unsure with a loooong process

ever since I got pregnant with my baby my body started to react to food in unusual ways at first we thought just to be morning sickness so I went along with this. After having her it has been on-going they thought now it was acid reflux/heartburn. they've done blood, urine and stool tests all are clear of celiac etc and what they consider to be normal.

However, I get a burning sensation in my stomach, then diarrhoea followed by constipation and again. along with these I get headaches in the back of my head and behind my eyes, brain fog and a feeling as if food is stuck in the throat and oesophagus. I also get very anxious, irritable and begin the pattern of negative thinking.

Western doctors didn't help so I got some natural healing and without telling her what was going on she pretty much told me i had inflammation in the digestive tract but then had ultrasound on abdomen (not including intestines) and everything seems to be normal..

Doctors now think it could be IBS and am having to keep a diary to keep a tract of whats going on. (WHICH I HAV TROUBLE DOING) CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME TIPS ON HOW I CAN DO THIS PLEASE... I really wanna get on top of this but find it hard because I have a 2 year old and a 9 month old plus all my house wife duties...

I am primarily on a dairy and gluten free diet (which eliminates most processed foods) and I don't really have much sugar either so mostly whole foods with a couple extras.

  • Keeping a diary of food and symptoms is a great idea. The easiest way to do that is to spend a couple of dollars on an ap for your phone. That way you can input data as you go about your day.

  • Thank you i will check that out its hard because I have a windows phone so a lot of apps are not compatible these days which is really disheartening
