I have been having similar issues lately that I cannot figure out. Mine also started with occasional diarrhea and has progressed to pain higher up in the abdomen - a strange pattern, right? For me, the pain occurs about
an hour after eating, and the type of food does not seem to matter. It's right below my stomach and can be severe. Everything else is normal in terms of digestion - regularity, no blood, no fever, etc.
Does the pain have a relationship to eating for you? Have you had any testing done recently - parasites, blood counts, autoimmune markers? Some digestive enzyme formulas contain mold-derived enzymes, so they can cause problems for folks with mold sensitivity, allergies, or MCAS. If you notice that they make you worse, then I would vote for skipping them until your intestinal lining has healed!
To heal lining: slippery elm, bone broth, L-glutamine, aloe vera, marshmallow, mastic, licorice (DGL)
To stabilize mast cells: quercetin, curcumin, cromolyn sodium, khella, Ketotifen
To aid digestion: probiotics (low-histamine ones if you have MCAS), digestive bitters
Possible diets to help: FODMAP, GAPS, low-histamine
Possible diagnoses to consider: parasites, IBD, IBS, SIBO, MCAS, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, MALS, endometriosis, H. pylori, candida
Good luck, and please let me know what you figure out!
Lyme, bartonella, babesia, mycoplasma, EBV
Mold, MCAS, POTS, CFS/ME, HPA axis
