Sorry for the blunt title, but I am in a LOT of pain here digestion wise. I slipped up so I started over on 811 again, and I can't even last a day because of extreme digestion and diarrhea problems. I've been eating a watermelon every morning the past few days (and sometimes one at night), and I believe that this is what is giving me extreme digestion and diarrhea. I have to go so often that it hurts, and I feel dizzy, lightheaded, nauseas, and sweating a lot (aka badly dehydrated, I believe). I've also been eating bananas and dates and making some banana/mixed berry ice cream, but nothing is helping my digestion issues.
What to do? I don't want to give up watermelon since it's my favorite fruit, but I am in such bad pain, feel like I am going to pass out when I pass a bowel movement because it's so painful (still diarrhea) and so dehydrated that I feel like I might need to go to the hospital.
Yeah much thanks Bill. Out of curiosity I googled "colitis" and "crones" and I'm almost certain that I'm halfway between IBS and when things are really bad colitis symptoms. I thought everyone went through these symptoms I go through so one degree or other from time to time, but I'm realizing now it's not at all normal, I should never have these symptoms I've had for the last 20 years. What an interesting past two weeks I've had, one I've figured out that I'm gluten and intolerant to all grains, and now I know what to call this list of odd bowel issues that have been plaguing me. And yes I'm having bowel troubles transitioning to raw, basically have been flared up the last 6 weeks. But every now and then I see hope and normal bowel movement. I really get the sense my guts are healing. Watermelons, lettuce, seem to give me trouble too much roughage I think. So I'm doing a lot of juicing but main thing is 100% no grains etc. and sticking to the raw diet for at least a year to before giving up like I did that last 3x times I tried going raw, it's easy to go raw, it's super hard to stay raw. But I'm finding my health problems only getting worst as I get older eating SAD and the only relief I find is eating raw.
