Food Allergies

I do not have a gallbladder.  I take Ox Bile for it twice a day to help my body digest foods.  Still sometimes it doesn't matter that I had no fat intake I will have attacks that make me want to vomit, poop, and pass out all at the same time as having off the chart "labor pains".  It's awful sometimes!  Bananas do not agree with me anymore at all.  That is due to my inner ear disease called Meniere's.  Now it seems that other foods are doing the same.  I thought it might be dairy, but I believe I have narrowed it down to yogurt.  Bananas and yogurt, not together, but just eating either of them gives me severe pain and nausea, and puts me on the couch or in bed for 4 to 6 hours trying to breath through to stabbing pains.  Eating is frustrating sometimes for those who are ill.  I am supposed to be on very low to no fat, extremely low sodium, no msg, no caffeine, no artificial sweeteners.  Good gravy!  If that weren't hard enough Gluten can mess with so many aspects of my life from infertility to depression and anxiety that I try to keep my intake of that low.  I've learned how to cook and make food taste really good, but I usually can't avoid one or the other of something I'm supposed to have cut back on or cut out completely.  It will be nice when my body is resurrected and perfected and I can eat as I want.  Until then, I'll keep on working on finding foods that my body will accept.  Oh and one more thing.  The more I eat very small almost snack size meals, that happier my body is, the less it has problems in any of the areas or with any of the foods I mentioned.  So I eat constantly.  I think I wrote this just to get it off my chest.  Sometimes we all need to do that!
