I recently moved to a different country. Running low on money, I've been eating the same thing every single day, because it's cheap - salami sandwiches.
About two weeks ago, a friend gave me some buffalo wings. I'm usually just fine with spicy food, but I think the sudden introduction of something different - and spicy, at that - irritated my system. All night I had reflux problems and then the next morning, stomach pain, gas, and diarrhea.
The problem is that I've had this going on every morning since then. Shortly after I wake up, the pain starts, and I end up in and out of the bathroom for the first hour or two that I'm awake. The trips are frequently not productive, but the pain comes and goes anyway, in addition to some gas.
As a full time student, it's really bad for my morning classes...
My diet has changed a bit, since I recently discovered I could buy fish and chicken for 3 Euro. I think the foods I'm eating are more balanced now, and I haven't been living off of solely salami sandwiches for about a week.
