Help! I completed day 30 yesterday (yay!). I ate Whole30 today (minus a square of dairy-free dark chocolate) because I'm still having some issues that I want to solve before I reintroduce foods. The biggest one is acid reflux/indigestion. I had acid reflux pretty often before I started, and it's been less this month, but I'm still having problems with it. My acid reflux manifests as feelings of hunger and burping (and also some bloating), which makes things harder because when I feel hungry after I eat, I just want to eat more. I actually didn't burp very much before starting Whole30, but the first few weeks and this last week I've just been burping like crazy. It's kind of the worst! I also started having mild-moderate headaches the last week or so. I've been keeping a food journal, and I realized I've been eating almond butter/nuts and coffee w/ almond milk almost every day, and my worst acid reflux has happened a few hours after eating those foods. But some days I have no problems, and others I have really uncomfortable burping/reflux even w/ no nuts, etc. so I think there are other foods causing it, I just DON'T KNOW what they are. Very frustrating. I'm salting all my meals sufficiently (I think) and drinking enough water (at least 100 oz., I'm 146 lbs.). I get 8+ hours of sleep most nights. OH, and another problem: I've been really tired some days without really knowing why. Here are the things I want to try: 1. Staying Whole30 but eliminating coffee and nuts. 2. Not drinking with meals--I usually drink at least a glass of water with all my meals, and I guess that might cause poor digestion? 3. If no nuts/coffee doesn't do anything after a couple days, taking digestive enzymes with each meal. 4. If that doesn't work, using HCL w/ pepsin w/ meals to see if I have low stomach acid. 5. If that doesn't work... low FODMAPS? AIP protocol? Cutting eggs? I'm not sure what to cut. Any advice here? What do I do next? What can I try?
Hello everyone, I've just finished my whole30 journey yesterday, but lately I've been facing some serious digestive issues. The last few days were terrible, though everything I ate was absolutely compliant, I've been feeling very sick, and I had stomach ache as well. I couldn't find out whether it was because of any kind of food I ate or it was/is a virus I just got. The last two days were the worst, I've been burping all day and after lunch I got terrible stomach aches. 3 days earlier I had dinner quite late and I fell asleep soon after eating, waking up feeling sick and it didn't disappear for days. Could this cause such problems? Another thing I can think of is chia seeds. It happened even before knowing about whole30 that I had terrible stomach ache after eating chia seeds but I thought it's a healthy thing so it couldn't cause such symptoms, could it? Any ideas what might be wrong? I'd like to start reintroduction tomorrow but I'm afraid it would make it even worse. What should I do? Thanks in advance.
I'm not asking for advice about my known medical condition (achalasia), though maybe with the unknown one (digestive). Mainly I want to vent, particularly in a place where others know the frustration of dealing with something that puts road-blocks in your way. I have achalasia. It's sort of the opposite of GERD. The muscle between my stomach and my esophagus (the LES) doesn't relax properly. This means that swallowed food gets stuck in the esophagus. It causes distortion of the esophagus and destroys the muscles there, causing more swallowing problems. It causes pain similar to heartburn as the food sits there and ferments or breaks down in other ways. It causes regugitation, which is like vomiting but since it's not from the stomach it's apparently a different word. It causes aspiration (food/liquid in the lungs). And for me it also caused malnutrition and kidney stones. I had a laproscopic heller myotomy about 10 years ago. This involved cutting the LES, then wrapping the stomach around it and pinning the stomach to the muscle (fundoplication) to keep it open. It's been pretty successful. If I eat too fast or don't chew enough, food will get caught and it can be very difficult to clear it. Often leading to regugitation. In addition to this I have an undiagnosed digestive problem that sometimes leads to massive amounts of air coming up from my stomach. I know this usually happens a day or two before my cycle begins, but otherwise have no clue what causes it. It does happen on other days sometimes, but it happens with my cycle like clockwork. Because of the procedure I had, this air gets caught in the upper stomach pocket and causes immense pain. I get spasms and cramps radiating through my chest, to my back and up as high as my jaw. I can't burp because I don't have the muscles for it. So instead I literally vomit air. It's horribly painful and nothing helps except drinking water to keep the muscles moving and spasming less. I firmly believe these two issues are pathologically related. I've seen too many hints from others' accounts of their achalasia issues to believe otherwise. So where I'm left is that my achalasia symptoms have increased in the last week. I'm on day 14 of my whole30 right now. Considering I seldom have swallowing trouble, encountering it every other day all of the sudden is very disturbing. Not only that, but on the days I'm not having swallowing trouble, I'm having the digestive trouble. So every day it's something. It is disheartening and I feel like crap. I can't possibly eat my 3 square meals since I can't swallow them. When I was very ill, before my procedure, I lived on dairy. It was the only thing that I could consistently get down and because it was high in fat it made me feel better. I'm not doing that now, but when I'm not feeling good I'm certainly thinking back on that time. Dairy is my comfort food. I really thought clean eating would make the digestive part better. I don't know what I'm eating that's causing the distress so I don't know what to cut out to test it (or what to eat to test it). So that's my rant. I guess I just didn't want to clutter up my food log with it but wanted to get it out.
Hi there, The past few days I've been having a lot of gas in my stomach, which I experience in the form of frequent burping and also bloating. I do have acid reflux, for which burping is a symptom. But it's particularly bad right now. I think that having a meal and a snack that included hot sauce and then lying down yesterday kicked off some bad reflux. I am taking a digestive enzyme, which I've increased the dosage of to two with every meal, and I've had a kombucha each day. I broke down and had a non-compliant Gas-X on Day 21 because I was so uncomfortable. I also tried a TBS of apple cider vinegar yesterday. Here are my meals from the previous two days. The gas has been particularly bad in the evening and in the morning when I wake up. W3D21S1 Larabar, 1 tbs. cashew butter W3D21M1 4 turkey sausage patties, grilled mushrooms, roast potatoes, strawberries, raspberries, & Amaya Roasting Company Temporado coffee with coconut milk W3D21S2 Synergy Kombucha Gingerberry W3D21M2 boiled shrimp with mayonnaise, sweet potato with ghee, ginger, & cinnamon, 2/3 avocado, sauerkraut curtido W3D21M3 grass-fed hamburger with guacamole, salad w/EVOO & balsamic vinegar, spinach w/EVOO W3D22S1 Synergy Kombucha Gingerberry W3D22M1 tuna fish, Earthbound Farm rainbow chard w/EVOO, red delicious apple w/cashew butter, coffee w/coconut milk W3D22M2 3 chicken sausages (kale & balsamic), green beans w/EVOO, 2 cooked beets W3D22S2 smoked oysters, 1/2 avocado, hot sauce W3D22M3 chocolate chili, russet potato, strawberries Thanks for any feedback. Also... that was the last Larabar in the house and I haven't bought any more.
