Re: Hoping it's just IBS ...

Thanks Quincy! I found out yesterday that I have several food intolerances -- gluten, egg whites, dairy, peas, mushrooms and cashews, of all things. I rarely eat mushrooms or cashews, so those won't be a problem to eliminate. Peas I don't really care about. The gluten, eggs and dairy will be an issue, as I eat a LOT of pasta, eggs and cheese. But I am willing to change up my diet to see if it makes a difference. Luckily, I can still eat all meats and fish, potatoes and rice, corn and quinoa, all veggies (except peas) and fruits. Went shopping last night and found some corn/rice/quinoa based pasta - not sure what it's going to be like but hopefully it'll be edible. Also bought some veggies and corn starch (for gravies) and a package of quinoa.

Hopefully, I'll see some improvement by eating differently.

I am also already taking a high quality probiotic. It does help a bit but I still have flare-ups, although they're usually triggered by stress more than anything else.

What kind of blood test shows intolerances?
It's all a matter of perspective!
