I am a 19 year old girl who’s 5’4 and weighs 150 pounds. I suffer from Hashimoto’s disease and I haven’t started medicine for it yet (recently diagnosed). I started the AIP diet (autoimmune paleo) and I don’t eat any grains, gluten, dairy, seeds, nuts, sugar, potatoes, tomatoes, nightshades. I only eat meats, veggies, fruits, some compliant flour (cassava flour etc.) Since cutting out all of those foods 40+ days ago, my stomach issues have seemed to have gotten worse. Not every night but most nights about 30 minutes to an hour after eating I run back and forth to the bathroom 2-4 times with watery diarrhea. Usually before this happens I have a stomach ache for 1-4 hours or the stomach ache happens after the diarrhea is over and lasts for a few hours. I usually feel exhausted after all this has happened and the next day I just want to sleep. I don’t know what’s going on. The doctor wants to give me an ultrasound but that’s all. The doctor also gave me medicine for the stomach ache which hasn’t helped, I still have been having diarrhea way too often. Any thoughts? (Before starting this I thought dairy and gluten were giving me the issues but I haven’t had gluten or dairy in 40 days) all I know is whenever I have to go to the bathroom I have to run to the bathroom in thay minute because it’s that urgent. Thank you for any answers.
