Hi experts. Basic background, 43,male,normal weight, gallbladder removed 1 year ago. Problem, intermittent burning skin sensation, burning urethra mainly before and after urinating, not during, also intermittent. Interestingly both seem to happen at different times. After gallbladder removal I started to eat healthier foods, also started juicing a lot, spinach, chard, kale, carrots, zucchini etc always made me very tired within 10 mins, also made my eyes feel burnt, so I stopped it after a few months. Still ate spinach etc though, and lots of sweet potatoes and nuts.
Now I am trying to go paleo, as a normal healthy diet with lots of carbs make me sluggish, so more meats and fat, energy is much better, I am keeping some carbs in as I transition as having no gallbladder is holding back me going to high fat yet. Carbs mainly from sweet pots and some white rice.
Problem is I am still getting the burning skin in fact it's worse at times, can't point to a specific food. Do you think it could be high oxalates? Or something else from meats?
Doc did all usual urine tests all clear, he thinks it's a reaction but has given up!
Anti histamines don't seem to do much if anything, so I don't think it is histamine in foods.
I have also been waking in night with trouble getting back to sleep. My skin seems very dry too.
Appreciate any advice or pointers.
