I have eosinophilic esophagitis. On...
I have eosinophilic esophagitis. On Tuesday 3/6 I woke up vomiting. There was a stomach bug going around that has affected many people the same way. I suffered fatigue and nausea the rest of Tuesday and Wednesday, but felt mostly fine by Thursday 3/8. Except. Any time I try to eat anything solid, I have stomach pain, nausea, and/or diarrhea.
I can drink gatorade/powerade, ginger ale, and water. I can drink an egg-based protein shake that has none of my allergens, if I only drink a small amount at a time (about half a serving, or no more than 4 oz). More than that doesn't cause diarrhea, but it does cause pain and nausea. I have no access to bananas or apple sauce and have tested allergic to wheat and rice (and most other grains). I have not tolerated yogurt well, even in small amounts.
I have been losing weight, but not precipitously, so I'm not worried about that, and while I don't have an abundance of energy, I generally feel fine. I have been wondering if this might be EoE related, and if I should just stick to things I know are safe for a couple weeks until the inflammation has a chance to heal, or if I should keep trying different things?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
