Are you sure? I was convinced I was, instead I ended up fighting for my life.
I guess it started around eight years ago (2006) when my then girlfriend and now wife noted that after consuming dairy products I became bloated, experienced abdominal pain, gas, wind and diarrhoea.
It worsened in 2010 when it seemed bread was also a problem.
As the symptoms worsened I went to my doctors and they suggested keeping a food diary to monitor the problem and to identify problem foods. In late 2011 convinced I was coeliac I went for a test… but the results disagreed and the conclusion was that I was suffering from IBS with an intolerance to Lactose and Gluten. However after a while I noticed something quite alarming: Occasionally I could eat without problems!
“I wish I’d pushed all of my doctors more because less than a month later I was in intensive care fighting for my life.”
