After any advice/insight...
Since giving birth to my son in February 2017 I have been struggling with a variety of issues and I am sure that it is all coming from some form of gastrointestinal issue.
Am unsure if its celiac or IBS or SIBO...
My son (the one I gave birth to in Feb 17) has been having very similar issues. I am to the point where I have no idea what to feed us, what supplements we should/shouldn't be taking... So confused!
So symptoms are:
Me - constipation, food intolerances - gluten and dairy, bloating, headaches, fatigue, muscle/joint pain in particular ribs above breasts and back just under bra line, mucus in stool, restless legs, hot spots and numb spots on body that occur randomly lasting for seconds to minutes at a time, with a flare I will get blistered eye lids and dry sore eyes as well as itchy tops of hands and feet, will also get bad gas pain with a flare, recently tried a plant based diet which created a massive flare, probiotics make me nauseous, anxious, tired and headachey, get anxiety with a flare - seems that heart rate speeding up from flare triggers anxiety
My son (almost 3) - constipation, fatigue, general malaise and poor immunity, food intolerances - gluten and dairy, bad keratosis pilaris, sore tummy, mucus in stool, loss of appetite with a flare, reflux as a infant treated with poi's
Relevant history - strong antibiotics course for me (and his via breastmilk) when he was a couple of weeks old, celiac bloods negative for me but had already cut out almost all gluten at the time, stool test for me showed really low sIgA, low SCFA's, no lactobacillus or good e.coli strains in microbiome
I am also currently pregnant with number 2 and would really like to try sort my tummy before having him so I don't pass on my messed up microbiome to baby... Also have to bear in mind for any treatment that it needs to be safe for baby.
Not sure what to do next, what diet we should be on, what supplements to take, who to see to help (so far GPs and naturopaths haven't helped much)... Would love any help!
