Pretty normal for me, as I generally only eat dinner (but still fart all day)!

You only eat dinner?!! Blimey.

Have you gained weight recently or have had problems breathing through the nose?

If so, do you snore? If so, you could have snoring which causes you to wake up during the night. If it is really bad, it could be sleep apnea.
I'd say my weight's been fluctuating around 5kg since the start of December. I only tend to snore when I've been drinking (which I haven't been this week), but I seem to wake up either because I'm too hot, or because of a dream.

I'm feeling a little better, I do think part of it is probably worrying (I've always suffered from strong waves of nausea when I worry about something). The situation with the OH is terrible, and on top of that, I just spoke to him on the phone, and the first thing he said was "I'm dying". He sounds ill, like a really bad cold, maybe sinusitis or something (he's forgetting the 2 months of bronchitis I had!).

I think maybe it's digestive. I've always been quite a gassy person, but sometimes holding it in can make me feel really, really ill. I'm terribly sorry if the person whose house I went to dinner for this evening is reading this () but after letting it all out, I feel much better! It's a terrible (although often entertaining) affliction that I seem to have, no matter what I eat/drink. Might have to do some research on foods/drinks that settle the stomach.
Kam, it could be possible that you are suffering of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Which could give you symptoms like you described. It isn't fun, can be painful sometimes and be the reason of many differents problems. If when you are stress it tend to do in your digestion system, this could be also a link to it.

Let me know if it could be it!

Drink loads of water for now!

It doesn't sound like OSA then, but it does help to lose the weight. I
have lost 2kgs for my New Year's resolution.

I don't think it's IBS, as I am fully functional without any problems in that area... I just guff a lot.

I think stress affects your whole body, and I'm feeling quite a lot of emotional stress at the moment. My mum is coming to visit in a week, I'm hoping that having her around will calm my nerves and help me relax.

Oh, and I aaaaalways drink loads of water! Litres of the stuff, love it!

Well done for losing that already. I find it extremely difficult to lose weight, although I must admit I'm not making as much effort as I could. I'm just trying to be "sensible" without obsessing over it. I'm sure you're right and that I'll feel better once I've lost some weight (I mean I can actually feel the extra fat, it's horrible!).

Ah... chance'd be a fine thing! Actually, my lifestyle isn't very hectic, I don't need more time to myself, quite the opposite actually. Wish I could take a holiday to Mexico.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Never. But that sounds like something that would be affected by alcohol, doesn't it? I am definitely better than I was when I started this thread. Alcohol = bad. But also good.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Do you (or have in the past) drink Farmer beer (from Landi), in the brown 50cl bottle size?

This is enough to turn the guts of a Komodo dragon, and would more than explain your "guffing" and lethargic gut-rot feeling.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Okay, I am going to try for the one everybody forgets most often and is free, easy and perfectly safe to solve.

Are you drinking 2L of water per day? If not, give it a try. Get a 1.5 L bottle and make sure that you go through it at least in pure aqua!

A lot (a majority some health care professionals think) of fatigue, head-aches, nausea and many of these afflictions can just caused by being dehydrated. Stick to the water for a week or two at least though (if you are not doing it already) as your body needs to get used to actually getting the water. This should also help flush a lot of toxins out of your system.

For the telephone calls to Mexico, can I also suggest Skype pay-as-you-go to landlines which cost between 1.9 and 3 euro cents per minute. If your side Skype connection is good, then you will get a good connection to the landline in Mexico.

Other than that, best of luck and I hope you feel better soon!

Not really a beer drinker! Although, for the benefit of others reading, my OH always feels run down and bloated on beer.

I keep a 1.5L bottle next to the sofa and estimate I drink 3 bottles a day (ie. 4.5L a day). As far as calls to Mexico go, as I said before, no landline to ring so this is not possible.

Sorry about your gas troubles although you seem to enjoy the petards...makes for a fun read.

I think it is your heart. You do not know if he is ok, alive, well, still interested, the lack of communication is not very reasuring, is it. You should invest in your social life (and I don't mean drinking), reap the benefits of living here, hang out with nice people, find new frienships and hobbies, travel around and just give him and yourself a break without all the nerves. Long distance relationships are a major bitch. Write eachother nice letters, send little things, appreciate the distance...

Re: Nausea and fatigue

I know he's still interested. He didn't ask me to move in with him (to a foreign country, no less) for no reason. I understand it's not his fault and that the situation is dictating when we can('t) talk. I do try and keep busy and, like I say, my mum's coming in a week. I can't wait - it will be so nice to have some company at home!
