^direct quote from my latest email to my gastroenterologist
So dysautonomia is definitely cramping my Parisian style now. Nausea, bloating, stomach pain, no appetite…the whole shebang. I’ve had a hard time moving around and haven’t eaten a whole lot, which has resulted in lazy, sick days. Those should not be legal in Paris! But, of course, my body does not recognize geographical cues and continues to wreak havoc. My doc decided to up my Reglan dose, which put my body in a state of shock and panic. So that didn’t last long. And since these symptoms are relatively new, I don’t know what to do or what to expect.
But what pains me the most (more than the actual pain itself) is that I am considering heading home early and cut my trip short. That kills me.
