At this point, both of you are stressed and tht can lead to all kinds of
symptoms including loss of appetite(tigh stomach from worries).

I am no doctor and can't diagnose, but remeber that stress will bring on
symptoms. ( I am not talking about her foot, which started this
discusion)

I hope it all straightens out soon, for both your sakes.

I was sick prior to going to the Dr. Not sure about her. But thanks!
