This problem started a few months ago and has spiraled completely out of control. I began eating in a "Peat-like" fashion about half a year ago - milk, juice, raw carrot, cooked mushrooms cheese, liver, gelatin, etc. and I felt great at the beginning, no digestive symptoms at all. Slowly as the months progressed, I started noticing 'endotoxin'-like symptoms: gas, painful bloating, diarrhea, skin flushing, etc. so I removed all starch from my diet, thinking that would fix the problem - it didn't. Some of my family members began recommending I cut back on the milk, because "1.5L of milk a day is too much", but I didn't listen to them because milk is the perfect "Peat" food, and obviously you can cure lactose intolerance by forcing it, and I had been doing fine on milk for months. My digestive symptoms got really bad at this point, I was having fecal incontinence (I wasn't able to hold my poop in), interstitial cystitis (swollen inflamed bladder) and a bunch of other horrid symptoms. One day I decided to cut the milk out - and boom, all my digestive symptoms gone. I tried many different types of milk after that, including goats milk, sheeps milk, lactose free milk, raw milk, grass fed milk, and it always gave me the same symptoms. I started to become intolerant to all dairy, including cheese, ice-cream and yogurt. One time I tried eating a teaspoon of yogurt and it gave me an extreme reaction including suicidal thoughts. Anyway you can probably see where this is going, I started becoming extremely sensitive to everyday foods and having to cut them out - symptoms would include anxiety, flushing, intrusive/suicidal thoughts, insomnia, diarrhea AND constipation, gas, etc. For the past month or so, my diet has been limited to ground beef, orange juice, and eggshells. A few nights ago I put a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of juice in the afternoon, and then subsequently didn't sleep the entire night. Every one of these foods produce the same type of bowel movement, a pure liquid stool which is incredibly hard to pass, and painful to pass (however that works). I don't take any supplements/drugs except for 1mg of cyproheptadine every night, mostly because I've become sensitive to them too. The cyproheptadine is a must for me, because I appear to suffer from 'chronic serotonin syndrome' and cyproheptadine is the only thing that allows me to sleep (although it doesn't do anything if I eat something I'm sensitive to). What could be causing my extreme sensitivity?
