Hiya! So.... ok I just woke up from a little nap, had no idea you can get tired after a breath test!?
Ok so we started at 8:30u with the nurse taking my blood (brrrr don't you just hate giving blood??) and then the breath test began

I had to hold my breath for 15 seconds and then blow it to the device (had to do that twice for a good reading)
Then the nurse gave me this lukewarm mixture that was extremely sweet... no bad, but it was even too sweet for me, haha
After that the waiting of the first 30min. began (I had to do this every half hour for the next three hours)

30 minutes later I had to come back and do another breath test, so again holding your breath for 15 seconds and breath hard into the device
Now if the reading was under the -10 that would mean blowing into the device once... if it was above -10... you guessed it... do it again

Of course mine was already -12  and it kept going higher everytime I did another breath test, at one point I saw -48.... -56!?
The nurse would also ask with every breath test if I started to feel something (such as cramping, flatulence, nausea....)
Mwah..... no maybe a tiny bit of cramping and the odd burp??

Well that would soon change, hahahaha 
Soon real flatulence started to kick in, hahahahaha.... it felt like my intestens were filling up with air 

And when I had to take my very last breath test...... all of a sudden I started to get really heavy cramps (ohhhhh ohhh!!)
I couldn't even GO first..... I had to take the breath test first 

After I was done with all the tests I could finally GO!! 
And boy let me tell you..... I almost blew myself off the toilet, whahahahahaha..........................lmao 
Sooooo much air came out, hahaha, but the cramps were gone, hahaha 

SORRY IF YOU'RE EATING RIGHT NOW, hèhèhè (evil little laugh)

Now I have to wait until February the 17th to hear the results, when I go back to my MLD physician
I would be very surprised if the physician says they didn't find anything.... keep your fingers crossed for me.....
I just would like to get some answers, so I know what it is and what I can do about it 
Have a relaxed and cozy evening!

It's going to be an early day tomorrow.... I have to be in the hospital at 8:30u for a breath test 

I often have "problems" with my stomach, intestines, etc.
Last week I went to see a MDL physician for the first time and this monday I had an ultrasound to see if there weren't any little gallstones left since they removed my gall bladder or kidney stones
Fortunately there were no gallstones or kidney stones!! 

So next is a breath test to see if I'm allergic to gluten, lactose etc.
They only do these tests in our neighboring town at 8:30u in the morning....pfff that's way too early for me (not a morning person) and it's going to take 3 hours!!! 

During those 3 hours you're not aloud to eat, drink (and you have to be sober the day before from 22:00u) or do things which makes your heart beats faster and there for breathe faster... so no strenuous activities

So I'm taking my Copics and Magnolia stamped images with me, hahaha 

Fingers crossed time passes quickly, right!?
