How do I tell if I have a food intolerance or ibs? I get intense stomach cramps 5 minutes into meals and this happens at most meals. I have tried elimination diets and can not pinpoint any triggers. I have limited foods in my diet, but have eaten this way

Try probiotics and especially probiotic foods.
Try coconut oil. Cook with it and add it to meals. Consider gluten and dairy free diet.
