This morning I have been preparing some analysis for a session with my nutritionist to see if I can feel even more healthy than I feel now, which made me think back to my initial time of feeling unwell and frustration at not getting any medical help. Until I initially self diagnosed my symptoms of food intolerance.
Having food intolerance’s can be difficult to recognise and diagnose and like me people affected can suffer for long periods with misdiagnoses and little support. According to the charity Food Intolerance Awareness, common symptoms that food intolerance can contribute to include:
- Abdominal pains
- Aches and pains
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Fluid retention
- Loss of Appetite
- Respiratory Symptoms
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Stomach cramps
- Weight loss
So as you can see its a bit of a mixed bag and you can see how hard it is to put all of these symptoms down to a food intolerance.
So if like me you were looking for help for what felt like a life time then the YORKTEST; Food intolerance test and gut test are worth checking out as since then I have not looked back. At last something that helped me physically confirm what my issues were and what to do to sort them out, it has really helped me get on the right track.
