I have been having this problem for about two years now. I eat a food, then, within 10-25 minutes my stomach starts hurting. BAD. It bloats and I get really hot, and even start sweating. I then have diarrhea for about 10 minutes, and its over and I'm fine. Like nothing happened. I really just need to know what this is so I can stop eating the foods that cause it. My worst attack was last summer when I had a Subway Italian sandwich with ham lettuce avocado and olive oil. I get it sometime when i eat bread, and just random things. I had an attack last night at about 4 in the morning and I had a chocolate ice cream sandiwch and some chocolate cookies. If I remember any of the other big attacks I will post them here. I just can't really remember them right now.

  • I had a friend who told me about her experience. Her symptoms were quite like yours- diarrheoa after 30 mins of food consumption.. and the food comes out in quite like the original form or smell. Turns out to be her intestine has problems absorbing water and she had to take quite a number of medicine. On her first few months of medication she had to avoid any food containing sugar, leafy vegetables, non-cooked vegetables and even fruits. Not to mention, any food containing milk. There's a whole list of food she had to avoid. She goes for scope about 2~3 times a year now and the medicine she's on helps alot (although she put on 10kg already after she started medication). Maybe you should ask your doctor if you should go for a scope?(i'm having stomach problems too and it sucks)I do hope you get well and hope this helps! (:

  • I am 15, I recently got rid of a terrible abdominal problem that I had had since I was around 8 or 9 , It turned out that I was blood type AB and had a naturally weak digestive system which made it easier for a parasite from red meat to live in my gall bladder. This made my stomach not able to produce enough of the correct enzymes to break down many proteins so whenever I had dairy products or meat I would get painful gas and bouts of abdominal cramping and diarrea which would leave be doubled over in pain on the toilet until it ended, some nights it was hours until I could get off. I went to a naturopath who told me about the parasite and how it damaged my system, she gave my a liquid called para-tox to kill the parasite and Digestive Enzymes to take whenever I had a big meal. After the parasite was gone she gave me pills to repair my systerm and told me to take Oregano Oil which(as well as clearing my synuses) seemed to help a lot. The other thing I did was drink lots of water, I was only drinking maybe 3 or 4 glasses a day and that obviusly couldnt have been good. Now I still take the enzymes maybe once a day and drink much more than enough water and havent had much problems since.( other than discomfort due to my "battered" digestive system and some traumatic memories of my bathroom).

  • The very fast onset and then fast relief points to some form of allergy to certain food component. I found myself allergic to canola oil which is sometime hidden in unspecified "vegetable oil bottles", so try to avoid food components one by one until you find the offensive one that causes you such attacks.

I just can't really remember them right now. I think there is a possibility that you could have Celiac's disease. Before you waste your money on a doctor, try going on a gluten free diet. It is not an easy diet but you should really try it out for 2 weeks. If all of your symptoms stop, you will know for sure that it is Celiacs. My son is gluten free and starting the diet was overwhelming. Here are some food tips to get you started. Also, gluten is hidden in all kinds of food (spices, soy sauce, ketchup). So, don't assume something is gluten free. Rice Crispy's with milkRice with milkCorn Chex with milkCorn tortillas filled with shredded chicken, etc.Corn tortilla quesadillas You can buy a gluten free bread mix so you can make sandwiches (I have found gluten free pantry and pamela's to be yummy). Be careful with lunch meat...it can have gluten in it.CheetosRicePotatoes (most fast food French fried have a little gluten in their fries, so avoid them for now...I still ask myself why that is necessary).Meat but careful with your seasonings...you mitt even need to call the manufacturers 1-800 number and ask them.You can buy gf waffles...central market buckwheat are the best. Vann's are mediocre.You can buy quinoa pasta, brown rice pasta, etc. Make whatever you usually do with that.This is just a very short list but head to your nearest Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joes, Natural Grocers, etc. Ask if they have a list of the gluten free food. I know whole foods does for sure. You can eat gluten free at many restaurants, just check their online menus first...or callI know you can eat gluten free at PF Changs. Make sure you request their gluten free soy sauce.I'm not sure about beer, if you are a beer drinker. Start reading labels at your grocery store. If this short term trial causes your symptoms to cease, get a gluten free book so you can learn more....ex: The Gluten Free Diet. There are a lot of things you will want to know if you do indeed need to be gluten free. Good luck!
