Hi all, i'm Rob, been a reader here for awhile and wanted to get some feedback. I have symptoms of ibs-c, never officially diagnosed but have had constipation, gas, cramps, bloating and movement discomfort all my life.
In an effort to ease the symptoms I have tried a paleo and fodmap style diet off and on for two years or so. The trouble is, it seems everytime I follow this my constipation and cramps get worse, especially if I am trying to follow the autoimmune protocol.
Currently I'm eating white rice/rice cakes, white potatoes, oats, raw nuts/butters, bagged tuna, frozen chicken, frozen spinach, blueberries and bannanas. I also throw a quarter cup of sauerkraut in my smoothies.
Far as I know none of these are high fodmap but I have had trouble going for almost a week without laxatives, its been like this for almost two weeks. Im really stumped and not sure what to do.
Strangely enough, when i eat crappier stuff(corn/wheat/beer/pizza,etc) I am able to go easier and more regularly.
Anyone have any similar experiences?
