Potted History

In 2005 I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and commenced treatment. Before this I had a chequered history of allergies to various drugs, pollen, grass, dust etc. I began having migraine headaches aged nine triggered by allergies. I suffered terrible tonsillitis, hay fever, eczema and sinusitis. I often had tummy aches as a child but appeared to grow out of them as a teenager.

Between 2009 - 2014 I made numerous visits to my GP complaining of D. On many of these occasions after stool and blood tests that I had IBS. I do have the odd bout of IBS but he didn't understand that this was something different.

Eventually I made the link with bouts of D with eating gluten products. I visited the GP again and mentioned I suspected I was sensitive to gluten. He only way he could test my theory was for me to over-load on gluten ahead of a blood test. I just felt the gluten made me too ill and I protested that it did. I wouldn't have been well enough to get to the clinic to have my bloods done. We reached a stale mate and it was never proven that I am gluten sensitive. The GP wouldn't make a diagnosis on clinical evidence only.

I began trying gluten free breads, bread mixes and still reacted. This caused confusion until I saw the insides if a bread making factory and realised there was plenty of opportunities for error because these factories very often made batches of gluten free products between gluten products. I gave up on the gluten free products and embarked on a diet of strictly home cooked gluten free foods - mainly freshly made down to the sauces.

Eating out was always a problem even where restaurants offered gluten free items. Somewhere in the menu were items supposed to be gluten free that I reacted to immediately.

In late 2014 I asked for a referral to a colorectal specialist so we could rule out cancer of the colon. I had some bowel changes in frequency and size but no blood. The surgeon doing the colonoscopy found no abnormalities, no polyps or any sign of irritation. The diagnosis of mild diverticulosis was given. I wasn't given dietary advice or medication or a follow-up visit.

This year started with exam stress for two important exams in January 2015. I had three further exams lined up before the end of June. I put myself under a huge amount of stress and have subsequently had to postpone the rest of my course till I get better, at least over the brain fog and bad headache stage and extreme tiredness.

My partner, desperate about my ongoing explosive WD, nights spent in the loo etc and my general condition she started doing some research and found this forum. Not sure if she registered but she read as much as she could then bought the books recommended and started reading the one written by Tex. On the day after my very worst flare up of MC ten days ago I was due to take bowel prep for a CT Scan to exclude a stricture. The GI specialist suggested this on hearing my history of explosive WD inspite of ten months earlier my colonoscopy result being NAD. On the same day as he CT Scan my precious doggie needed an operation on her ear so I opted to have her ear done instead.

I started an elimination diet around the same time and stopped my NSAID Ketoprofen. Five or six days later I took one Ketoprofen for my arthritis and within hours the MC flared up. I never suspected the Ketoprofen could have been a problem.

Today I am on Day 4 of Elimination Diet. Things have settled with my tummy on my initial ten items of sea salt, pepper turkey breast, sweet potato, boiled carrots, ghee, almond milk, Rice Chex, tea, coffee, sugar.
