Once I began building up my water intake all my stomach problems went away. My face was more clear, I was not so fatigued. It can be a pain to carry large water bottles and visiting the bathroom all the time but I swear water is the cure!
After doing everything mentioned as well (tests, stomach meds, switching what I ate) I would have to agree...WATER has made me much better! I couldn't believe that the answer was so simple...but it seriously has done wonders and I am so happy.
However I will also concur that I'm not perfect, nor am I at the same level of physical or mental health as I was before the ED... I definitely get more bloating, heartburn, and indigestion than I used to. And now that I have suffered bad ulcers once I am more prone to them again, so I try to be extra careful.
I hope you feel better soon!
