calling in sick

Hello friends! how have you been? Good week? I hope so. Can't say the same here, though.

Things not great here (healthwise). I'm down with migraine and gastric. Been days.Sigh. Actually it's been quite a while I didn't get them so I happily (& foolishly) thought I might have grown out of the sickness. Wasn't really watching my diet and my mealtimes. Then I got hit 'badly' last Friday (just before the teaparty) and my head just don't feel right the following days.

I found out that one of my painkiller for migraine (ibuprofen) doesn't 'agree' with my gastric condition. Meaning I cured my headache but I got gastric. And my gastric usually trigger migraine! So here I am going around in circle, back and forth with these 2 sicknesses.

I tried reading up on home remedy for these conditions, thought I'd do away with painkillers, you know. But didn't find any. The only thing I knew is drinking warm water. Abstain from 'makanan sejuk & acidic' like bananas, pineapples, oranges, etc.
In addition, I break up my meals to..like..6 times a day. I feel I have to eat all the times otherwise my tummy would rumble and if I ignore I would start taste bile at the back of my throat and soon get headaches.

You guys know any better remedy? Appreciate your kind assistance here. Essential for me to get better before Friday. (I'll tell you why later).

Wishing you a better week ahead! Bye, bye!

Fabmom, aku gastrik teruk dulu, and I just went to kedai cina senseh tu bah, they will give you ubat from herbs,biji-biji hitam. Senseh tu just check my pulse kat tangan, and he said my stomach ada luka. Terror kan. Anyway, try la coz doctor punya ubat is to just treat the symptoms saje. Until now I dah cured. I believe !

whimsy - yea I tried those. exercise..in the gym and in the..'bedroom'. i went for body massage and sauna too. it worked for the headache but did nothing for the gastric. still there.

shabbymom - inda Sri. just got my period. Friday? nanti ah cerita.

min - ya kan. why didn't i think of that earlier. d mana la tabib cina berdekatan sini aa.

thnx for all your tips, kawan2. i believe it's all in the food juga. i hv to watch what i eat la.makan ubat & xcercise macam mana pun klo masa makan melantak 'tak hengat' jadi juga kan?
