Not sure if it's related to ibs/ibd issues or the sleep apnoea or by what I'm reading if all these things including the sleep problems are all somehow connected my right eye doesn't hurt a great deal maybe a 1 on pain scale just can't focus looking straight ahead very bright lights make me dizzy feels wonky or clicky waters so much have to keep going and splashing water on my face

Are you asking about both sleep problems and eye problems? If that is the case ,have you asked your doctor to check your blood levels? I don't know about the eyes.

Asking if it could be related to the bowel/stomach issues as there seems to be quite a few symptoms that some have on here that sound the same

Are you on Prednisone? And if so,is your blood pressure normal?

I had a somewhat similar issue and Prednisone was the culprit as it increased my blood pressure and hence led to problems with my eye pressure.

That's a little bit high, but nothing to be concerned about.

You could try drinking hibiscus tea and eating bananas. I know this doesn't sound like much, but believe me hibiscus tea works wonders with blood pressure; it stabilizes it and it has worked for me.

Good for you.

Before I was diagnosed with Crohn's, I wasn't a big fan of bananas, or let's say I have never craved them. Now they're a cornerstone of both breakfast and dinner for me.

Haha! Don't worry, it doesn't taste anything like earl grey; I have tried both and hibiscus tastes more like raspberry tea or something. I totally agree that earl grey tea tastes horrible, though.

I know about the struggle of not being able to eat normal, and it really sucks especially when you live with your family and they're eating all they want all the time. Arrrrgh... the struggle is real.

I have been using rosemary, thyme and basil in making sauces and cooking generally.

I hope that the curry will turn out good.

Chilli is OK?! o.o I would totally spend the whole day crying from the cramps if I got that into my stomach. I remember the last time I ate some meat that was seasoned with a little bit of chilli and things were very unpleasant.

Well, to be honest, I wouldn't be able to tolerate curry at all. The whole broth and spices combination is just a no for me.
