IBS and sore eyes

Hi,

Since I have had IBS I have been getting really sore eyes. The inside of my eye lids (on my waterline) becomes red and sore. This is new to me and I would really like some advice? My eyes tend to hurt when my stomach feels acidic. Also I would love if someone would advice me on what the best food to eat, especially since I am mainly plant based? 

 

Thank you so much.

Ruth

Hi Ruth.  Maybe you could check out histamine intolerance? That can cause diarrhea, bloating etc  and can be mistaken for IBS. Of course I don't know if IBS-D or C is your problem. It can also cause eye problems, itching, irritation, watering,  or symptoms which may be allergic generally.

It is not "anaphylaxis" or a food allergy. It is something else entirely and may be solved quite easily by taking enzymes. Maybe you could ask your doctor about it? And if they can't help, there are private tests (blood tests) for it.

"DAO enzyme".  Sometimes we don't produce enough in the gut and it leads to symptoms of histamine overload.

Wishing you all the best

Hi,

I don't think I have a histamine intolerance but I will have a look into it. I went to a specialist and they said I have IBS but I am not sure if I have IBS-D or C. 

Thank you so much.
