i dont know what else to try. i dont know where to begin to explain cuz every time i do on here all that i get is well that should not happen. that should not bother you. i dont know what tests to take. i dont know what is bothering me when it is bothering. i have been through every possible food and food combination at the organic market. nothing consistently works. i dont know what to try next. i dont know if i will make it worse. it seems if there is anything in my belly something is not right. i ve tried rotation. ive tried caveman. ive tried quinoa. anything with vitmains...or with food! in it i can't eat. anything. no meats work. veggies dont work. i cook everyting. i eat small portions. i drink bottled water. i'm very careful. if anyone is careful of i am. i'm at 8 months and i can't imagine what i will be eating for the rest of my life. i know what to avoid. everything. i can't imagine that i will just heal one day not like this--no i can't think that magic, that one day it will turn and i can eat everything. i dont know but i dont think the body will heal in the state that i keep putting it in but i am using all safe foods!!!! very limited. i'm using every trick that is supposed to help, but it builds. sometimes; it does so many diferent things i dont know which one to explain this time. i limit myself since nothing works then "my" foods get all stuffed inside, they like...corrode me or something. they work against me and now i have run out. i was going strong but i don't know it did not feel like it would last; something kept adding up and slowly getting worse; then i had a little something i probably should not but it was safe safe safe safe, just not for me--now all hell is broke loose again. i wish i could just have it explained and someone could say that sounds like this...i'm tired of coming here end re-explaining my situation, i'm tired of the same questions i guess i dont know how to answer correctly cuz only a few respond then they stop responding and i get no more help. what am i doing wrong here cuz i dont know

scotty,

Do you have a doctor that you have a good relationship with? Have you every done food testing with an allergist or maybe through Enterolabs.

I hate to see you struggling without answers.

Scotty,

I had the same problems and the same frusterations....nothing I did worked and I tried every diet imagineable.

You may want to consider looking into other causes for your ongoing symptoms. It could be that you are not healing because you have undiagnosed issues which are causing you to remain unwell. The ongoing problems with food intolerance may be a symptom of an underlying issue that you are not yet aware of.

No. i just got insurance. i had a GI doc prescribe Miralax after my endoscopy came back negative (or so they told me); maybe i explained my situation wrong. somehow he got the impression i was stuggling to go and needed assistnace. it seems that might be my problem...i never seem to explain it right to get the answers i need--to anyone; like i said i dont know which problem to choose this time around.

that would make sense. i'm just not sure how to pinpoint it. i'm not sure which problem to describe that would make it stand out--whatever this issue could be. on top of that i am not sure how to describe things most of the time. i always get answers that dont help. i think i leave things out or say too much of something i dont need to. i dont know...the brain fog really makes it difficult

alright here goes nothing...i guess one of my more recent concerns is these red hatches. usually they appear right below my chest. almost itchy or irritated, not unbearable. i get the red belly on bad days; the same hatchy redness like a face just raised off a pillow in the afternoon. that concerns me. it comes here and there and does not seem conssitent with anything i eat; like it does not happen right away or everytime. sometimes it is more than others, more spread.

other symptom: i nearly wet myself the instant i feel urination. i avoid many many foods cuz of this; they "spike" my bladder. i had gained incredible remission for a good month there. maybe more maybe less. it is not as bad since i have accepted it and just relieve myself about every 90 minutes. but is usually how i can tell when something does not agree. at least i used to measure it this way. i would notice that suddenly i am going more. suddenly i cannot control it, suddenly it is pinching me to go. i almost have to wait til the pinching contractions subside before i can actually go to the bathroom. not that it wont come out, but that i dont want to have an accident cuz if i just move in anyway i may lose it.

phew ok what else...these are my main concerns right off the top of my head anyway...some foods floor me, seems anythign with vitamins--like if the label has a list of them and percents and all...i mean it wastes me to the point i am nearly collpasing; same with beans nuts lentils even some veggies. lets see i have alternating tan and green poo; depends on what i have been eating. lets say i go caveman; i start to get burny, seapy and runny inside, green poo; lets say i start in with the carbs--i get full at first feel good, then i get the tan poo, fluffy or frothy, nice pieces, but if anything gets me then i get hard bowels, burrowing feelings, eww i get seriously built up BMs...i'm just going to keep going here--i can go so many directions. i can't say these are it and exactly what happens everytime. it seems if i have a nice D in the morning then usually have a decent day. these are recovery days. then it gets complicated. i miss a morning; it comes late moring; then not til next and just a little bit. usually i can't get consistent. when i get backed up i'll say--i am not thiking constipated whatsoever here--but when i start to build up or get more solid, when i stop having D in the morning i get uncomfortable feelings, like starvations. i eat and feel it right through, pee it out instantly and just feel vacant. i always get tempted to eat some nuts or beans something that will flush it out, but that means weeding out the sluggish stuff again. yet sometimes...i having this problem cuz i got something bad in there somehow; i been noticing it with meats recently, veggies 3-4 months ago, rice puffs 1 month ago (had to be, was marked "made in wheat infested facilities"); but i get something bad and keep peeing it out until a tremendous D and more bad days in a row; this all seems to not allow my stools to develop a good consistency.
