    In the past year my stomach has been playing up on me. Even years before my stomach was always funny but never really bad, but this year it's really hit pretty bad.
    Every time I drink or eat my stomachs doesn't handle it well, and it makes me sick or I need to use the toilet ( very often) because of this if my stomach doesn't do it straight away after ingesting food, it does it at night, which is causing problems to my sleep. I don't sleep very well how it is, so adding on my stomach issue has just about done it for my sleep. It's also made going out an issue. i originally went to the docotrs before because i thought it could be ibs, but i didnt recieve medicatiom because i refused a blood test (i am absolutley terrified of needles snd injections) but ive been thinking i really should go to the doctors about it. so i am just wondering is snyine experiencing the same or similar issues to me, if so advice would be really nice. also tips about blood tests and dealing with taking blood would be helpful too.
    sorry if this is too long.

    Blood test wise, drink plenty of water and look away from it, you can ask for numbing gel to help.
