Wow, you are the first person I have come across who has had the same experience!

Finally saw someone who suggested that I had IBS and should do an elimination diet. Guess what? Not eating wheat completely alleviated my pain in about 6 weeks. So endometriosis? I doubt that was the issue at all. Soon it won't matter because I am now 50 so hopefully I will be free from Tom within a few years.
I don't know if that helps the original poster, but I am glad to hear your outcome was similar. Thanks for that.
