Rojo Posted February 16, 2013 Share Posted February 16, 2013 It is hard for me to ask, but I'll put this out there and see if someone can help me out. I don't know what I'm doing and it seems overwhelming - how to tackle an even more strict elimination regime. I thought of compiling all the foods from FODMAPS, Histamine foods, the IBS protocol from ISWF, highlighting the foods in common in each category, and cutting them out. Right now, I'm of a mind to just continue on with a Whole30 as planned and give it more time (I have 29 day so of a Whole30 under my belt and I am on day five of another Whole30 currently). The first Whole30 I took a probiotic and I wonder if I need to take a digestive enzyme? I don't have a gallbladder and I suffer from IBS and CFS. The only symptoms that are driving this concern is sometimes I get puffy eyes and nose after eating (Sometimes, not consistently) , and a watery tummy in the morning only...sometimes for a couple of hours - no cramping, bloating, pain, just a waterfall. I really do not know how to ask for help, or who I should even turn to on this one. I don't trust doctors anymore and the only natural doc in our area is SO expensive. I think she is the only one I would trust to help me sort this out. But gosh, she is expensive. I take 5,000 Vitamin D w/breakfast normally (I have been tested and I am low) I do take a Fish Oil supplement off and on I have switched to acetaminophen for headaches (Instead of Motrin) Do I need to be more patient and keep on with another Whole30 and see how things go? Should I add in a digestive enzyme? Should I do a more strict elimination at this point? Overall, my stomach has improved! I don't have pain and reflux anymore. The bloating and gas are gone (these were bothersome). I am just fearful that I am not absorbing nutrients. I know a watery tummy 50 percent of the time is not normal. It doesn't hurt...just bothersome and troubling to my mind. Should I just count my blessings and deal with it? I know I can be kind of a spaz sometimes. If I am being a spaz, just tell me kindly.
