For a long time now I have been experiencing symptoms that I now believe may be related to a food allergy or intolerance although I never really put the symptoms together.
I have always stomach aches and churning noises from the stomach and although I wouldn't define them as severe I would say they're certainly there or maybe I've just got used to them. I've noticed that they're particularly bad after eating junk food such as pizza and i feel truely awful after having Mcdonalds. Although I wouldn't say that stomach discomfort is my main symptom. This is kinda awkward but I seem to have quite sloppy poo and it takes an awful lot of wiping if you know what I mean.. my bum is also sensitive when I go to the toilet and sometimes bleeds and it's not piles..
What I really struggle with is huge bags under my eyes sometimes people ask me if I have a black eye and they're really dark and shine because they're that black. They do get better some days but they're never completely better and I always have dark circles in some way or another.
Brain fog is a big issue for me and I feel like I'm always in a fog and have difficulty concentrating or abstract thinking. I have a rubbish memory and I also get fatigue a lot and sometimes feel like it takes a huge effort to exercise and do strenuous activities. I have suffered with anxiety and depression in the past and although I feel considerably better it does still effect me.
I'm wondering if you think these symptoms are likely to be caused by a food allergy and if so what the likely culprits would be and also what the best course of action would be. I'm thinking of trying an elimination diet but what should I try to eliminate?
Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
