See you MD: You need to get a complete history and physical, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging as well as possible endoscopy to evaluate the source of your distress. Perhaps dietary restrictions may be at fault but other more serious causes should be excluded first such as pancreatitis, malabsorption, hepatitis, and/tumors.
