Hi! I'm 53 year old female. I've been trying to resolve an issue that I originally thought was due to food sensitivities. After about 8 months and much experimentation, I've recently ended up eating the Caveman diet (meat, veggies, fruit, nuts, and berries). That seemed to be ok for a short bit but has morphed into my feeling like a have a painful flu in my arms and legs and I feel really (!) fatigued. After eating "regular" food, I feel like I've been hit by large truck along with painful arms and legs. I finally figured out that it wasn't a specific food but the texture of the food. Nuts and Goji berries did me in as I had severe pain through my body. I finally decided that it was better to be hungry that in pain and changed to a liquid diet--mainly water, Ensure, homemade apple sauce, and coconut yogurt. I have way less pain although still fatigued throughout the day. So now I want to know what is happening in my body? Does this sound like a ulcer in my intestinal track? When I eat regular food I also have pain in the lower right quadrant of my abdomen, lower back pain on the right side, and I feel slightly constipated. I said something to my doctor about this but she didn't seem to think it was related to the intestinal track but more likely an ovary problem. I'm schedule to go for ultrasound next week. Open to any ideas! Kate
