I had to stay home sick today as I did not get any sleep last night because of stomach pain and nausea. I am also having fatigue that is so overwhelming and comes on so quickly that I feel compelled to stop whatever I am doing and go lay down. That is very strange as that never happens to me. So I called my PCP to tell her what was going on. She asked a few questions and then asked about any neww meds I'm taking right now and I told her the only new drug is Cymbalta, which is helping me tremendously. She wants me to come in tomorrow for a quick exam and some blood work.
This is kind of a step backwards as I have been feeling so good lately. But I knew something wasn't right when I started having nausea last Saturday and stomach pain that is going into my back for no apparent good reason. It started of as no big deal and is getting worse. If I sit up I feel better, but as soon as I lay down, the pain is excruciating. I feel like throwing up and am weak and terribly fatigued. Feels like the flu but I don't have a fever, chills or diarreah. Thankfully I still have some antinausea medicine that they gave me last year after my blood patch and it is helping a lot. Only problem is that it makes me sleepy. I hope tonight is a better night as I don't like taking off work especialy right now when everything is starting to gear up again after the holidays.
I'll see what my doctor thinks may be going on in the morning. Hope it's no big deal.
