Alright for awhile I've had, well- bowel problems. Was very bloated and constipated in the past, so I started eating a high fat, high protein, low carb diet about this time last year, and I felt great! Full of energy and focus, didn't feel sick every day of my life anymore!

I started eating grains (carbs) again in about September, and while my body didn't quite welcome them easily, I still consumed them. I found out I was gluten and dairy intolerant in November (fatty stools told me so) and since I've cut those from my diet.

I have returned to that same 'high fat, high protein, low carb' diet- the Paleo diet- since, and I've been having aloooot of problems :(

My poop is really fatty, almost yellow! It doesnt bind together like normal, just floats in da toilet bowl. It's so loose, it's practically diarrhea. And I have to go right after meals, like within twenty minutes of eating which I know is anything but normal. I'm not digesting the nutrients I'm consuming, which is so stressful within itself... I eat, yet I get none of the nutrition.

Before, I thought the diarrhea was due to gluten/dairy, but now that I don't eat them, I can't figure out what's wrong!!! And before I didn't have problems with the Paleo diet, but it almost feels like fatty foods worsen my...reaction to meals.

Oh, and the pain is between a moderate achiness to a stabbing pain in my lower left abdomen, below my ribcage and above my hip. Could it be a gallbladder problem? IBS? Diverticulitis? Ulcer?!?? I am so afraid, so in pain, and SO done. -_-

Thank you to everyone who read my post, I hope to maybe find an answer to my pain!
