Ah!!! This is so frustrating!
I’ve been having some issues with my digestion system. I wont go into too much detail but I will say that it includes bloating, excess air and other things. I had some blood tests recently to try and figure things out and the results were…nothing! Apart from a bit too much iron (strange when I don’t really eat meat!) and a little low on Vitamin D I have no allergys, obvious intolerances, I’ve not got any kind of anything. Really frustrating! Don’t get me wrong, it is really good that I don’t have anything serious enough to show up in my blood but it is very frustrating as I know that there is something wrong with me but I just can’t figure out what it is.
I’m suspecting it may be wheat. It could also be diary, and well everything, but I think it’s wheat thats causing most problems. So here I go, eliminating Wheat entirly from my diet for a few weeks. I have tried this before, but I don’t think I did it properly, so I’m trying it again.
Of course, there is a whole other dimension to this that I haven’t really told my doctor. It could be because I used to eat very little and now I eat much more. I did try to suggest this, without actually saying it outright, but I don’t think I managed it very well. Of course it doesn’t help that I’m not underweight, overweight or have any physical sign of any problems. I tried to ask to see a nutritionist to help figure out how to go about this whole no wheat thing, but my doctor said there are very strict rules about referring patients to nutritionists and I don’t qualify (ie I’m not underweight/overweight)
Sometimes I think all this is in my head, but I’m just so frustrated and just really want to be normal. I know something is wrong with my body but I can’t work out how to fix it.
