Thanks Tarnip actually the main pain subsided pretty quickly and overall I am doing really well now. Identifying those allergies are vital for your gut health, once you eliminate those foods you have a chance to heal without the constant irritation. I did give up one at a time initially, but I feel soooo much better with more energy, clear head, more motivation, that it is all worth it. I don't touch gluten at all either. I still recommend the whole30 to really find out all of your issues. The faster you do the quicker you can get on top of it all. I did just go back onto the acid blockers for a bit to give my ulcer a chance to heal. I didn't want to, but I think it is for the best. I felt the same way as you about dairy. My absolute favourite foods are things like egg custards. I initially didn't think I could give up all grains either.
