I have what was diagnosed as Ibs and have been dealing with symtoms for years now. I turned vegetarian a while back and found that helped as I don’t digest meat very well and it makes my symptoms worse.
I have never been able to eat large amounts of iron rich greens and high iron vegetarian foods either due to the Ibs so now I have very low iron, which I don’t know how to fix……I cannot take iron pills as I suffer terrible headaches on them , which rules out transfusion as it will have the same effect if not worse. ….and who knows if my stomach even absorbs iron anymore after so many years not working well. I eat good food, take protiotics and b12…… but my iron is the problem and it’s been decreasing everytime I get tested.
