Abdominal Pain- Bloating


It've been a long week for me because I have been facing food poisoning- mainly diarrhea and stomach gas since the beginning of last week. And it lasted for 3 days until I recovered from the stomach discomfort.

Thus.. I continue my life- eat, sleep, work & movie without fully taking care of my stomach.

Last friday, I was waiting for J and didn't consume any food until 9pm. I had a quick bite & i experienced the abdominal pain again. I can feel there're a lot of gas in my stomach. without hesitation, I drank few cups of warm water and hope it gets better.

Still... i experienced the pain straight for 2 days. And on Sunday night, i decided to go visit a doctor nearby my house which is covered by my company insurance.... and I'm super suay that the clinic made me wait for 15 mins (when I walked my f*king way there when I can't even stand up straight) & announced that the doctor will not come in today due to emergency case...

I was like- if you can't commit don't even put the operations hour...

Ridiculous and I have to walk back my home again without any medicine.

Maybe because of  God mercy, I'm recovered the next day which is a Monday- so i could work :) And the best part is I discovered that there's a direct bus from my house to office :) and it costs me only 0.83 cents per trip w/ 3G accessible :)

Therefore, I researched several article to avoid stomach discomfort/ abdominal pain:

1. Avoid large fatty/ greasy meals (no more steamboat, buffet for me anymore)2. Eat one cup- approximately a 250 ml of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, etc.) a day to get sulforaphane to avoid constipation.3.Stomach cancer is more likely to be linked with high-salt diet (less salt)4.Consume the good bacteria & Plants: yogurt, sauerkraut, miso, bananas, garlic, asparagus, onions- High fiber diet is helpful5. Eat and drink slowly to improve the digestion system.6. Avoid drinking with straw ( less gas in stomach)7. Always maintain a balanced diet :)8. Keep a food diary to find out the possible cause for your stomach discomfort.9. Add in more carminatives such as peppermint or sage in your meal.

Now I need to get back to my salad- all green and yogurt diet :)

Need to admit that I'm no longer young :(
