So i have always had stomach issues since i was a kid. When i was 14 i had ulcers. A few years ago i found out i had H-Pylori. And I still have issues with my stomach to this day. Every time i went to the Dr they would tell me i was just bloated and/or constipated and it was nothing to worry about. Well I realllllly hate going to the Dr., so i only go once a year (usually for my free physical and a pap) The last time i went, they said my blood sugar level was really low but I tested negative for diabetes. I have joint pains, possibly arthritis, but would have to come back for xrays. They also said, (AGAIN), that i was just bloated and/or constipated and to take some Beano and Collace. Well that stuff never helped and i didn't want to go back so i just dealt with it. But last year my stomach started swelling up really bad. It looks like I am 5 months pregnant after i eat. I even changed my diet and started eating healthier, but nothing seemed to work. So looking at the different symptoms, we think I might have a gluten issue going on. So i am going gluten free for a few weeks to see if i get the same results.
Hope everyone has a great week!
