Well i've spent a year in and out of hospital with severe stomach and bowel problems. They kept doing basic blood tests and xrays and telling me nothing was badly wrong and that it was just my IBS. Well i've suffered with IBS since i was a teenager, and it never had me unable to bend or move cos of severe stomach pain. My intestines were clearly destroyed, as my bowel movements were coming out as greasy mucous. Then by the end it was just green, as was my vomit.
Eventually, my doctor said that this was my stomach lining coming away, and that something must be done. So she decided it could be a food issue. Then i went through the pain staking process of elimination in my diet. (Well i say that, i was barely eating the past few months anyway!)
Anyway within a few days of cutting the gluten out my diet, i started to feel slightly better. That was 4 weeks ago, and i can eat again now (gluten free of course), but more to the point, my stools are back to normal, and the excruciating stomach pains have almost gone!
I am currently waiting on the results of the blood test to see if i have coeliac disease, or if it's a gluten intolerance.
I just wondered if anyone else is unable to eat gluten?
Or even another food intolerance?
If so, please tell me abit about your story and what you had to endure before you were diagnosed...
