I know stress does it. Always will do it. Dad even says I'm not built for management physically, because any heavy stress environment and my body goes nuts.
Then it hit me... I never had a single issue at home before college. I always thought it was an age thing, cause when I ate at my parents over an extended time, sometimes my IBS would get worse.
So what did I change in my diet? Well, I took eggs out... at least sunny-side up and over easy. Minutes after eating them gets my stomach upset and outta whack. Not IBS, just lost the ability to digest them or something... I stopped drinking milk, cause everytime I ate cereal in the morning, I'd get sick shortly after... but I used to drink a glass of milk with every dinner when I was living with my parents... Then I thought more about it... when I used to eat cereal in college, I'd be so hungry, I'd eat 6-8 bowls. THAT is probably why I was getting sick, not the milk. So two weekends ago, I figured, what the hell, and drank a glass of milk a day (usually with dinner).
The results have been AMAZING. No pain in the morning. No problems with the gut. The only time I start feeling ill is days I forget to drink my milk.
Of course, this is hard to explain. Either I'm psychosomatic, or I had a calicum deficiency? I dunno, but other than stress, I'm doing GREAT gut-wise. Who woulda thunk....?
Now I wonder if beer will screw up my system, or was it just the lack of milk (I haven't had beer since college, cause it always made me sick)?
