Is it possible that digestion or gut issues cause pem? (I tried to read chris Armstrong's posts but I dont understand a word due to brain fog & lack of science) Can someone explain in very simple terms how my severe stomach issues can cause pem & what to do to fix it? I have eosinophilic esophagitis, gastroparesis; and some candida issues. I have a very hard time eating/digesting even little bits of food, and eating makes pem worse. My pem hits my head, my stomach & leaves me breathless and nauseous like I was punched in the stomach. I took both medications & probiotics to help my stomach issues but they did not work; and had no benefit on pem. I also tried diflucan plus candida diet 2 yes ago and it made me a lot sicker& pen much worse.
