Off the Bandwagon
I skipped the gym today. So glad that I am back into my routine.. I have a good reason though. I went back to the doctors today. The prilosec was giving me intense headaches! So I went back this evening and they drew some blood. They wanted to test my iron levels and to see if I have any of the antibodies that are found in people that have celiac disease. Once the blood tests come back we will go from there. With the blood test if things come up looking good then I will stick with the food journal and I was given a prescription for zantac. I will go back to my appointment at the end of July with my journal and we will see how it looks and what foods trigger the pain. If the blood tests show something that looks abnormal, like the presence of the antibodies, then the chance that I have celiacs is great and they will take the steps going from there. Like sticking a microscope down my throat apparently! I am happy to see that there is some sort of steps that we will be following to figure out what is going on.
On the bright side today was the first day I felt good. It was also the first day I went back to eating my typical diet of fruits and veggies. Whatever. I don’t even care anymore about proving anyone wrong. I just want to feel good and I guess I know what makes me feel good so I’m going to stick with it! Fried food and lots of bread and pasta is bad. Fresh fruits and veggies make my tummy happy!
