You got a great answer from paleoDoc. Pls update with what you found out from your doc. My only question is that you said you have pain in the "right abdomen again." Is it pain in the same area, upper right? Or is in on the right side, but... (more)

I started Paleo a year ago. It fixed a gazillion of health problems for me. But the few remaining problems, while I know how to fix them, they contradict one another. I'm at a loss. Here are the facts: IBS for 10 years, high inflammation all... (more)
