One Week Until I See a Digestive Specialist

Thursday, October 12, 2017

I've been waiting about 5 months but I'm finally going to see a digestive/motility specialist next week. They are supposed to be some of the best in the state/country. We'll see. I've been miserable. I have these issues with deep belching no matter what I meat, even if its meat.

What worse is diarrhea daily and I wake in the middle of the night with my heart racing that only seems to slow down when I do all this deep belching. I sound like a man who just drank a six pack. All my gas is upper. Its never lower.

I just hope he can help me. I can tell I've fallen into depression since I'm not able to sleep at night. I usually get 3-4 hours at night and 3-4 hours of sleep in the daytime. My metabolism is junk and I can't lose weight. I'm supposed to be able to address all that with my doctor next Friday. Wish me luck.

    I am glad you can go see a specialist. It helped me a ton! I was gaining weight uncontrollably despite exercise and watching my calories, I was having diarrhea daily, major depression, moodiness, insomnia. My gastronenerologist slowly helped me find small fixes and I am finally feeling better with the last two suggestions (I'm on medicine but also following a low fiber diet). I hope your doctor can do the same!!

    I wish you much luck! I deep belch for 2 hours. And I know what you mean by your heart racing. There are times when I've had panic attacks because of it. I get pains in my back around my shoulder blade. This has been happening for years.

    My sweetie was jealous of how deep I was able to belch. He called it Basso Profundo. That is, he was jealous until he experienced it himself. It's just plain miserable.

    I sincerely hope you find the answers you need.
