Ugh! Well I got some kind of bug at Christmas (half my family got sick with a stomach thing a few days afterward) that is making me feel wretched. What's worse I also have some kind of sinus infection or something going on. I've blown my nose so much (I've NEVER had this much snot come out of me before!)that I'm also blowing out blood. I have felt SOOO miserable since the Friday after Christmas! Last night I thought I was better and then suddenly got so queasy I sat on the bathroom floor for 1/2 an hour waiting to yak. Never happened, thank God, but I was having a racing heart and chest pain at the same time. It kind of freaked me out. Today I had a bad D attack and at the moment I'm having mild nausea (making ginger root tea as we speak!) How can we tell if it's a stomach bug or just the IBS? It feels the same! Oh, I also have a slight temperature (100 deg. F) for the last 3 days, so I guess I am fighting something, but I don't know if it's a sinus infection, stomach bug, or influenza! ACK! Wednesday and Thursday I was so tired and achy and a little queasy so I missed work, went in on Friday, thought I was fine, and then the racing heart/bathroom thing and D today. Ok, now I'm ranting, but I'm frustrated! I hate this IBS as I can't tell what I should be treating, the IBS or a stomach virus! ACK!Gotta go...anyone else ever have this happen to them?
