I have been drinking diet pepsi for aobut 35 years or more. I amm 53, so that's what my body mostly survived on...about 220 oz per day. Recently, I got Thrush from my steroid inhaler, and it hurt to drink pop, so I switched and am now drinking about 200+ oz of water a day. And in the past few weeks went on a CPAP. My body is getting all these new good things, but is reacting poorly! I am bloated, gaining weight, my pulse rate is in the high 90's, my back (maybe kidney's) hurt, I'm craving food...especially carbs, and I just feel blah! Also, you would think I would pee a LOT, but it's less then before, and is mostly dark yellow. (I thought it would be very clear)???
In 2004 I had another episode with Aneroxia, and it was explained that why I quit losing weight after several month os starvation was because my body was in "starvation mode" and holding on to every calorie.
Is it possible that my body is holding the water in a similar way?
I will be seeing my MD tomorrow to try to figure out what's going on. I don't want to start drinkning pop again! I NEVER would have thougth I could have given it up! I used ALWAYS have at least one with me and one on hold.
Any ideas what's happening to me?
