You sound exactly like me. Four years ago, it started with raging diarehea, anal fissures followed, neuropathy in legs and feet, bowel incontenance. I had rectal surgery for the fissures. I began to live on Immodium, 3-5 tablets a week. I started taking Nu-Zymes a year ago (pills with enzymes) and that helped enough to back off the Imodium to 2 tablets a week - big deal ! Well, anything that helped was welcome. A year ago I also tried to take different grains out of my diet. Everyone said it could be a wheat allergy, maybe this maybe that. I stopped drinking milk and cut out the diary products, nothing worked. Four weeks ago, I decided that I really needed to eat for a healthy heart. So, I cut out all fats (except for butter) no milk and NO MEAT of any kind. Within 3 days, the diarehia slowed to such a dull roar that I stopped taking Immodium and no more Nu Zymes. The change was so quick I almost fell over. Just to prove that it really was the meat, I ate some baked chicken and withiin an hour, stomach cramps and diarehia. So no more of that for a few days - things got good again. Then I tried a piece of lean beaf - same problem - within an hour. From my research, allergies to beef are very rare and I couldn't find anything about chicken, but, taking that out of my life has had such a dramatic effect, I am overwhelmed. Does this mean that I am constipated - yeah, right, no way. Will I ever be truely normal. Who knows, but I am going on five weeks without Immodium and I am really pleased. I was a chicken fanatic my whole life - but the trade off is worth it.
