I think that I finally understand what happens when I eat too much protein. The other night I had a big slice of meatloaf. The next day, I had intestinal cramping, I get dizzy, and my calves swell, heart palpitations and i just feel crummy.

I was wondering if anyone has this happen to them, and also will it always be this way? First I thought was nightshades, then I thought it was salicylates....I am making myself crazy. :blink:

I had testing from enterolab for eggs, soy and yeast. The eggs and soy came back very high, but the yeast was fine. Is this just a coincidence?

I completely understand your frustration! My intolerance list seems to just keep on growing. I currently eat a fat-free, sugar-free, vegan diet. I found that I can't digest any proteins either (besides beans, which aren't too high in protein really). Fatty acids are also a major issue for me, as well as anything with sugar (besides some fruits). I get terrible cramping too, and constipation (so the cramping doesn't go away). And my stomach is ALWAYS bloated. I sympathize with you!

Did you make the meatloaf? Silly question, I know. But I'm pretty sure my mom makes meatloaf with eggs and bread crumbs. It could be that there was something in the meatloaf that cause a reaction.

Inability to digest protein is a symptom of h. pylori, it would be a good thing to get checked out.

Two weeks ago, I had an endoscopy done to see how things were healing. The GI says all looks good, though my stomach is still a little inflamed. The biopsy came back fine. At the end of this month, I have an appointment to see a ND. What I eat one day, might make me sick the next day. I just can't figure it out. This weekend my son was home from college. It was a full weekend of food and goodies. I am sure that I will paying for it the rest of the week. Once in a while a girl's gotta live :D
ps. My son has celiacs too...all goodies were gluten-free

Can you eat dairy still? Cottage cheese has protein and I have no trouble with it, also peanut butter is protein. We all do need some protein and I get mine with these, along with chichen breast and some fish. I too can't eat red meats, turkey, or even the darker meat of chicken. I can't eat the beans either, like pinto, kidney, and such--I think it's the skins though maybe! My mom always made meatloaf with oatmeal in it and it always upset my tummy when I was young, so I developed a dislike for it--I don't even miss it! ;)

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
