I have been told by doc I have ibs so I've been trying as much as possible to stay on low fodmap diet other than for past two weeks as i e been on hol so thought I'd be easy in myself !
Been back for 5 days & trying to get back into the diet. I did have some improvement and also on hol but just so confused & down in general as I've got back home & my tummy pains are as bad as ever 😬
I had a kinesiology test in my mid 20's that came up with candida so I was told to take acidophilus, garlic & zinc tablets along with following a anti candida diet .. I followed it but obviously went went back to 'normal ' eating soon afterwards I can't remember if it helped if I'm honest 😳
I was on lots of courses of antibiotics as a teenager for tonsillitis & cystitis & also started taking the pill at 17 so I put my candida down to that as that what the kinesiologist told me & I guess it made sense !
Now we have a "ibs' a seemingly new digestive problem that gps seem to diagnose with ease !
I suffer mainly with pain in my tummy lots of bloating & wind and occasional constipation & diahorrhea .,,
I've been for a lactose test about 3 weeks ago I asked for it as I'd read symptoms were very similar to ibs ..I am trying to rule out all other digestive issues 😩 But have had no response from the hospital or my gp even though my readings were according to the nurse the highest she had seen !
I've seen as gastrointestinal specialist & he just said I've classic ibs & need to learn to live with it !!! 😡 & if I had any more concerns to go back to docs I asked about colonoscopy & he said he didn't think I needed it 😳
Gosh I feel like a right winge bag ...
Should I see a nutritionist n have tests done !?
Thanks any advice appreciated and
