A sour stomach

Just a quick health update – mostly for my own record keeping purposes for NIH. Thursday I missed work thanks to a very upset stomach. I woke up about 3:00 am with nausea. I hadn’t eaten dinner that evening because I really wasn’t feeling like eating, but didn’t really know why. But hey, when I don’t feel like eating I look at it a gift from the diet gods and I don’t ask too many questions.

Then I continued to be sick to my stomach into the morning hours. I think I started to get dehydrated because started feeling very light headed, having joint pain and a headache. I drank all the water I could stand without getting sick again and just spent the day in bed.

This morning I still felt a bit under the weather and tired, but I went to work anyway. I’ve got big deadlines at work right now. By this afternoon I was feeling better. I have a bit of a headache now, but that’s probably stress. I’m feeling a bit stressed out.
