Need some help with some symptoms

Hello ,
I thought that the Nutritional Disorder board would be the best place to start , so here goes

Since the age of 13 I have bee plaqued with symptoms of spaceyness, ( out of body feeling), weight gain, poor concentration, bloating. and IBS. Over the years I have seen numerous doctors about it and was told well I'm not sure it may be stress. I have done blood work, and seen a neurologist, but no answers to be found. The interesting thing is that not only do I suffer from this , but also my mother, sisters, and my son now complains of the same symptoms. It is becoming very difficult to perform my work duties without missing something or making foolish mistakes that could have been avoided if only I could focus.

Why try the Nutritional Disorder You may ask?

Well about 15 year ago we had a very hot summer and I recall being so warm that I didn't feel like eating at all. So I lived on just cold watermelon for one month . One morning I woke up feeling , focuses and completely clear minded. I felt just as I did before the spacey feeling took over. To this day I still question if I could possibly have a food sensitivity disorder. Can anyone help? Does anyone else have this problem??

Re: Need some help with some symptoms

Yes, you can be sensitive to certain foods. An elimination diet might help you narrow down which foods are causing your symptoms. This is where you go on a severely restricted diet for a week or two, eliminating the foods that people are most commonly allergic to, and then re-introduce them into your diet one at a time to see if your symptoms return.
