Yeah, Fibro and IBS are just 2 of my 'fun' things, also. My IBS swings between C and D. I have many foods that I cannot eat because they cause too many problems and I just don't have the energy to deal w/ them anymore.
I have tried all of the 'pills' to control, even tried several of the pills at one time, didn't help. My children and I were working out in the yd many yrs ago, as a reward I took them to McDonald's for a milkshake. I took 3 of the super, duper size tablets to have a vanilla shake. I was sick for days, and I mean sick!
I haven't had a glass of milk in about 15 yrs, and I love a big, cold glass of milk. I have had soy milk, just not the same. Another thing I noticed, since I stopped the milk, my eczema has been in remission. That was brutal.
I can't eat popcorn, can't eat nuts, can't eat seeds. I'm not a chocolate person, so I really don't miss it. I can't eat beef, makes me sick. I used to love to have eggs sunny side up w/ bacon. I can't eat whole eggs, the yolk was the problem. I buy a container of egg whites. So far, I haven't had a problem w/ the whites. I can't eat onions or any spicy foods. I like cheese, but can't always eat ALL cheeses. I can eat ricotta cheese if it is cooked, like in lasagna. But I can only eat mine! I have had others and I get a reaction. Always fun when you're out and about. NOT
I know there are other foods I have a problem w/, but that is all that is coming to me right now. I basically had to give up what I liked or risk being sick for days.
Hope you have a great day.
God bless. Alice.
