For the past few weeks I’ve been “sick”. I put sick in quotations because doctors don’t know whats wrong exactly and my normal doctor just told me to treat for H.Pylori as I fit the symptoms and I’ve felt a bit better since doing that but I still have some problems lingering but I feel they are related to something other than any type of bacterial infection as I know my body and I don’t feel sick at all.
The full story in a nut shell: One night I randomly woke up having a very bad anxiety attack and felt like I was going to vomit.
Let me also say I may have also been in an overtraining state at this point. I was in the midst of a very CNS intense schedule for wrestling (maxing on upper body and lower body twice a week, doing speed and agility drills, + HIIT).
Anyway, 1 xanax, 1 cup of tea, and 4 hours later I finally fell asleep. For awhile I had some bad anxiety attacks going on at night. I eventually started taking Amoxicillin/Biaxin/Prilosec combo to treat H.pylori. Anxiety calmed WAYYYY down. I get a little anxious at night still but overall feel 20x better than before.
My nausea during the day has also subsided…except when I eat carbs or veggies.
I’ve been taking 2 prilosec a day to treat the H.Pylori and to also treat a possible ulcer and have felt ok eating food like turkey, chicken, ham, olive oil, cheese etc. but when it comes to veggies and/or fruit I get a burning feeling in my upper abdomen and sometimes gas and nausea if I eat to much.
At first I thought I may be low on HCL (I came to this conclusion after reading some stuff on HCL testing and also the HCL diaries thread on here) because of the prilosec so I lowered my dose to 1 instead of 2.
What could be causing this? Am I right in thinking this is low HCL? Before I got “sick” I was always able to tolerate fruits and veggies pretty well. I had some soft stool and gas here and there but nothing this severe. When I eat proteins + fats my stood is solid, no foul smell, and I have little to no gas at all.
I’ve also dropped from 195lbs to 178 and feel pretty fatigued most of the time. I also think this has to do with the fact that I was eating 4,000 calories a day and 200-250 carbs and now I’m eating about 2,300 calories a day and about 10 carbs because of these weird symptoms and intolerances.
The doctors aren’t sure what to do in this situation and neither am I.
