Hi, I have been having such a hard time. I have had severe stomach issues for so long-so many years-since my late 20's. I am 50. I was trying this diet and also avoiding MSG and other things. But I can't eat many things on it and am losing weight again. And so hungry, depressed and broke.
I have had severe diaherra for years. I am at my wit's end. I might make another doctor's appointment but they have never been much help to be honest. Avoid nuts, seeds and berries. Does not help either.
I am worried about my recent bone density test. More bone loss. I have osteopenia. I will make another doctor's appointment but so worried about money. And they have never helped.
Exercise makes my diaherra worse. I can't eat dairy products or yogurt. I get dehydrated a couple days a week bad. I stay home a lot. I am depressed.
Could a medication make things worse? The only thing I can think of I have been on all these years is klonopin for anxiety. I was on 1.75 mg for a while but tapered down slowly to 1 mg year before last. That was painful. You have do to such a slow taper. I thought I would die even on a slow taper. I bet it would take me a very painful year or more to taper the rest! I don't have it in me right now.
Sorry to ask so many questions. Having such a hard time. Not eating enough b/c everything seems to make me sick. I avoid so much. But you can only cut out so much. Not much left! So this is not working. I am open to any and all ideas. Thank you for the great board and everything!
Thank you! I try to stay positive but it is hard. Sorry to complain so much.
