Hi all, After going on a strict elimination diet for about 6-8 months I now seem to be able to tolerate a lot more foods. I am not reacting so badly to foods and supplements. From what I can gather I don't think I have "true intolerances", so when I was doing the elimination diet and reacting to foods tested, I don't think it was a "true reaction" more the fact that my body just couldn't handle many foods at that time and certain foods were the wost for me at the time. I also had strong sensitivities to food smells, or any smells for that matter, which has gone! I also was getting ravenously hungry after each meal (which thankfully has gone away). I seemed at the time to react to glutamates, gluten, amines, high histamine and FODMAPs. I still notice I react to histamine foods in the sense that I tend to sneeze more after consuming histamine foods and perhaps more tired. However, can now tolerate more supplements and foods without feeling unwell. I seem to handle 1 x wholemeal bread a day now and a cup of pasta once a week without any pains in the stomach (I was getting cramping before that). I can handle more FODMAP foods without getting bloating, wind and cramping too. The thing that I am struggling with is energy, motivation and I sort of get a depressed feeling overcoming me. But I am not bedridden, just motivation is very, very low. It's sort of a "what's the point?" feeling. Could be a bit of depression too. I also suffer from anxiety quite a bit and have a nervous disposition. I also can't seem to get much sleep. If I ever do, I tend to fall asleep at 4 am and wake up a few hours later. The sleeping issue arose when I first got sick about 5-6 years ago. I tried ADD meds (dex), as I always seemed to have attention issues even before I got sick, but doesn't seem to really do much for me. It might slightly help for a day or two and then I crash. If you can avoid criticising ADD meds, as this is something I was just trialling and I do understand it can be an issue and can make things worse long term (but this is something I thought was worth trialling and ticking off my list. I don't think it is the answer for me). Any suggestions on what supplements I should take? When I was at my worse many years ago, probiotics seemed to cause a severe reaction and caused me to get much worse. I do go to the toilet every day but stool is way too soft But a few years ago a barely went to the toilet and was constipated, so since adding more vegetables and legumes I have gone the other way. What would you suggest for someone who reacts to histamines still, gets anxious and unmotivated and can't sleep too well? I'm thinking magnesium as a start? When I was at my worse I couldn't really stomach it. I have magnesium chelate in the cupboard. I was getting aches and pains too (joint ear pain, leg pain and back pain), but they are not too bad at the moment. But getting headaches coming back due to stress as I have taken on a job 2 days a week (I have to survive).
