Not sure if the two things are related but both are making life miserable at the mo Seem to be getting more and more headaches, at least one a week. They tend to get worse as the day goes on, I can feel sick with them and the pain is horrible. Paracetamol doesn't touch it.The IBS is bad at the mo, chronic diarrhoea, stomach cramps, pretty much everything I eat seems to set it off. <feeling very sorry for myself>
i found for my diarrhoea type IBS; i should not eat seed, nuts, wholegrain bread, oats etc. i saw it on a website on the net, i cant find it now. ibs can cause lots of discomfort even depression.hope you will find a way to get out of it.
Hi have you thought you might have a food intolerance? Sounds like a reaction to wheat and/or dairy. I had monster fuggy headaches and bad guts, itchy skin. Turned out had a wheat intolerance. Cut it out & got better ever sinceIt's worth going to see a nutritionist to get tested/ a history taken & a diagnosis. You don't need to put up with IBS! Just because its got a name doesn't mean you just have to "desk with it". What you injest directly affects your guts, brain, skin etc.
Thanks I have cut out milk but have been wondering about wheat as well, but then I struggle to think about what I can eat!!
Ah don't worry about cutting out wheat Here's your starter for 10-You can get wheat free bread, pitta, crumpets, rolls, pasta etc. just look in the supermarket for the "free from section" (generally bright yellow for some reason)Check the back of the packet- I think tesco labels the allergy foods in pink, so it's pretty quick & easy to spot wheat. Do be careful with sausages though, 99% have rusk (ie wheat) in them. The brand Black Farmer are wheat free though. Museli again check the packet. Cakes & biscuits come in wheat free versions, or just cut them out as its healthier Most ready meals have wheat in sauces, but dolmio & Lloyd grossman jars are ok. Careful with gravy- bisto best is the only one I've found to be wheat free. Hope some of that info is useful for you!Let me know if you need any more help, don't want to bore you You might feel daunted right now, but honestly it's totally doable, and once the headaches go it's really worth it
