma as a child. I still have nightmares about tornadoes.

5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
I am very sensitive to loud noises! I hate them! I also can't stand background music, I would rather it just be turned off.

6. What your general level of energy is like
Below human

7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
Low.

8. Describe your menstrual cycle
Menarche at 16 years old. Cycles are 25-26 days long, cramps before/during period, more depression and irritability than normal a few days before period is due. Period is usually light, lasts 5 days.

9. Also give these details

a) Body type and build
Tall and thin, but have been described as graceful

b) Skin colour and texture
Pale, 'fair', yellowish. Texture seems normal? I have dry hands and lips that crack and bleed, nondescript bumps on my knees, mole on my left arm.

c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
Just under my arms

d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
Not sure how to describe these things! Sweat smells bad, no distinct body smell, stool smells old, flatus smells like the stool, urine smells heavy, like there are lots of things in it.

e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat
Stool is dark brown, with a lot of pale speckles, urine is pale yellow, sweat is clear.

10. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.
I don't think I had any vaccine reactions. I took Amoxicillan a few years ago and itched all over until I stopped it. The anti-depressants I've been on all caused me nausea. Well-Butrin made me feel crazy and hyper.

I also wanted to give an update on what my previous homeopath had prescribed me:


After Nico was born, I started doing NAET treatments to help deal with food allergies. I feel like my 'dead' symptoms started around this time. I stopped being able to feel emotions and only had anger, irritability and resentment. I also stopped dreaming. I was able to stop taking Zoloft after 10+ years of being on it, all because the dead feeling had stopped all of my panic attacks. The deadness just continued to get worse. I started seeing a homeopath in June. She prescribed Phosphoric Acid 200C, to be taken 4 times in one day and then again 2 weeks later. I was to do this for 12 weeks but only lasted 8 before I was so sick of feeling like crap that I pushed up our appointment.

This is what happened while taking the Phosphoric Acid:
1 - I had my first postpartum period 2 days after my first dose.
2 - I was able to cry a few times (hadn't been able to before this)
3 - Started having panic attacks again (last time I had had one was before Nico was born)
4 - Depression worsened
5 - Digestion problems worsened

During my next appointment she decided to try me on Arsenicum 200C, to take it several times a day and to stop if I felt it was making things worse. I took it for 2 days before I stopped taking it. Same problems, maybe a little less panicky than before.

We then talked on the phone and she prescribed Sepia 200C. I only had 30C with me at the time, from my kit, so I started taking that until I could get the 200C. I started the Sepia a week after I had done the Arsenicum. I took 30C right before bed and had an immediate aggravation, I became extremely afraid of being alone at night. My husband works nights. I became afraid of burglars, and demons. I couldn't fall asleep because every sound had me looking at the door. I had to sleep with the lights on. This lasted about a week before I could be relatively calm enough to sleep well at night on my own.

I felt a little more connected to my son and husband while taking the Sepia, and even though completely exhausted I was able to push myself to do things that needed to be done, like go grocery shopping and pick up stuff off the floor.

After relaying what I was feeling to my homeopath, she told me to alternate Sepia with Psorinum every other week. Some of the anger toward husband and son came back. And I started having episodes of feeling faint, low blood sugar, having to lie down and barely able to breathe I had no energy and was so close to fainting. I needed to eat all the time in order for the fainting episodes to not happen. They finally went away after 4 days. Digestion got worse, feelings of fullness and nausea, and anxiety/panic surrounding these feelings. It felt like too much work to do anything. No energy or motivation, couldn't even refill my water glass I was so tired and depressed.

Caught a cold, and took Kali Bichromicum 30C, and within 5 minutes I felt great. Not just cold symptoms were gone, but symptoms I've had for a very long time. I had energy, motivation, hope, joy, and I no longer had the anger and irritation. Didn't last very long... I tried to recreate the feeling by taking more of the Kali Bichromicum but it didn't work.

