I am thinking about food allergies etc. and have been avoiding foods that I suspect (but can't really prove) are bothering me. I am staying away from apples and apple products and corn syrup, this has been about 2 1/2 weeks. I still eat cantaloupe, pears, bananas you name it and yet I feel like I am going to explode with constipation. Even tried an enema but just got brown water. Have gone a bit, maybe every third day so I know I'm not totally blocked...but I feel INSANE. this is not normal for me. Does anyone think this could possibly be due to the removal of some 'irritants' ie. food substances I am allergic to? PS Investingating Leap Program...plan to do it as soon as I get the insurance straightened out. Have had IBS for 27 years.
