I am 27 and was diagnosed with RRMS last year although I have had symptoms for about 5 years. I was really hoping to get some advice as I have also been struggling with what seems like IBS and wondered if anyone else had experienced similar symptoms?
This has happened quite a few times before but I keep feeling terrible whenever my body is digesting food. When I first wake up, I usually feel ok but within about 1 hour of eating breakfast (cereal or toast usually) I will start to get a headache. Then at the 2 hour mark, I will start to feel really cold and sick. Then I will usually feel rotten for the next few hours until I have a BM and then I will slowly start to feel better.
I cant seem to pinpoint a specific food that is causing this as it tends to come and go even if I keep eating the same foods.
Some other things to add to the mix but I started Rebif in January that did seem to irritate my stomach so they kept me on 22mcg for a few months (despite my MS nurse insisting that Rebif doesnt affect the stomach) and I have just titrated up to the 44mcg so I know that this wont be helping things - but I have had the above symptoms for a few years now on and off throughout the year so I know that it isnt just the Rebif causing it.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? It really does make me feel rotten and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