So more than a month passed, and I had my next appointment, and she prescribed Lac Humanum 200C, for I was also having a strange sensation while breastfeeding (have always had this, this wasn't a new symptom). The Lac Humanum did nothing for the breastfeeding sensation. I did get violent heartburn and nausea that sparked a panic attack. Stomach issues continued to be at a high, depression issues continued to be at a high. The feeling that I needed to be taken care of increased while on Lac Humanum.

Another month, she said she would start over with my case, and eventually prescribed Silica 200C. Twice a day. It seemed to help a bit with energy, but I could only take it for 4 days before I had to stop because every time I took it, my stomach instantly started feeling full and I would burp and burp and burp and burp and burp. I had to antidote one dose with Nux Vomica to stop that feeling. It also upped my hunger and feelings of weakness. She told me to reduce to 30C. For a few days of taking it, after taking the 30C I would feel calmer and my stomach aches would go away. But the energy I had on the 200C waned and I started feeling depressed again.

3 weeks after starting the 200C, homeopath switched me to taking Sulphur 6x twice a day for 3 weeks. I lasted 2 weeks and a few days before I stopped because the burning and acid reflux were too much for me, not to mention the increase in constipation. After stopping, I had a very bad depressive episode and then a few days of increased stomach issues. While on the sulphur I seemed to stop feeling depressed.

Now I'm feeling tired, exhausted, unmotivated, irritated, and am starting to get depressed again. I am hating sitting through each day, waiting for the night time so my son will go to sleep and I can watch tv and just sit without having to think.

From the look of that previous treatment plan, there seems to be no understanding of your case.

You have given a good whack of information there. I will start looking over it and see if any further questions come up.

Tons of stuff, I know, and I'm still worried I forgot something important :/

One chronic thing I forgot to mention:

1. What exactly happens?
Irritability/anger

2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
Like everyone is out to get me and no one understands or even wants to understand. The irritability is sometimes outright anger. I sometimes get so angry that I throw things.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Someone talking to me or getting in my way while I'm doing something.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?
Everyone leaving me alone, not talking to me, letting me do my own thing. Most of the time eating makes me feel a little better.

5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
From not getting time alone. From something requiring my attention, plans changing, something/someone not living up to my expectations.

6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
Doesn't matter.

7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
I've always been irritable, but since my son was born it has been much worse.

Sorry to keep adding more, but one of the symptoms I've been experiencing a lot of lately is dizziness. Most notable when I move my head too quickly. If I get it while walking then it's likely I'll run into a wall or something because I can't get my bearings.

Another prevalent one has been the anxiety. The anxiety is like I can't catch my breath, and it seems to start in my stomach, with nausea and acidity. I'll notice how gross I feel in my stomach and then realize I need to start breathing and taking in more oxygen, otherwise it will get worse. It almost feels like adrenaline, like maybe if I run around in circles for a little bit I could get rid of it. (But then if I did that I would have serious indigestion. Running, for me, is out of the question with my stomach problems. I can hear things sloshing around in there whenever I move too quickly. Even the thought of running gives me indigestion). Wow. Now I have indigestion. UGH!

Do you have any questions for me?

Tonight I all of a sudden started feeling faint. Now I feel like I'm sweating and I feel very very faint. I am so sick of all these crazy symptoms! I seem to be experiencing a lot of my discomfort when I feel like I need to have a bowel movement.

Today a terrible exhaustion episode happened after drinking water. I always drink my water at room temperature and I drink a lot at once, because I'm thirsty. It seemed like after my body was done digesting the water, that I could walk about again. A lot of times I feel very thirsty (especially when I'm having a nauseous stomach episode), and my mouth gets dry, but I can't drink the water because I know it will make my stomach problems worse and will take that much longer to digest all the stuff that's in my stomach.

I go from good to bad so quickly, and from bad to good so quickly. So frustrating!

I know you must be terribly busy! I would like to relay some stuff to you in private, if you are still planning on taking my case?
