diarrhea

Oct 17, 2019 - 1 comments

It's been 3 weeks and counting.  I've been having explosive watery diarrhea every single day.  It's hard to stay hydrated.  Every time I try to get out of bed, I'm feeling dizzy and fainting no matter how slow I move.  Lucky that I'm temporarily living in a small apartment, so I can hold on to the wall and scoot to the kitchen to get the fluids. My resting heart rate while lying down is around 125.  A trip to kitchen would bump it up to 150.  Tonight I also get a 102.2 degree fever with severe migraine headache, very nauseated.  Sometimes I woke up from stomach pain in the middle of night and it can last 6-8 hours.  The pain meds hurt my stomach and I'm too dizzy and weak to get, so I just hugged two heating pads (one on tummy one on back) and curl up in a ball to wait for the pain to subside.  I can't believe that my doctor thinks all of this are just because of stress.  My CEA is slightly elevated above when my cancer was first diagnosed, but since it's still within normal range, no one is doing any further investigation at this time.  I lost 13 lbs over the last 3 weeks, and my BMI dropped from 18.5 to 15.97.  I hope that either things get better, or I get diagnosed very soon...... coz I cannot hang in there like this much longer.
