Just under two weeks ago I decided to do a sort of ï¿½pre LEAPï¿½ test of my own by cutting out grain based carbos for a minimum of 72 hours and then reintroduce a few and see what happened. The info from MikeNL about ï¿½food sensitivitiesï¿½ able to kick in up to 3 days later gave a new twist to my previous rejection of ï¿½food allergiesï¿½ being causative. I had never noticed anything consistent except that changing foods a lot kept my IBS hopping and confused ï¿½ maybe. (There seems to be a lot of maybeï¿½s with this animal!)Anyhow, I noticed some time ago that in an ï¿½attack/pain periodï¿½ like I have been in for the past 6 weeks or so my flatulence increases. (I guess it is OK to use the word ï¿½fartï¿½??? as I think Uuggh titled a recent post: ï¿½Fart your way to Heavenï¿½ or something). So, that being what it is I would say that my fart factor went from around 40 a day to 5 or 6. As any extra pressure increases the pain and discomfort this is ï¿½airï¿½ I donï¿½t need! Well and good and maybe food for more consideration re ï¿½causative factorsï¿½. The problem is I now seem to have a kind of ï¿½acidic burningï¿½ feeling just below my ribcage and above my belly button and often it moves up some to about the level of the lower ribs ï¿½ inside of course. This can last for hours or on and off all day, after a meal; even a good salad or eggs and vegs for breakfast, etc. Now if you noticed my other post about ï¿½burning buttï¿½ the last thing I need is a fire at both endsï¿½I guess this is called ï¿½acid refluxï¿½ but is totally new to me. I have no idea why it just started and the only variable I have changed is the carbos. I wonder if there are some ï¿½lost enzymesï¿½ or something out there in my stomach that are upset with the lack of starches and are out to give me grief. Is this possible? I would like to keep testing my dietary direction but this is getting worrisome and uncomfortable. You maybe know what I mean ï¿½ another new thing shows up and it can start a chain reaction of anxiety. Honestly, I donï¿½t feel as hopeful about all this as it may seem, but having your guysï¿½ ear and support seems to rekindle my optimism. THANK YOU!!! PLEASE SEE MY RELATED POST ON AN ï¿½ACIDIC REAR ENDï¿½ Any help on the ï¿½Acid Twinsï¿½ posts would be much appreciated. Best! Drew.
