I often have IBS-D issues, and sometimes a tiny amount of something will set it off. I get terrible, debilitating headaches after ingesting fructose and fructans that last all day and are immune to pain relievers. I feel foggy all the time, and I sleep way more than the average person.
I still have to work, function, and I want to enjoy my life. Do I go see a nutritionist? Can I afford one? Will my health insurance really cover it (they have a history of saying yes beforehand, then refusing afterward). Can I manage this all on my own?
A low FODMAPs diet helps the most toward functional health. I have been tossing back and forth the idea of going back to paleo with FODMAPs avoidance. Most vitamin supplements give me problems, as do gums, which seem to be in all gluten-free bread products I've tried. I want to live a long life, and a happy one, but it seems like I take one step forward and four back.
