Hi, I have lupus, hypothyroid, ic, adrenal insufficiency and now starting with abdominal bloating and cramps when I eat alongside chronic constipation only alleviated by many laxatives. Sounds grim, and it is. Managed to get treatment for most of my issues apart from my bowel issues and there seems to be a real lack of interest if you are not losing blood or habits have suddenly changed.
Never had bleeding and nothing has changed suddenly, just gradually. I think that I struggle with high fibre foods as if I eat healthily the pain is awful. Been tested for coeliac disease due to my inability to store iron and it was negative so I need to move this forward without the NHS to start with.
Does anyone know of a good home testing kit or clinic in the Yorkshire area that runs food allergy/intolerance testing???
I would be really grateful of any help as I am eating quite a restricted diet and am forever anticipating pain.....
