Yup, even a telehealth visit will do better than anything you can self diagnose. I’d even stay away from antacids as that could be a cause for more irritation.

He told me to take Tylenol…

Get amritdhara from any Indian grocery store. Gulp a drop with sugar and water. It’s concentrated Mint and will fix whatever issue you have

If it’s severe (like, can’t focus on other things, having trouble sitting up straight), that’s ER stuff. Don’t mess around with the abdomen! If more just annoying/uncomfortable, probably gas, get something like Gas-X.

Ok I tried I can sit up straight for a bit. Currently Uber eat buying Tylenol

Medical system is great. You’ll probably pay less than $50 for a visit. Go right now

Tylenol made me through the night. I need to go to the consulate this morning but will monitor how I feel later in the day. If I need to see a doctor should I go with walk in clinic? Since I am only visiting for a day

I will rub your belly to make it feel better 😘

Is it accurate for nutrition labels to use net carbs instead of total carbs when calculating calories? For example I was excited to find these 70 calorie bagels. But the math ain’t mathing with 5g of fat and 37g of carbs. I started doing some research and realized they used net carbs but I can’t find a consensus on whether or not it’s actually 70 calories or 168 calories. I’m doing CICO to lose the last few lbs so trying to be as accurate as possible, I would really appreciate any insight!
