Thank you all for the replies. Nanners, your post really got me thinking, and I appreciate your feedback. I don't keep a food diary, as it seems there is no rhyme or reason when my bowels act up. I suffer more from constipation. I'll go a couple of days without going, then, BAMB! I can't get off the toilet. The fatigue gets debilitating. The aches, pains, chills, etc. Then, anxiety creeps in....
Also, when I have these episodes on the toilet, sometimes I feel as if I am going to pass out. I get very dizzy and my mouth waters something fierce.
I am going to start a food diary TODAY to see if I can pinpoint food triggers. Also, with the constipation, maybe I should try Miralax again. I need to improve my work attendance. Money is getting very tight.
Blessings to you all, Julie
