Well, I have found what has been causing so many problems for me lately. I have GERD and the muscle that is supposed to close my stomach off from my esophagus doesn't close, it just stays open. So for now, I am controlling it with medication and (more importantly) a change in my diet.
Now that I have the reflux under control, I realize just how awful I felt all the time! I didn't know how bad my stomach hurt until it felt better. Now I get to learn to eat all over again. If I make a bad choice, my stomach lets me know. It's been a frustrating past couple weeks, but I know it will get easier and it will result in a healthier me!
