Life Experience - The stomach problems continue...

Having discovered that I was lactose intolerant back in June 2016, to be on the safe side for the Rio Olympic Games I took out an entire suitcase filled with lactose and gluten free snacks!I didn’t want to take any chances of having pain or bloating during the event and, in general, it was pretty successful with minimal issues.After the Olympics, though, it was another story!

Life Experience –Discovering a food intolerance

In the year leading up to Rio 2016 Olympics I had been getting all or sometimes just a few of these symptoms almost every day. Usually in the evenings, just before dinner...I  would feel low on energy and with no idea what was going on, a little lost with what to do. I’d had blood tests, scans, doctor’s examinations. But all to no avail. I seemed, on the outside, completely fine. It was so frustrating and was starting to get me down, I would often stay in when everyone else was going out for dinner because my tummy was sore and I felt a bit sick, unbuttoning my trousers became a normal evening routine. I felt horrid. I had no control and no clear way forward.
