I decided to go to the doctor about all of the stomach issues I've been having. The official diagnosis is still gastritis, but the doctor suspects I may have a small tear in my stomach lining, so she'll treat it as if it's an ulcer in the hope that it will improve. If it doesn't improve, I'll have to get an endoscopy. I really hope the meds will work. I'm still taking the probiotic as well. *crosses fingers*
She also gave me a topical NSAID for my intercostal strain (rib muscles are really sore). Since I can't take NSAIDs (that's what caused the whole stomach problem in the first place), she wants me to try this. I'm willing to try anything to alleviate the discomfort I've been having the last week or so.
Incidentally, according to the doctor's scale, I've lost nine pounds in the last month. Definitely not the way to go about losing it.
