Where EXACTLY are you having the pain after you eat?
It could possibly be reflux....that also can cause light coloured stools.
Your diet sounds good, however...how often do you eat?
How many bms daily are you having? and is there any urgency to go..or can you hold it a bit before having to go?
The pain is in my lower stomach mostly after I eat - doesn't feel like it did when I had pancreatitis, which felt really painful higher up, behind/below my sternum. This is quite a bit lower and goes away pretty soon after it starts. I have not had the pain all day today though. Last night I had a salad w/toast and some chicken, around 8 - then I got the really bad stomach cramp/pain/nausea around 12:00 and it lasted 10 minutes and then I felt asleep. I've felt great all day. So I'm wondering if I have a tummy bug or something.
I eat sporadically, but usually breakfast, lunch, dinner, sometimes snacks in between. I usually go first thing in the morning after my am coffee. It's not urgent, but not difficult, and doesn't look unusual (doesn't float, doesn't look oily, etc.)
The pain does not coincide w/the flax/fish oil - I've been using those sups for a very long time. The only difference is that I cut out all the wheat, dairy, eggs, and soy 3 weeks ago...and the difference in color started about 2 weeks ago I think...and the tummy ache started 3 days ago, except for once or twice on vacation - it was the same feeling I got when I got carsick.
