Hi! I'm new around here and just wanted to introduce myself. Here's my story:
I was diagnosed with IBS four years ago. I had the blood tests done for celiac two years ago, and they were negative. I then figured that gluten must not be the issue, so I kept eating it. My symptoms kept getting worse and worse. I finally reached the end of my rope when I ended up in urgent care about two months ago with excrutiating abdominal pain. After that I started an elimination diet with the help of a nutritionist/herbalist. After cutting out gluten, dairy, sugar and bananas, I feel miraculously better! I've been eating dairy and sugar sparingly and still feel fine. So, looks like I am gluten intolerant/sensitive.
It is incredible to feel almost normal after feeling horrible every day for so long! I guess that's all; just wanted to say hi.
