After 30 min from waking up this morning, I started getting really dizzy to the point of holding on to the walls so I won't fall, along with massive abdominal pain.  I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to handle this morning.  Taking my son to school, getting ready for work, working 4 hours until my doctors appointment but I knew I had to keep pushing myself to keep going.  I couldn't call into work and say I can't come in, especially since I got a promotion.  I spoke to my family doctor, made an appointment for 2pm.  All morning I tried to not think about the dizziness and the pain.  As the morning passed, I noticed I wasn't as dizzy and the pain had decreased, Thank God!  Finally arrived at doctors office.  After having 2 vials of blood draw, urine sample and speaking to my doctor, it was determined that I have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).  Apparently my spastic colon is working too hard and needed me to have a wake up call.   So not only do I have Gastroparesis, now I have IBS too.  Wonderful, sarcastically speaking of course.  My doctor gave me some samples to help calm my nerves to my colon.  Not sure if they will help or not.  I guess like everything else we shall see...
