Some serious text ahead…Even though that churning, dull ache in my stomach has waxed and waned I ended up at the doctor yesterday. My torso was covered in hives!!! WTF mates? I saw a different doctor who immediately put in a request for tests to be done on my bloodwork and stool samples. I got my blood drawn right then and there and was sent home with a bag full of goodies to do a home “collection” of sorts. His initial suspicions are something inflammatory and he mentioned Celiac and Crohn’s disease. However, it is possible that I could have a parasite so he’s checking for that as well. In the meantime, I am ordered to avoid any wheat and dairy products and keep a food journal for the next 7 days. He will call me if my bloodwork is very abnormal earlier than my appointment but I am scheduled for a follow up next Monday. I’ll confess that now I am a little bit nervous. *Cross your fingers*
1. Any suggestions for good food that is easily digestable?
2. Do you have an allergy to wheat or Crohn’s? How do you manage it?
