Stomach Spasms

I managed to finally get some sleep but I slept all day. It's raining outside, so that may have helped some.

When I woke up, I felt like I had taken a long drive into the stomach. It's weird. I've also had spasms that feel like the nerve study I had from my stomach, but they make my whole body jump. It's a weird pins and needles feeling (like when your foot falls asleep) but it also has intense burning pain. I have also had esophageal spasms which radiate around my back. With those, it almost feels like I"m having a heart attack. I've been tempted to go to the emergency room but there's nothing they can do. The pain is preventing me from sleeping and the vomiting makes it much worse.

Right now, my throat is swollen and scratchy. It sounds like I'm talking to people through a box fan. I just ate some gluten free pasta and I'm hoping I'll be able to keep that down. It already burns like crazy. It's weird because the top of my stomach burns. Also, the bottom left part of my abdomen hurts ... but that's a new pain.

I'm just happy I was able to get some rest. A good night's sleep really makes a difference. My stomach did behave while I was sleeping and didn't wake me up. However, I feel hung over and still tired. I have no energy. I hope the food will stay down so that won't be a problem. I'm also going to drink lots of water and hope some of it stays down.

Well, let's hope the food stays down. Cross your fingers for me! <3
