By the way I never had digestive problems until recently and I presume they came due to aging. Not knowing how old you are, could this be the case and just a coincidence that you are feeling as you do now? Our bodies change as we get older and what we could eat and digest a few years ago may not be as digestable to our bodies now. What do you think?
Thanks for your reply! When you went to the chiropractor, did you go specifically for digestive problems, or other problems? I have definitely eliminated the foods that were causing me problems before. I eat low fat, small frequent meals, etc. But I still get occasional nausea, I get full very quickly and heartburn. So the diet has probably helped some, but I wouldn't consider myself "cured" by any stretch of the imagination. Plus, the doctors can't seem to figure out what is wrong. I was found to have microgallstones in my gall bladder, but the GI doc I had said he didn't think my symptoms were related to that.
Anyway, I'm 32 years old, so while it's possible that this is just a result of aging, I really don't think so. Especially because nobody in my family has had similar problems when they were my age, or even now.
I went to the chiropractor on Friday, and she said the my spine was really stiff and "messed up". I should be surprised about that b/c I've always had a bad back to some extent. She pressed on a certain place at the bottom of my rib cage and asked if I felt pain-- which I did. She said that point was related to digestion. So I dunno. I'll keep going and see what happens. If nothing happens, at least things wouldn't be any different than they are now. Oy vey!!
