For many years, I have had Irritable Bowel syndrome. I will spare you the stinky details.

This does not really mean anything medically apart from the medical people knowing that something is not right with my tummy. They are not quite sure what. But I should take my meds and behave myself, even though these meds often cause side effects that make things worse.

Well, since finding out that health professionals have been so wrong about the pain I have had in my shoulder for years, and a number of other things, I have developed a determination infused with skepticism and curiosity that means I will keep seeking answers. My body must be telling me something. I am the one who had to live with this stuff, and it is rather annoying at times, and at times, pretty painful. There is something in my diet that causes these troubles, which may be linked with the inflammation from the CRPS

So I sought out a dietician, and after examining a food diary, she has put me on a low FODMAP diet. I am not going to explain what low FODMAPs are. Many others do that quite well.

I am NOT happy about cutting out mushrooms, milk, and some other marvellous foods, but I intend to focus on what I can eat rather than what I am not able to ingest. I hope and pray that it is the answer, and that it will improve my life quality.

I am going on a shop today. I am happy that I can still eat blueberries, dark chocolate, and rockmelon. Hopefully, this will be the answer.
