Today was a good day, with an exception. I still had some lightheadedness getting up, but no stomach cramps. The lightheadedness disappeared quickly. However it reappeared at the end of a car ride.

2017-12-07 Recovery Day 276

Today was another so-so day the problem being again lightheadedness and stomach cramps. As before the problem started after getting up. I only had dry toast for breakfast to eliminate the possibility of vomiting. Again, as before by 9:00 the symptoms disappeared allowing me to have my morning walk. After the walk the lightheadedness and stomach cramps returned briefly at a lower level. By lunch time the symptoms were gone for the rest of the day. BTW, my back pain is present all day at various levels. For now I will accept it, but I am looking that the pain slowly starts to get less and less.

2017-12-06 Recovery Day 275

Today was another so-so day the problem being again lightheadedness and stomach cramps. The problem started today after getting up. I had only dry toast for breakfast to eliminate the possibility of vomiting. Because of the early signs, including the possibility of vomiting when in a car, I did not attend the early Coffee and Talk session at the Big Break Regional Park. Interesting by 9:00 the symptoms disappeared allowing me to have my morning walk. However, after lunch they were back for about another hour before disappearing for the rest of the day.

Today was another bad day the problem being again lightheadedness and stomach cramps. The problem started like yesterday about an hour after my morning walk, suddenly I had stomach cramps followed a bit later with lightheadedness. Resting got it under control, but the moment I start moving around to do some things, both came back. In the late afternoon both were gone but instead my back/shoulder discomfort appeared which required me to rest again.
