And it happened again...

Friday, November 22, 2013

Yeah, I threw up way worse today. At least it was AFTER work this time.
So time to get down to the figuring out of it all. What was in common two days ago (when I first threw up) that wasn't in common yesterday but was today....zucchini and celery. This is a curious thing. I looked up zucchini and interestingly found that many people have had such a reaction as I have to raw zucchini. Nausea, bloating and oftentimes the people also have vomiting. Okay then. So what is IN zucchini that could cause it? It looks like it could be oxalates. There are oxalates in zucchini, celery and spinach- which is the combination in my shake just before the worse vomiting I've done this week. SOOOO I'm thinking it could be oxalates. I don't like the list of what things have oxalates.

I already have a very limited list of foods I can eat due to allergies, including the nickel I have to narrow it down even more? It's looking like it. Well, at the very least, zucchini, it turns out, is known for being allergenic- who'da thought? So after this awful week with it being used in my shakes and upchucking them, I am going to definitely be done with zucchini.
On a better note, I went to the chiropractor today and he took care of my foot/ankle that I had twisted two weeks ago yesterday, and the other foot I'd landed on a rock sideways with, and my neck that really got nastied up from the conk on the head by the one pound curling iron that fell 1.5 feet onto my head the other day (Boy I sound like a clutz!). Plus all the back issues that came about from all those things happening. I am sore, from everything being back in place now, but no pain is a great thing. I did have to take a couple pain killers to help bring the swelling down. Hubby and I did some walking that helped ease some of the soreness, and went out for dinner (I had some steak and veggies and sf jello). So the day turned out good.

    Sorry to read your having a rough time. It's so frustrating when things like this happen and you have no idea why. I told my husband the other day, I research medical issues not to try to diagnose myself but to find out "Why" and "what" can I do to prevent it from happening or to make it better. It sounds like you've been doing the same thing.

    Sending happy thoughts your way and hoping you feel better and you find the cause for you becoming sick. emoticon

    It sounds like it is hard for you to find good food to eat, makes you wonder what they are doing to our food to make so many people have problems with the food.
