Every morning I've always had lots of energy but after eating lunch, which always involved bread, I was always exhausted and felt ill and unable to do anything other than sit with my heart thumping away. After reading about people on this site going onto the Fodmap diet I decided I would give it a go. I went out and bought all lactose and wheat free products after about a week or so I realised that I wasn't aware of my heart thumping anymore and felt a lot betterl. However, I had an awful soreness in my bowels and after another few weeks when the soreness continued, decided I would just stay off lactose and not wheat. I became aware of my heart thumping again and still every afternoon I had no energy. Today I ran out of bread and decided I would have curried rice with sultanas and an egg salad. O.k so it's early days being just one day, but this afternoon I've felt like I haven't for years - full of life and energy. It's so unusual!
Now I'm wondering if its, the additives or yeast in bread that makes me feel so tired, lifeless and heart thump.
Please don't shoot me down anyone - I'm so hopeful!
