Day 10 ss feeling poorley :( Any suggestions?


Helsinki Vampire

I'm on day 11 SS, havn't cheated, have lost 13lbs, feeling very pleased with myself :D

Today I woke up with incredible burning in my stomache, sore throat and sniffles. I think I may have caught flu from my significant other who has been vomiting and streaming with it for the last week.

I am currently on strong painkillers Tramadol & Paracetamol (max dose) for a spinal disc protrusion so I'm hoping this cold/flu won't last long. I'm scheduled for spinal injections into the disc within the next 2 weeks and need to be well as I can't be sneezing and coughing whilst the surgeon is trying to put huge needles in my spine under x ray control :(

Whats the best thing to do? Carry on with the diet or stop. Why is my stomache burning sooooo much? I was thinking that it's because my body needs more calories to fight the infection. I have had 2 litres so far today in a fairly short space in an attempt to stop the burning, but no, it hasn't worked!

Any suggestions?:wave_cry:

I'm so sorry to hear you're poorly. Big get-well hugs to you!

Call your CDC and ask her advice - that's what they are there for. She may suggest you move up to 810 or something to give your body a big more to fight with.

No sense in blowing the diet if you don't have to!

Thank you :)
Yes I think stepping up for a couple of days and avoiding carbs is probably the best option :) Just makes me feel a bit dissapointed though :(

I had a small tin of tuna last night. Still felt sniffly this morning but throats a bit better so I'm still Sole sourcing. Tonight I'm feeling much better :)
Thank you :D
